Take an additional 10% off Low season rates if you visit us by November 15, 2015.
Day 1 – Plan your flight into Liberia International Airport so you are only a little over an hour a way from Tamarindo. Have one of our private taxi’s pick you up and drive you to your comfortable condo or private home with a pool right in Tamarindo or nearby Playa Langosta. Get yourself unpacked and enjoy a sunset walk on the beach. Enjoy a quick dinner at a nearby restaurant or stop by Auto Mercado on your way in to pick up some groceries and a quick meal to cook.
Day 2 – Wake up and listen…Most likely all you will hear is nature and very little human noise. You might hear howler monkeys, parrots, and the waves crashing on the beach. After a leisurely morning, take a walk around town and on the beach. Tamarindo is easy to walk and there are many shops and restaurants to visit for a gift or a nice cocktail. If you are looking for a little more activity, stop by a local surf shop and rent a surfboard and sign up for surf lessons. RPM can also set you with private surf lessons for the whole family with great instructors.
Day 3-5 – Take some great tours that are perfect for you and your family for taking pictures and making all your friends back home jealous as you post a vacation of a lifetime on Instagram.
Tour Options and packages
Charter a private sailing yacht with Serendipity charters. Serendipity is a 50ft sailing yacht that will pick you up and take you sailing for the afternoon, stopping to do some snorkeling and enjoy a great meal. Sail back during sunset. For groups up to 12 people, this is a great option for a private experience with your family and friends.
Similar to Serendipity, hop on one of the local catamaran tours. These catamarans are a great option for you to experience Tamarindo bay and some hidden bays for snorkeling. You’ll also get to make great friendships with the others on the boat often resulting in dancing on the way back during sunset!
A week in Tamarindo Costa Rica is not complete without a zip-lining experience through the Guanacaste forrests. Depending on the season of your visit, you will be zipping through a green jungle canopy or through a dry forrest with incredible views. Pura Adventura will pick you up at your luxury house or condo and take you to their farm where you will drive up a mountainside and zip down 13 zips!
Tamarindo offers some incredible sport-fishing in the area with guests frequently reeling in Dorado, Marlin, and Sailfish. Your captain will meet you on the beach in the morning and take you out for a half day, 3/4 day, or full day. Come back with the fresh catch of the day and cook it at home or have many of the great restaurants prepare it for you. We recommend taking it to Noguis or Seasons restaurant.
Surf lessons / Surf Trip
Originally a little surfing village, Tamarindo holds onto its roots with some great surf shops that offer excellent surfing lessons and trips to world famous Witches Rock and Ollie’s Point. Surf the same spots made famous from the movie the Endless Summer. One of the stars of the movie, Robert August, makes Tamarindo his home throughout the year.
Have one of our private drivers and tour guides pick you at your property and take you to Palo Verde where you will see all sorts of birds, giant iguanas, crocodiles, and more times than not a white face monkey will want to join your tour and hang out on the covered boat with you.
Relax and reflect on an incredible couple of days and maybe order up a second round of sailing, zip-lining, or just relaxing on the beach. Continue to keep your friends jealous with an incredible sunset family photo session with Tamarindo Family Photos. Enjoy a final night with a great meal at your favorite restaurant such as Seasons, Patagonia, or Surf Shack Burgers and Wings and then enjoy music at one of the local nightclubs like Sharky’s or beach bars.
It’s really quite simple, ask one of our great concierges to call your boss explaining you have come down with a strange tropical virus and will have to stay for another week!

Want to explore Costa Rica with kids? You’re in luck because I know what the best activities are in town that the whole family can enjoy.
If you want to spend an afternoon on a boat. Hop on the Marlin del Rey, a catamaran that can fit about 80 people. You will sail around to a small beach where you can snorkel and swim around in the water. Then they will prepare a late lunch for you. Afterwards you will sail back to Tamarindo as the sun sets. It is very fun and kids really enjoy it. One of my favorite parts is when the boat is anchored you can jump off the side of the boat.
