From its humble beginnings as a quiet little fishing village, Tamarindo has developed into one of the most popular tourist destinations in Costa Rica. While well-known for its world-class surf, Tamarindo has a variety of activities to offer. There are estuaries to explore, hiking trails, and stretches of beaches where Leatherback sea turtles trek to lay their eggs. The night life in Tamarindo is fantastic. Whether you are looking for a small bar with live tropical music or a luxurious restaurant, you can find it all here.
