Tamarindo is the most developed beach on the Nicoya Peninsula and one of Costa Rica's best-known surf spots. If you are looking for a vibrant night atmosphere, this is the place to be. Great restaurants where you can enjoy all kinds of different food are of the highest quality. There are many bars located on the oceanfront where you can watch the sunset while sipping a nice chilled drink with friends and family. Tamarindo offers all kinds of shops in which to buy souvenirs, clothes, towels etc… and these are located all along the town’s main street. Tamarindo is very safe given its chilled out atmosphere where most visitors are simply enjoying the surf, beach or a nice quiet lunch/dinner on the beach.
