Playa Tamarindo is on Costa Rica's west coast on the Nicoya Peninsula and is one of the country's most beautiful beaches. The long, white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters attract nature lovers, surfers, turtle watchers and sun seekers all year round, even in the rainy season. Though it is a great tourist destination, the town and area still have a very Costa Rican feel. Local fisherman and farmers still live and work as their families have for generations before them.

Local Color

Besides being a nature lover's paradise with numerous outdoor activities and wildlife, Tamarindo has a very enjoyable and active nightlife. The town boasts numerous cafes, restaurants, bars and discotheques, as well as local Fiestas. These 'fiestas' move from town to town, but are never far away and a great deal of fun.
