Tamarindo – Costa Rica

Where your happiness is our number one priority


This is where we could put a long and detailed description about why you should come to Tamarindo.

We could talk about how the ocean is so warm, that when you float in it, all your worries melt away. Then we could tell you about the Howler Monkeys who will cheerfully wake you up so that you can experience a glorious colorful sunrise. We could also share how exhilarating it is to set sail in the bay, catch your first sailfish and ride your first wave.

We probably could then finish it up by mentioning the delicious food to be eaten at small little local cafes, the exotic cocktails to be drunk on rooftop bars, the dancing to be done at night, the friends to be made and the memories to be created.

But the truth is that as you go through this website you will realize all this yourself. So instead we will just tell you one thing: Hurry… flights might be on sale today!

Tamarindo Adventures


Although there is nothing wrong with lazing on the beach all day, there are many adventures to be had in and near Tamarindo.

Nothing beats the trill of zip lining above the tree canopy, discovering deserted beaches by horseback, exploring the jungle by ATV or snorkeling among large schools of fish.

Volcanoes, caverns, and waterfalls are just a short bus ride away. And the very best way to enjoy Tamarindo’s many glorious sunsets is with cocktail in hand and breeze on your face while sailing on a large catamaran.
