A week in Tamarindo Costa Rica

A week in Tamarindo Costa Rica

Many of our guests visit us and ask us what can we do for a week in Tamarindo Costa Rica? Tamarindo Costa Rica is one of the most popular towns on the Northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica with great weather year round. Even during the “rainy season” most days start off sunny and end with an afternoon or evening rain storm. Come down anytime of the year and enjoy a great week in Tamarindo Costa Rica. 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

Sailing
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.

Week in Tamarindo Sailing excursion

 

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!

Canopy/Zip-lining
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!

Sportfishing
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.

Great Surfing all around Tamarindo

Wildlife tour
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.

Day 6

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.

Day 7

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!

RPM Vacation Rentals offers over 150 vacation rentals to make your week in Tamarindo Costa Rica great. Our staff can help you plan everything including private chefs, restaurant recommendations, and tours.

The house was awesome with a great view. Lots of room with a great pool. Only down side it how far up the hill it is. Not an easy walk, but if you have a rental car it is no problem.

The home was clean and well stocked. Only issue was a plumbing "fix" in the kitchen that after it was fixed, leaked water through the kitchen and living room. Not a big deal but likely should have tested the "fix" before the repair person left.

Great place to stay!
