Tamarindo - Costa Rica Things to do - On Land

Tamarindo Activities

There is lots to see and do in Tamarindo and the province of Guanacaste. Tour operators are aplenty and offer comfortable excursions aboard air conditioned shuttles to destinations such as the quaint pottery village of Guatil, the white water rafting on the Corobici River, the wetland sanctuary Palo Verde Nacional Park, and full day trips to Volcan Rincon de la Vieja and Volcan Arenal.

Within easy driving distance of Tamarindo Beach, the more adventurous can experience soaring on a zip line through the tropical dry forest, a spectacular way to see the canopy, and spot wildlife.

Guanacaste is famous for its horseback riding culture and horseback riders can take leisurely tours over pastures and through local villages and remote beaches. Casagua Horse Tours offers healthy and well taken care of horses.

Another way to explore the countryside is by ATV. Popular day tours will take you off the beaten path, over and mountains to Nearby Costa Rica Beaches where there is a break to sample fresh fruit drinks and 'Tipico' Costa Rican lunches.

If you would like to discover Guanacaste from above, then you can do so in style with an ultra light aircraft, a Gyro. The Gyro will even skim over the crests of waves in a maneuver called 'areal surfing'.

Just across the estuary from Tamarindo is Playa Grande and Parque Nacional Las Baulas, home to the endangered Giant Leatherback Turtle. From October to March guided night trips will take tourists to watch the turtles come ashore to lay their eggs.

Daytime activities within Tamarindo can include renting a bike and exploring the town, playing a game or two of tennis at the Tamarindo Tennis Club, a round of fun mini golf at Bolas Locas, or even learning Spanish.

More Things To Do in Tamarindo

Tamarindo Shopping

Not too long ago the only souvenirs you could get in Tamarindo were handfuls of puka shells, but those days are over. Today there is plenty of shopping to be had from a farmers market, gift shops, to book stores and surf shops.

Tamarindo Water Activities

Tamarindo has a long stretch of beach and the water temperature is warm year round. This makes for great water sports such as surfing, fishing, snorkeling, sailing, diving, and the sunset sailing tours, an activity not to be missed.

Tamarindo Mind and Body

A vacation is not complete without a nice relaxing massage, a facial or an exotic body scrub. Tamarindo also offers personal trainers, gym classes, pilates and yoga. And nothing quite beats a meditation on the beach.
