The hotel and city did not have a lot of family activities in the evening.
Tamarindo fue una vez un pueblo dedicado a la pesca, sin embargo, hoy en día ha ido evolucionando hasta llegar a ser la zona más desarrollada y el pueblo turístico más accesible. Situado en la costa oeste central de la Península de Nicoya, Tamarindo ofrece a los visitantes de cualquier tipo de presupuesto la oportunidad de experimentar las playas vírgenes de la región y la increíble biodiversidad con una amplia gama de hoteles. A pesar de que la ciudad es reciente y en vías de desarrollo, todavía conserva la tranquilidad característica de la zona.
Separado de Tamarindo por el río Matapalo encontramos a Playa Grande, con numerosas piscinas naturales que se forman cuando la marea baja. Practicar surf en Playa Grande es fascinante, independientemente de su nivel de destreza. La ciudad acoge varias competencias internacionales de surf, lo cual es testimonio de la calidad de este deporte en esta área. Los visitantes que buscan alojamiento de lujo pueden hacerlo al sur de Playa Grande o en Playa Langosta, una hermosa playa de arena blanca, cerca del Río San Francisco.
Como centro regional, Tamarindo ofrece una amplia gama de servicios para los visitantes incluyendo la pesca deportiva, buceo, snorkeling, natación y cabalgatas. El aeropuerto de Tamarindo ofrece a los visitantes que se encuentran en la zona de San José una perfecta forma para llegar a esta área y el aeropuerto de Liberia ofrece una muy conveniente opción para los visitantes internacionales que quieren aterrizar cerca de la costa.
Quizás el mayor recurso de Tamarindo es su proximidad al Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Tamarindo, que comprende 1000 hectáreas de increíble bosque protegido, incluyendo abundantes manglares y estuarios. Tours para disfrutar la fascinante vida vegetal y animal pueden ser reservado directamente en Tamarindo, incluyendo los viajes en canoa a los hábitats costeros. Justo al norte de la ciudad se ubica el Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas, que ofrece a los visitantes la oportunidad de ver los reptiles más grandes del mundo, la tortuga Baula, la cual llega a la costa a poner sus huevos. También está muy cerca el Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Ostional y el Parque Nacional Barra Honda.
Por su amplio desarrollo, Tamarindo se ha llenado de elementos de la cultura extranjera, desde modernos cafés a lujosos restaurantes combinados con la cultura Tica. Haciendo una atractiva combinación de ambos mundos. Los norteamericanos y los europeos en particular, disfrutarán de los numerosos elementos de su propia cultura disponibles en Tamarindo junto con la autenticidad de la cultura local.

Tamarindo is a beautiful town. Many activities and a beautiful beach. Several dinning options to choose from. However it does tend to get a bit crowded. Good spot to learn to surf and relax on the beach. Pura Vida.
Tamarindo is a beach lovers paradise. The 36 degrees were necessary when spending time on the ocean. Our tamarindo hotel the Occidental Tamarindo Beach was an absolute hit. The buffet and A La Carta restaurant are so varied and tasty, different choice of food always, with cooking stations, deep fried fish, omelet stations, so many choices of hot and salads, cheeses, homemade ice cream, desserts. The food was endless and delicious
Enjoyed all bars and restaurants we visited. Surf Shack Burgers, Joe's, Latitude all excellent
Tamarindo was a lovely final destination. It takes up a small amount of space but is packed with a lot to do. There were always a lot of people on the main street, but the resort and other locations do a great job and making you feel more removed from the chaos. There is not as much nature right in town because it is so crowded, but the many excursions around the area let you see everything you want. I would highly recommend this location as a final destination for travelers, as it provides an excellent chance to relax and recuperate with a gorgeous view.
We loved Tamarindo too! It was fun to travel to both locations because they were so different from one another.
Beach was rocky right in front of the resort, but we walked up a bit to a better area. The Ticos were helpful.
Beach was lovely, great for beginner surfing and beachcombing. Could rent loungers and umbrella for small charge. Many beach vendors.
Omg all of the food was super amazing! All the locals a friendly too. The beach and the water is incredible. Wear LOTS of sunscreen 😊
Nice beach city that wasn't too crowded in May, but I suspect it gets crowded in high season. Beautiful beaches in the Guanacaste area and awesome food especially mahi mahi, sea bass and ceviche. 😊
Definitely PACKED with tourists. Great if you love shopping, various restaurants and the beach/surfing. Not really our thing, we wished we stayed in the Arenal area more instead of going to Tamarindo.
Tamarindo was great. It is extremely touristy and busy but there is lots to see and do. I can see how this would be the absolute perfect place to come if you were looking for a party and a good time. We enjoyed spending time here but were very thankful to head back to Playa Grande vie the estuary ferries after a few hours of wandering around Tamarindo
We really enjoyed our time in Tamarindo.
We ate at Bamboo Sushi and Dragonfly, both were fabulous food and very friendly people especially at the Dragonfly. We were there over the new year and it was really busy but still fine. We had an incredible time.
I liked this area as you had the beach and were not to far to venture out for some excursions.
People visit Tamarindo for the surf and for good reason! It offers waves for the beginners and experienced alike.
We visited Tamarindo during the slow season in September and it was wonderful. We had the beach to ourselves and the bars and restaurants were never full. That being said, certain shops and restaurants were closed due to tourists not being around, so if you're wanting a bustling, action packed environment, pick another month!
Tamarindo was fantastic. We ate and drank at a few different local establishments and they were all great. I do not believe you could find a bad place in the whole town!!
I would spend more time here. I loved the resort, beach, and busy atmosphere with friendly locals and tourists.
More of a bar and restaurant scene at night, with surfing and laid back hangouts during the day, this place is less about nature and more about the good life, but it was exactly what we had in mind for our stay there.
