Things To Do

Day Tripping (personal favourite) - Hop in your car and go to a different beach each day! Pack a cooler with water/beverages/snacks, grab a towel/surf or boogie board and head to one of the beaches in the area. Find a secluded spot on a beach or rent a chair at Playa Tamarindo. This is a great way to explore and discover the beauty of Costa Rica. Download the Waze App to help with maps and location.
