Just curious - why did you post your question in the Tambor forum? If you look at a map, you will see that the RIU is far far away from Tambor.

The closest nightlife to the RIU would be in Playas del Coco and the next would be Tamarindo.

However, I would take another look at the RIU. If you are looking for a "white, sugar-sand beach with turquoise water and sitting by the pool and enjoying the nightlife" experience -then Costa Rica will probably be a waste of money for you.

Costa Rica is about nature. Waterfalls, rainforests, cloud forests, volcanoes, hot springs, rafting, hiking and enjoying wildlife and the fantastic scenery -- and the friendly people -- as well as "ocean" activities, of course. And while it is, of course, your choice -staying at an AI is not often the best choice for Costa Rica. There is no "tourist ghetto of resorts" like some other countries. There is a good tourist infrastructure all over the country with excellent lodging and restaurants available.

The RIU in Costa Rica is often spoken of as the "most hated hotel in Costa Rica" - and for good reason. If you really want to stay at an AI, there are some other great choices, including the Barcelo Langosta which is very close to Tamarindo for your night life as well as the Villas Sol in Playa Hermosa which is near Playas del Coco for more nightlife.

This is a good source for general information: www.anywherecostarica.com and also has information about various AI's in various areas. This also: www.costa-rica-guide.com
