ABOUT TAMARINDO

Tamarindo is a popular surf spot in the North West of Costa Rica. With decent swell and several surf breaks to choose from, surfers of all descriptions descend on this bustling surf community. Consistent offshore winds and swells mean great surf conditions throughout the year. The beach in Tamarindo’s heart offers great surf conditions for beginners to learn to surf, while the river mouth peak of Estero’s and the reef breaks like Pico Pequeño, Diria and Henry’s attract advanced surfers when the swell is on.
