Pura Vida!

Tamarindo is about the beach life, nature, surf and sun! Tamarindo is a bustling town filled with surfers, and families and nature lovers alike! It’s a walkable ever growing town with a huge array of restaurants and amazing nightlife complete with fire dancers on the beach and DJ’s from around the world. It’s nature at its best with mangroves, hiking trails in jungles with troops of moneys in trees above, iguanas waddling by to say hello and few horses taking breaks in the shade.
