I do like a beach with crashing ocean waves, and I've enjoyed the Atlantic Ocean at many locations in Europe and Africa. I may have been in the Pacific before - at the Barrier Reef, where does the Coral Sea stop and the Pacific Ocean begin? But for the 60at60 the opportunity arose on the trip to Costa Rica.
We stayed on the remote beaches of the Osa Peninsula and enjoyed the peaceful and scenic tropical beaches edged by palms dotted with squabbling Macaws. The water was warm but fierce at times with waves that knocked you off your feet, and time spent snorkelling brought a rich reward of colourful fishes.
Definitely a great 60th and worth doing - I suspect some of the later planned swimming episodes will present more of a challenge!
