Romantic vacation Tamarindo Costa Rica

Couples Vacation to Tamarindo Costa Rica

Let’s be honest, deciding to vacation in Costa Rica was no difficult task. The Pura Vida culture had you at first glance. It’s no wonder why it was voted the most sustainably happy country in the world. You can’t wait to finally visit the beaches that you’d only seen on postcards. To bathe in the breathtaking tidepools. And to watch the sunset with your significant other over drinks,  while the sky erupts into a cloud of red and yellow.

Romantic vacation Tamarindo Costa Rica
Couples enjoying the sunset

But as a couple, where is the best place in Costa Rica to vacation? While Puerto Viejo, Monteverde, and Jaco are all great vacation spots; Tamarindo, Guanacaste takes the cake.

Puerto viejo offers palm trees and surfing. Monteverde’s known for its wildlife and canopy tours. Jaco is famous for its beaches and nightlife…but Tamarindo has it all. From surf camps to zipline tours to clubs and bars, there is truly no better place to enjoy time with your loved one.


Tamarindo is as practical as it is inviting. Instead of having to fly into the capital San Jose, you can fly into the recently remodeled Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport, which is only a 45 minute paved (which can be a rarity) drive away! Furthermore, as it is located on the pacific coast at about 10 degrees above the equator, we are sheltered from hurricanes, which form at higher latitudes, where the coriolis force is stronger and on the caribbean side.  


As we near the end of rainy season, there has never been a more ideal time to vacation. The fields are still green, the crowds are minimal, and the sunny skies constant.


The final step to planning a romantic getaway in Costa Rica, is choosing the perfect place to stay. We offer a wide selection of cottages, condos and suites, both long-term and short-term so that you can hand pick your vacation home to fulfill your desires. Head here for easy booking.
