Make Tamarindo your next getaway

You may know its name as one of Costa Rica's most popular destinations for surfing, dancing, and nightlife on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. But there are sides of Tamarindo that you likely haven't considered - the convenient home base for beach-goers, the culinary epicenter, and the well-developed town with paved roads and bridges that link it to Costa Rica's scenic northern reaches. It's in this beachfront haven where you'll find surf, swim, and endless opportunities for outdoor adventures in our Tamarindo vacation rentals.

Recent Tamarindo guest reviews

We stayed the last two nights here. We had a party of two adults and a 7 yo. The location could not be better. We had contemplated staying at a resort, and we’re so happy that we chose not to. This property is literally right across from the beach where we got to enjoy the day playing in the waves. Once we left the ocean, we headed to the pool, which was very clean and had a fun waterfall. we were able to walk around town and even went to the Saturday morning farmers market. We always felt safe. The condo is absolutely huge. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. And it was nice to have a washer and dryer after traveling a week in Costa Rica. we will definitely recommend this place to other families and hope to be back soon.

I absolutely loved it here. I stayed for a full month and it had everything I needed for a longer stay. The place was very spacious and the beds were super comfortable. It is also in a great location - close to town but yet in a quiet area with loads of wildlife, and it was so amazing to sit on my patio and watch howler monkeys! I would definitely recommend this condo for anyone looking to stay in Tamarindo

It was close to the beach but at the same time far from the noise. Great place for families and friends

Where is Tamarindo?

Perched on the crescent edge of Tamarindo Bay in the northwestern province of Guanacaste, the town of Tamarindo is home to a modest year-round population of a few hundred residents. The town and its surrounding beaches are easily reached from Liberia Airport 42 miles northeast, or in a few hours by car from the capital city of San José 160 miles east. 

Things to do in Tamarindo

Whether you've come to surf or savor the pura vida of Costa Rica, you'll do it all within a few steps of our Tamarindo vacation rentals.

Beloved among experienced surfers for its lengthy waves, Tamarindo's Playa Grande is a wonderful place for beginners as well. Take a surf lesson and learn to navigate the soft winds and consistent breaks, or spend your days sailing, kayaking, sportfishing, and horseback riding on the sand. Tamarindo is also in the midst of Las Baulas National Marine Park, a seasonal nesting site for leatherback sea turtles between October and February. Simply register for a guided tour at the park headquarters and you'll be treated to a nighttime glimpse of one of nature's most fragile and fascinating processes.

One of the benefits of Tamarindo's commercial development is its variety of world-class cuisine and fun-filled nightlife. Grab a fresh, healthy breakfast at Sprout or La Bodega, feast on delicious lunches at Surf Shack Burgers & Wings, and sample the freshest of seafood at Bamboo Sushi Club. Seasons by Shlomy is also a fantastic stop for Mediterranean fusion dishes that employ the region's incredible fresh fish and produce.

Day trips from Tamarindo

Perhaps the greatest draw of Tamarindo is its central position on Costa Rica's northwestern coast - a natural playground for beach-goers, surfers, and leisurely day-trippers.

Make your first stop at Playa Avellana 11 miles south, a "Little Hawaii" of white sand, azure waters, and towering offshore breaks. Snack on fish tacos and ceviche among the palms at Lola's, and spend the rest of the afternoon visiting Playa Negra, Playa Langosta, and other famous surf spots in the south.

Just 14 miles north of Tamarindo, you'll find the quiet shores and tide pools of Flamingo Beach, an ideal spot to fish offshore for tuna, marlin, swordfish, and snapper. The neighboring Conchal Beach is named for the millions of crushed shells that compose its sand, creating one of the most unique seascapes in Costa Rica. And if you continue past the Papagayo Peninsula to Santa Rosa National Park, you'll find unrivaled surf conditions near Ollie's Point and Witch Rock.

Ease, convenience, and adventure come together in our Tamarindo vacation rentals - begin planning your escape to Costa Rica today.
