Description: Tamarindo Inn------------The Tamarindo Inn is owned and operated by our family and you can tell the minute you get there by the Pura Vida. My father in Law started from nothing and now has a 20 room hotel that has all the modern ammonites one needs from AC, Pool and even a honeymoon suite. My mother in law will chef up some of the best Pinto in the country each morning. The rooms are a basic hotel room with a small TV and enough space to sleep and get back outside to your next ADVENTURE.Located a half a mile outside of TamarindoYou can walk into town or take a 2 dollar cab ride and be right in the middle of the action.Casitas Del Estero-----------------------------------------------------Casitas Del Estero compile of 10, 2 bedroom homes all with beach access right outside your doorstep and is one of my favorite places to hangout for family get-togethers. Out front you can start your walk down the 4 mile stretch of beach Tamarindo offers, to the North is Playa Granda and all her beauty. The home has everything you would need to be comfortable along with the access to Town within a 2 minute walk. Bars,restaurants and shopping!Howler Monkey Jungle Bungalows---------------------------------------Features beach access through a wooden bridge path within the Mangrove. Offers breakfast and nonstop visual entertainment from the local monkeys and other guests hanging around in the trees. We have 13 Bungalows that are tucked into the Mangrove just off the beach in a natural setting that only gets better when the sun goes down and the evening noises sound from your patio fully equipped with a hammock for maximum relaxation. Casa Ricante-------------------------------------------------------Our jewel Casa Ricante is where you wanna be to escape for full pampered relaxation. Each morning Scarlet will be there at 630am sharp to chef up all you would want for breakfast. We have 3 bedrooms with full bathrooms, a pool and a huge patio for outdoor living. Beach is about 200 yards away with a wonderful landscape of rocks and sand to find shells and zone out.

We had the opportunity to experience Ricante's awesomeness experience firsthand and it was absolutely incredible! We arrived and were picked up by our host for the couple weeks we were down there, Mr Ricante himself. He took us right to Casa Ricante, a cozy beautiful house just 20 minutes south of Tamarindo, minutes from the beach. We took full advantage... More

just got back from a week in CR and had ceviche everyday. What a great place and idea. They have all different kinds of ceviche and all great. On top of the great fish they have insane hot sauces that are made by them from fresh local produce. I brought a few bottles home to try to duplicate the dishes... More

Don't skip this place when in Tamarindo. Hot sauces where fantastic and loved the ceviche. Great for a light lunch on a hot day. We had ceviche at a few of the higher rated restaurants but this was our favorite.

Want a quick, refreshing, Costa Rican, healthful and delicious bite to eat when walking around downtown Tamarindo? On the second floor of a small commercial building, with easy access from the outside, is Ricante an unassuming little-hole-the-wall cevicheria. This was the find of our trip. It's not much more than just a little stand, with some tables. It's about the... More

We stopped by this place to try the hot sauces. You can sample the 4 different sauces. We also tried the shrimp ceviche which was very very good. The sauces are all natural. This is a great place to visit while down in Tamarindo. They are in the process of being the sauces state-side. I can not wait to see... More

I have know Ricky Ricante for a long time. I was there and watched the creation of Ricante. The awesome Ricante hot sauces started in his kitchen and progressed into a booming business.
