Tamarindo Beach, Guanacaste

Tamarindo Beach, Guanacaste

Tamarindo Beach is, without a doubt, the most famous beach in Costa Rica. What was once a peaceful coastal fishing town is now one of the top destinations for those visiting Costa Rica.

For some years, Tamarindo has become the perfect destination for those seeking to learn to surf or professional surfers who like the best waves. It is also a strategic point for those who want to learn Spanish and learn to surf at the same time. There are several Spanish schools with different durations in their courses where you can learn both Spanish and surf and get to know Costa Rica.

In addition to its waves and the extensive beach, approximately 2 km long, the area offers you incredible landscapes and places to sunbathe. It is located within the Baulas National Marine Park and is separated from Playa Grande by the Tamarindo or Rio Mata Palo estuary.

Tamarindo offers a vast range of hotels, with beachfront hotels, ocean views, hostels, or hotels of a good category at very affordable prices, in addition to many vacation homes and condos. Tamarindo Beach is 60 minutes from Liberia International Airport, and from here, you can visit other close beaches, such as Conchal, Flamingo, and Avellanas, or visit Playa Grande during the nesting season of the leatherback sea turtle.

The town offers a vast gastronomic offer, with variants from all over the world. Here you will find an Argentine grill, Mediterranean restaurants, and pizzerias, among others, in addition to the bars and restaurants located in front of the beach. From Tamarindo Beach, you can enjoy all the tours and adventures that Guanacaste offers you. Nearby are national parks such as the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, Palo Verde, Rio Celeste Waterfall, and many others. Also, you can enjoy activities such as horseback riding, ATVs, kayaks, paddle boards, surf lessons, and more in the area.

The sunsets in Tamarindo are simply spectacular and will leave you breathless. We recommend taking a sunset cruise catamaran to discover the coast, its solitary beaches, and the abundant marine life in the area. As you have seen in Tamarindo Beach, you find the amenities of a city, banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, etc., in addition to its wide range of accommodations, activities, and restaurants, and what to say about its scenic beauty that makes Tamarindo an unmissable place on your trip to Costa Rica.
