8 Reasons to Plan a Last-Minute Tamarindo Vacation

best time to travel to Costa Rica by season

Pack your bags and get ready to go! It’s time for sun and fun, for footloose and fancy-free. That’s right: It’s time for a last-minute Tamarindo vacation. 

From epic surf and long walks on the beach, to private ocean-view infinity pools and last-minute deals on condos, small villas, and large homes, we offer up our expertise, planning, and select vacation home – everything you need to get planned, get going, and get here. ASAP. Whether that P stand for tomorrow or next week. Welcome to your next Tamarindo vacation!

Reason #1: Sun, Sand & Surf

It’s the tropics and the weather is fine! The sun is shining (most of the day, at least!), the sand is warm, and the surf is excellent. The truth is, it’s always a good time to plan a Tamarindo vacation. So, why wait?

Reason #2: Las Mareas Villa 1

4 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms | Sleeps 12

Las Mareas Villa 1 Tamarindo vacation rental

Did you know that last-minute vacations come with last-minute vacation deals? Take Las Mareas Villa 1, one of six luxury Tamarindo vacation rentals perched above downtown, the estuary, and Pangas Restaurant.

This little (ok, rather large!) slice of privacy overlooks the looping curve of Las Baulas estuary, right where it meets sweeping Pacific Ocean views. So, grab a cup of local coffee and relax on the terrace. Count the white caps while you drink in spectacular ocean views. Stretch out on a daybed or prep a meal at the gourmet kitchen or outdoor barbecue. And, whenever and for however long you want, cool off in your private infinity-edge pool. Coastline views, included!

Reason #3: Outdoor Pursuits

Sure, you want to get out of the house, but you what you really want is to get out – as in, outside and into the great outdoors. And a Tamarindo vacation promises just that: 

Water Adventures: From sportfishing and surf lessons to snorkeling and kayaking, Tamarindo promises a bevy of on-water diversions. So, whether you’re a surfer hunting down the perfect break, a wildlife aficionado in search of mangrove mammals, or an angler seeking your next record catch, Tamarindo promises both the opportunity to get outside and do your favorite things. 

Land Adventures: While you would be forgiven for thinking that Tamarindo is all about the water, you’d also be wrong. Our sandy little surf town delivers the landlubber goods, in the form on horseback riding and hiking, ATV rides and zip line canopy tours, mountain biking and turtle tours. In other words, all the out-in-the-fresh-air, into-the-sun adventures that keep your feet on the ground (and your soles enviably worn). 

Full-Day Tours: Want to pack some serious punch into your Tamarindo vacation? Then, welcome to the world of all-day tours, which take you to dry forest, up active volcanoes, into rivers and hot springs, and even squelching through mineral muds. It’s wild, it’s wonderful, and it’s the essence of not only Tamarindo, but Costa Rica. It’s why you’re here!
