The Anti Tourist goes to Costa Rica 2k10!

What follows is a series of photographs by Ben Britz and Elizabeth Seward which, we’re confident, perfectly capture the bon vivant essence of this beautiful country. And if not perfectly, then acceptably. Anyway, here are some pictures of Costa Rica.

Stormy Waters: Grand Cayman

7 Mile Beach, Grand Cayman is a pretty popular destination if you’re stopping off on the island–unless you’re stopping off during one of those terrible and totally regular Caribbean tropical storms. Then the beach is empty. I’ve always enjoyed watching storms over water, but watching the storm you see brewing in this picture over the teal waters of Grand Cayman takes home the cake for me. Even though the horizontal pounding rain shut me and a handful of other people as close to the bar as we could get in the nearest beach-side bar/restaurant hut, I look back on those stormy hours fondly–glad I saw a version of these waters most tourists don’t.
