Transfer to Tamarindo

You will arrive in Tamarindo, a popular surf destination on Costa Rica’s Pacific coastline. Tourists flock to surf the waves of Tamarindo’s golden sandy beaches. Close to the town is Playa Tamarindo, while further afield you can discover Playa Langosta and Playa Grande. There are a number of water activities available in Playa Tamarindo, such as SUP, fishing and snorkelling while in town you can wander the local markets or dine at one of the many fantastic restaurants.

Tamarindo free day

Today is a free day to relax and enjoy the surf, sand and sunshine of Tamarindo. You can choose to take a walk along the soft, golden sandy beach of Playa Tamarindo, enlist in a surfing class or even go horseback riding. It’s up to you. Whatever you choose, you are sure to enjoy all that this tropical destination has to offer.

Tamarindo free day

Perhaps use this free day in Tamarindo to explore a little further afield? Situated in Las Baulas National Marine Park, Playa Grande is a major nesting site for leatherback turtles and in Tamarindo you might choose to book a half day tour to see the turtles and visit the national park. Alternatively, head to Playa Langosta. There is a jungle walk to the beach and it’s a little bit quieter than Playa Tamarindo, especially if you are an experienced surfer looking for a wave in a quieter spot.

Crocodile Safari enroute to Manuel Antonio

From Tamarindo you will journey to Manuel Antonio, stopping enroute at the Tarcoles River. There you will enjoy a jungle crocodile safari and get the chance to get up close to an American Crocodile. In addition to smiling at a Costa Rican apex predator, you may also spot exotic birds, iguanas, lizards, snakes, raccoons, monkeys and anteaters who also call the Tarcoles River their home. Your tour will end in Manuel Antonio, home to Manuel Antonio National Park, one of the most popular national parks in Costa Rica.
