The surf around Tamarindo doesn’t seem to take a rest, with waves on a daily basis. This area of Costa Rica, thanks to its westward projection, stays very consistent with an abundance of waves. With such a large swell window, Tamarindo receives a ton of surf at the height of the season from April to November from low pressure systems in the South Pacific. Starting in December northwest swells will begin to make their appearance, continuing through March, thus keeping the coastline very much alive all year long. There is an assortment of breaks in the Tamarindo area, from fun beachbreaks to some decent reef set-ups, and many within walking distance of the accommodations. Some of the better known spots are Playa Grande, Playa Negra, Witches Rock and Ollie’s Point.

Costa Rica is a small country located in Central America and one of the trendiest holiday and adventure-travel destinations in Latin America - One of Costa Rica’s main sources of income is tourism. Costa Rica is also a democratic and peaceful country, and was the first in the world to constitutionally abolish its army back in 1949.
Costa Rica is located on the Central American isthmus, 10° North of the equator. Bathed by the Caribbean Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west, the country extend on an narrow stretch of land from Panama in the south to Nicaragua in the north. The highest point in the country is Cerro Chirripó, soaring at 3,820 metres (12,532 ft) and the fifth highest peak in Central America. The country is ranked 5th in the world and 1st among American countries in terms of Environmental Performance. Although the country is small, it shelters 6% of the existing biodiversity in the entire world and 25 % of the country is under natural conservation protection (National Parks and Nature Preserves).
Tamarindo is located on the northern Pacific coastline of Costa Rica in the Guanacaste Province and is about 195 miles (290 km.) northwest of the capital San Jose. It sits in a bay and is characterized by a very long sandy beach and mountains to the east. This quaint little beach town is bordered to the north by Playa Grande and to the south by Langosta, two protected nesting areas where giant leatherback turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. Tamarindo is seperated from Playa Grande by the inlet of Tamarindo Wildlife Refuge.
Costa Rica’s proximity to the equator means that it is generally hot and humid, with tropical conditions throughout the year. And while Tamarindo will be influenced by a dry season from November to April, the wet season from May to October is quite mild as Guanacaste is considered the driest region in the country.
