This Guanacaste beach town lies at the heart of Costa Rica’s Gold Coast Beaches. Famous for its unparalleled surf, Tamarindo has grown into a miniature metropolis – a thriving and culturally diverse community known for year-round warm weather and constant adventure and outdoor activities.
Tamarindo attracts thousands of visitors each year – a former fishing community transformed into a vibrant playground for surfers, beach goers, nature lovers and adrenaline junkies. This Pacific town is the ideal combination of city meets nature – catering to anyone who craves an authentic Costa Rican jungle and beach experience, with the comfort of knowing modern amenities can be found just around the corner.
Over the years, Tamarindo has become an inviting destination filled with shops, restaurants and nightlife. It’s no surprise that an abundance of wellness, nature, beauty and organic living has dubbed the Tamarindo area a Blue Zone – where life expectancy is among the highest in the world.
On the northern end of Tamarindo Beach, Casa Alang Alang is located in the ideal spot – with scenic unobstructed views of Playa Grande and Las Baulas National Park, a nesting ground for the indigenous giant leatherback turtles. Rich in wildlife, the area is home to an abundance of exotic species such as monkeys, iguanas and tropical birds. The park is protected by law, so our residents can count on unspoiled nature.
Automercado, a USA style supermarket is at this side of town as well, so all your shopping can be done without driving into town.
