This is part 1 of the ‘Make Tamarindo Costa, Rica Your Next Vacation’ series by WhatHappensInTamarindo.
5 Reasons Why Tamarindo Is The Answer.
1) Beautiful Sand & Water
‘A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words’
2) Surfs Up!
CNN Travel came out with an article titled, ‘World’s 50 Best Surf Spots’. On that list Tamarindo ranked as number #27 in the world!
Take a look for yourself:
3) Great Food
There’s a reason they call this place Tamagringo. With the boost of tourism, tourists are everywhere. This has led to dining of all sorts. You can get anything you have a craving for.
If you’re looking for the local stuff, here’s a list of what you should be trying:
- Gallo Pinto
- Sopa Negra
4) Tons of activities for all ages.
Whether you are looking for a relaxing time at the beach or an adventure, Tamarindo can provide.
Here’s a list of activities that I wouldn’t miss:
- Monkey Park (if you stay at Sunrise you might see them every morning on the way to the beach!)
- Beaches: Tamarindo Beach, Playa Flamingo, Playa Conchal, and many more.
- Windsurfing / Kitesurfing
- Scuba / Snorkel
- Boat Tours (Check out the Estuary)
- Horseback Riding
5) ¡Pura Vida!
(pronounced poo-rah vee-dah)
If I had to pick the best thing about Tamarindo (and Costa Rica in general), this would be it.
Pura Vida translates directly as: ‘Pure Life’.
But here it means much more than that. It means everything from ‘You’re Welcome’ to ‘Right on!’. It encompasses everything that Costa Rica is. Keep a relaxed outlook on life and things will go smoothly. And even if they don’t, they will soon.
I could continue to explain it to you, but best if you just come and check it out yourself.
