Although we have been visiting Costa Rica for many years, this was our first trip to the Nicoya Peninsula & Tambor. After an uneventful drive from San Jose, we arrived in Puntarenas to board the ferry. It was a somewhat overcast day with some rain, but the 70 minute ferry ride was calm & enjoyable. The drive to Tango Mar Resort took about 45 mins. in the rain. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Xavier at the reception desk by a warm welcome,wet towels to refresh ourselves from the drive & with a cocktail. Our room was located on the 3rd floor overlooking the ocean...It was lovely. The room was spacious with a large shower & bath & private balcony. Our stay was only 2 nites, but it was very enjoyable. The beach is beautiful & very private. We were not able to visit the waterfall as the rain had washed out much of the trail. The food is the restaurant was fresh & well prepared & nicely presented. Breakfast included freshly made juice each morning (orange w/papaya; watermelon); Bloody Mary mixed by Junior( w/his "secret ingredient") was delicious. Drink & wine prices are reasonable as is the menu. Lovely salad w/fresh avocado & geens in a light dressing. The fried rice w/seafood I had one night was presented on a sizzling platter & would have been enough to split. The caesar salad & desserts are done tableside, which lends a continental feel to the resort. The entire staff ( including Jesus, Javier, Eduardo,) was friendly & very helpful. We will certainly come back again - hopefully not during the rainy season so that we may enjoy the pool & other resort amenities.
