Beautiful Tamarindo, Costa Rica

With its pristine beaches, crystal clear blue waters, superb natural surroundings, and near perfect weather, it is no wonder that Tamarindo is among the most popular vacation destinations in Costa Rica.

A former fishing village in the northern regions of Guanacaste province on the North Pacific Coast, Tamarindo, Costa Rica is the area’s most well developed tourist town with plenty of accommodations, shopping and entertainment to suit every pocket. With much to enjoy & even more to do, this multi-cultural community is the ideal place to have some fun in the sun!

We have a six-month wet season and a six-month dry season, but one thing we never have is cold! You can surf all year ‘round in Tamarindo, so don’t worry about the weather!

This is the perfect beach for learning to surf! The waves are generally small to medium and the long stretch of sandy beach where we teach is fabulous—no rocks, no strong currents, nothing to worry about at all except catching waves. Surf Camps like Kelly's Surf Shop across from Witchs Rock Surf Shop give you a great experience.

Within easy driving distance are several other gorgeous beaches that are safe for beginning and intermediate surfers. Tamarindo is a small town with residents from all over the world as well as local Costa Ricans. When you aren’t in the water you can choose from many different kinds of cuisine, take fun day trips, go to a yoga class, go fishing, dive, snorkel, ride horses or ATVs through the mountains, get a massage, go out dancing…and of course we have grocery stores, doctors, a pharmacy, lots of little shops and internet cafes.
