Playa Tamarindo is one of the most beautiful beaches on the pacific coast of Costa Rica. It is situated adjacent to “Las Baulas Marine National Park”, which is one of the most important nesting places on the planet for the giant Leatherback turtle (Dermochelys coriacea). These turtles are the biggest kind of sea turtle in the world.
Due to the fact that Tamarindo Bay has some of the most tranquil currents on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica it is considered one of the safest beaches. Ideal for swimming, kayaking, surfing, boogie-boarding, snorkeling and SCUBA diving. Sailboat and catamaran trips are also available; special Sunset-Trips are offered in which the spectacular and renowned sunsets of this bay can be enjoyed. The surrounding areas of the village are great for bicycling and horseback riding. Golfers can benefit from two beautiful 18-hole golf courses only 20 minutes away from Tamarindo and the hotel.
Several tours are offered to protected areas, such as boat trips into the estuary of the Tamarindo river where nature lovers can enjoy this natural paradise. Trips to nearby national parks, like Palo Verde, Rincón de la Vieja, Barra Honda and Tenorio National Park, among others are organized daily.
Even though our Four Star Beachfront Boutique Hotel is embedded in a natural environment, tourist do not miss out on the most important infrastructural features such as supermarkets or pharmacies. Our Concierge desk is here to help you.
