In addition to our excellent local surf breaks, which are easily accessible on foot and meet all skill levels, other hidden gems such as Playa Langosta, Playa Grande and Playa Negra (mostly known from the surf movie Endless Summer II) are all accessible in minutes from camp.
Tamarindo is famous for being the party capital of the Guanacaste region. In case you are in need of a major post-surfing fiesta, we can organize a shuttle that will take you there in 20 minutes so you don’t have to worry about driving after a few drinks.
In addition to the countless bars and clubs, there are plenty of other things to discover in Tamarindo. You can go snorkeling or scuba diving and explore the colorful underwater life at the nearby reefs. Take a stroll at the big Palo Verde National Park or experience the high speeds of a zipline ride above the treetops of the jungle, swim beneath waterfalls at Llanos de Cortez and if you have skills on a skateboard, drop the skate bowl at Playa Negra.
