Tamarindo is a 2 mile (3.5 Km) stretch of white sand and warm blue water. Surrounded by National Parks to its north and south, and mountains with breathtaking views to its east, nature is abundant. Leatherback Turtles lay their eggs in the northern part of the bay, howler monkeys are heard and seen swinging on branches throughout Tamarindo.
Tamarindo became known as a surf town after its beach was featured in the film, “Endless Summer II”. There are good waves at the river estuary north of town and at Grande Beach across the estuary.
