  Tamarindo Beach
by Paul2001

Okay some people might think that this beach as become a bit too commercial but if you are traveling with your family or just want to go for a dip in the sea, then go to Tamarindo Beach. This is suppose to be a great surfers beach, though the surf was not that good when I was there, and there is a serious surfers subculture there. For me this gave Tamarindo a pleasant atmosphere.
There are plenty of good hotels to stay at that will accommodate all budgets. It is also close enough to Costa Rica's wildlife for day visits. This includes trips to a nearby spot where you can see sea turtles lay eggs.
Finally Tamarindo has become very popular so those who are seeking a more secluded place to chill for a few days might want to think about going further down the coast. Costa Rica's Pacific coast still has many undeveloped beaches for you to explore.

Directions: Westernmost point of the Nicoya Peninsula
