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 vacation rental reviews

We had never travelled to Costa Rica until we visited Tamarindo. The Casa was clean and the kitchen well stocked with pots, pans, salt/pepper, tin foil, plastic wrap, plenty of toilet paper and paper towels. That is a plus because not all VRBOs provide them. The water doesn't heat up past warm and the toilets don't flush well. Other than that, we found this Casa a wonderful, private, clean, comfortable getaway from the hustle and bustle of the touristy town. The swimming pool is perfect for the end of the day dip to cool off after walking the 8-9 minutes to town and beach. The security guard is friendly. Once a week cleaning was provided free which was a nice surprise. We gave this 4 stars because the gate key and front door access communication was a disaster.

Beautiful setting, spacious rooms, modern and fully equipped kitchen, outdoor gas grill. Easy drive to the nearby beaches and restaurants. I will definitely stay there again!

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.