It’s so much fun! I would recommend this tour which goes from about 12:30 to sunset.
Another fun activity to do with kids is zip lining. Pura Aventura is a great place to do that. If you are a kid, you go with a guide who are great. You are defiantly safe on this tour. If you go don’t forget to check out the view it’s amazing. If you look carefully you might be able to see the ocean. I love everything about this tour, the thrill of flying down the zip line is awesome, for me it is probably my favorite part. It’s so fun and something everyone in the family can enjoy.
Don’t forget to stop by Bolas Locas, Tamarindo’ s own mini golf. You can sit back as you kids play or join them in the game. There are 18 holes on this course and each one is funnier than the last so have fun and let the games begin! Don’t forget your friends it’s the best when you have someone to laugh with. (they also have really good homemade ice cream)Have fun!
Stop by the RPM office to find out more information and book your tours on these fun filled activities.
Surfing Adventures in Tamarindo & Langosta
Advice for kids from a 10 year old perspective
If you’re coming down to Costa Rica and you want to learn how to surf then this will help you learn how to complete that goal. You can rent boards in many different locations in Tamarindo, such as Witch’s Rock surf camp, Iguana surf club, Kelly’s surf shop and many more. At these places you can get a lesson as well and they will help you learn to surf. The waves in Tamarindo are great for learning almost every day.
Playa Langosta has a much more challenging wave and a really strong current so I would only recommend this beach if you have surfed before and know how to surf the waves that you would see in Langosta. If you want to go on a surf trip anywhere along the beautiful coast of Costa Rica you should go to Witch’s Rock surf camp and they will have trips that you can go on and surf wherever you want in Guanacaste Costa Rica. This is where many surfing dreams can come true so I hope that you will complete yours. I hope that this information will help you to learn to surf and have the best time learning.
About the Author: Hello my name is Charlie and I am 10 years old. I love to surf and this is where I learned it is a lot of fun there has been some challenges the past 4 years but it has been a dream and I hope you enjoy your surfing experience in Tamarindo Costa Rica.

“Family Fun Spring Break
Review Date: 03-18-2013
My husband and I took 4 teenagers (my 3 and a friend) to CR for Spring Break and they ALL had a great time. The condo was very clean and very nice. Our kids loved having a private hot tub to relax in at night. We had wireless internet and cable tv so everyone could unwind after a long day out. A small grocery store had the necessities and Something was 2 minutes Become away, so we had breakfast in every morning! This condo is located in a small upscale area 2 km from Tamarindo, which was a plus for us – close enough to take a quick taxi but too far for our teenagers to walk at night, which kept us from any partying problems or late night bar/band noises. RPM’s Lola helped us tremendously in booking fun activities. We rented a private sail boat ( I HIGHLY recommend) on her suggestion. She was very helpful in setting up any trip we wanted and was a pleasure to know. This condo was also just minutes from our favorite beach, so we could go out exploring and still come back and enjoy plenty of sun time. We did not have any problems, but I am sure they would have been addressed quickly, as RPM and Rica the property both Ecological have maintenance and were quick to respond to anything we wanted. A surprise was how expensive the food was in CR, which made staying together in the condo a big added bonus, as we had a full kitchen and kept ice cream wholesale jerseys and snacks and drinks stocked Rainwater instead of having to get them from the hotel or Brandow room service. We LOVED the Langosta Beach club for dinner, which was a short walk from the condo. I would stay at an RPM property again with confidence and highly recommend them – we got what they promised. I appreciate all the details they handled for us!!”
“Great location and Place!!
March 20, 2013
A group of my friends stayed in the house at the end of February. It was a great house for a group of people. The location was great. It was right on wholesale MLB jerseys the beach and just a few steps to the first restaurant on the beach. With many more places just steps away. We made many walks up and down the beach to the bars and restaurants. The pool/patio area was awesome. You could sit and enjoy pool time and also watch the surfers in the ocean. The staff was great and very helpful! I would love to stay at this place again!!”
