About the neighborhood
Tamarindo is a beautiful little town on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. It's known for it's surfing and sunsets. Adults and kids alike will find plenty to do - from surf lesson, to mini-golf, ATVs, zip-lines, river boat tours, and so much more. Shopping enthusiasts can make a day of exploring the many boutiques, shops, and kiosks, and those craving some pampering can enjoy a day at the spa. There's a large variety of food, from falafel to filet mignon, to authentic Costa Rican cuisine. Tamarindo is a very international town, so the Italian restaurants are truly Italian, as well as Mexican, Asian, French, BBQ, etc. Many of the restaurants have play areas for children.
