If you are ready for your next tropical adventure then this trip to Costa Rica will be one for the books. Tamarindo is along the North Pacific coast of Costa Rica with breathtaking scenery and endless activities to do. Tamarindo is definitely where you go if you want to soak up some rays and dive into the water because there are endless opportunities to do so - you can go scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, sailing, sport fishing, and so much more! If you want to check out some of the amazing wildlife that is native to Costa Rica you can just head to the Marino Las Baulas National Park and see if you can find the leatherback sea turtles, over 150 species of birds, and of course the monkeys (including native species - squirrel monkey, capuchins, howler monkey, and spider monkeys)! And don’t worry, there is always amazing food to taste all around the city - and if you happen to eat just a tad too much you can just dance it off at one of the local bars or discos! You’re bound to have an incredible time in Tamarindo, so check out one of these Airbnb vacation rentals to begin your adventure!
Let’s start this list off with a bang with a cozy upscale Costa Rican style bungalow. This particular bungalow had one bedroom, but the hosts also have a two-bedroom bungalow available for rent. It also has one bed, one bathroom, and you’ll literally be sleeping next to a beautiful pool. You can also drink coffee with the howler monkeys and tropical birds (or at least the sounds of them!) from your private balcony. This rental also has a kitchenette, living area with daybed, and lots of hammocks to lounge on. This Airbnb can comfortably accommodate four guests.
