Spanish Language Course Costa Rica Tamarindo
Although mainly a town with an abundance of recreation there is also ways to experience the culture and history of Costa Rica. Tamarindo’s culture is found through the cuisine and shopping. Bypassing the international restaurants can lead you to some wonderfully sampling of Costa Rican specialties.
The town also has a wide variety of shops featuring local artisans. For those wanting to learn more about the history of the area, traveling to Liberia or taking one of the daily buses to San Jose can provide you a larger selection of attractions. Liberia has a couple of museums, and the “Colonial City of Costa Rica” also pleases visitors with its beautiful white-washed architecture.
A great place to discover the cowboy culture of the country, Liberia is a short trip away. San Jose is the cultural mecca of Costa Rica. With a large number of museums and other attractions, you could spend several days steeped in the rich history of Costa Rica.
Although surfing is one of the main focuses of Tamarindo, there is an excellent variety of other activities. The surfing conditions are considered near perfect, but the water also is used for diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, swimming, jet skiing, and boogie boarding. The town is heavily involved in sport-fishing.
When you’re ready to dry off try horseback riding, zip-lining, or go explore the nearby wildlife refuge of Diria. Those wanting a slower sport can engage in a round of golf. Tamarindo is home to Hacienda Pinilla, one of the best courses in the Central American region.
When your busy day is done, there are plenty of spots to find some peace, quiet, and revel in the beautiful scenery of Tamarindo. Marino Las Baulas National Park is the perfect place to reflect, and hopefully spot one of the leatherback turtles during the summer’s nesting season.
Tamarindo is one of the most easily accessed towns north of San Jose. There are a couple options for getting into town. A domestic airport is located just outside of town with flights from San Jose.
San Jose also offers daily buses to and from the area. Liberia has an International Airport that’s a short drive or bus ride from Tamarindo.
