Tamarindo Costa Rica Vacation


Tamarindo Travel Directory

Things you will discover about Tamarindo

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 runk 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!
