The small city of Tamarindo is located along Costa Rica's northern Pacific coast, in the popular Guanacaste region. In recent years Tamarindo's beach's popularity has exploded as the Guanacaste region has drawn increasing numbers of foreign tourists, and hotels, restaurants and shops have quickly sprung up in the town. Those who enjoy sporty outdoors activities will be pleased with the options available in Tamarindo.
Tamarindo Beach: an expanse of white sand bracketed by rocky headlands, soft hills rising behind and the rich, blue ocean waters. You can swim in these waters, but beware of sharp rocks hiding beneath the surface. The best water for swimming is found at the southern end of Playa Tamarindo.
Sail between the trees high above a tropical forest just outside of Tamarindo. Pinilla Canopy Tours will pick you up at your hotel and bring you to the forest, where you'll receive safety instruction and don a harness to ride on the zip line.
