• Playa Tamarindo Holidays
  • Overview

    Playa Tamrindo is the most popular beach resort in Guanacaste province, in the north west of Costa Rica. It has a perennial reputation as Costa Rica’s top surfing destination with excellent waves, the biggest of which can reach a height of up to 12 feet, although this is usually only seen in June, July and August. It’s a great place to learn to surf. The town also lures sunbathers and party-goers who are drawn to the golden arc of sand and generally low-rise hotels, and bars and restaurants.

    Tamarindo also forms part of the Las Baulas National Marine Park where some of the world’s rarest turtle lay their eggs from November to April. Foodies will be spoilt for choice with some of the best restaurants in the country. There's also a thriving Saturday market full of conspicuously good bargains.
