On the Pacific Coast, Tamarindo is a surfer’s paradise and boasts of almost 3.5 km (2.1 mi) of soft sandy beaches. Another popular activity here is deepwater fishing; charters are easily available around town. It is a great seaside town to stay in for a longer holiday - soak in the sun and eventually discover Tamarindo beyond the coast. You can visit the famous Tamarindo Night Market on Thursday for delicious food, live music, and souvenirs.
The city is surrounded by national parks, the nearest being Las Baulas Marine National Park. It is a rare place where you can witness Leatherback Turtles lay eggs. And if you stay in Tamarindo long enough, you will easily spot wildlife on your walks, from Howler Monkeys to rare native birds. Experience a Costa Rican summer by staying at one of these best long-term rentals in Tamarindo, Costa Rica.
