Enjoy the wide, golden sands of Tamarindo Beach and watch as surfers take on the waves. Pop into one the beach bars to enjoy a cold drink, or check out what the vendors are peddling. If you’re interested in learning to surf, the beach provides easy going waves, perfect for beginners. Sun loungers and umbrellas are available for hire, but you might miss out on them unless you arrive early; consider bringing your own sun protection, as there's no natural shade at the beach. If you arrive at the right time, you can also enjoy a famous sunset from the shore. Put Tamarindo Beach and other Tamarindo attractions into our Tamarindo travel itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Don't let the waves intimidate you. Great instructors and a sandy ocean floor will make it easy for beginners to catch a wave or three. 
  • Tamarind is small, everything is focused on both sides of the main road, the typical resort tourism, nice to spend 2-3 days in your tour of volcanoes and jungles of Costa Rica. For more would be boring, if you not combine it with excursions. To judge by the amount of business, should be a good site for the surf, but not had much luck with the waves. If you find a wild Beach, it there are a few miles north and South. This is rather, "families" beach... mostly from the United States.

  • Loved the shopping, food and the lively day/night life. Definitely a place to stop if you are in the area.
