Tamarindo is a beautiful town located on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. This is one of our favorite places to enjoy a beach day and offers awesome year-round activities like surfing, snorkeling, and sailing. There are also plenty of adrenaline-pumping opportunities like ziplining and ATVing, and we love the nightlife here as well!

We personally try to stay at least 2 days when we visit Tamarindo because it’s such a good balance of fun and relaxation, and there are always things to do no matter the time of day. While visiting Tamarindo, we recommend grabbing a bite to eat and watching the sunset over the water, and you can find more details about what to do in the blogs below.
