Playa Tamarindo Information
Ever dreamed of capturing a photo of the perfect sunset splashed in bright orange and rose tones, with waves crashing in the foreground and moored sailboats dotting the horizon? Playa Tamarindo, or Tamarindo beach, is a must-see. Soft sand and coconut palms line the shore where the waves, perfect for a beginner or advanced surfers, crash. Grab a drink at one of a handful of beachfront bars and restaurants, and sit as you watch the sun dip toward the Pacific horizon and illuminate the sky in a stunning palette of hues.
TAMARINDO SURF PARADISE
Here, you’ll find plenty of spots to rent surfboards or take surf lessons, or maybe try kayaking or a Stand-Up Paddleboard. There are boat trips to ferry you into the nearby estuary which leads to Las Baulas National Marine Park, home of nesting leatherback sea turtles, many a monkey, rare bird and crocodile. Keep your eyes peeled to the horizon between December and April, when you might see whales migrating to warmer waters to give birth.
