To be sure, the Tamarindo Bay has lots to offer everyone. There are miles of sandy beaches and crystal clear waters that can accommodate a wide range of swimming, diving and even surfing and sailing activities.

When all's said and done, one of the main attractions at Tamarindo beaches is warm water surfing. There are beaches suitable for all skill levels of this activity that is exciting for all the family, and especially the young or the young at heart. The waves are perfect for surfing from sunrise to sunset if you've a mind to

In fact, surfing here is so great the beaches were featured in the movie Endless Summer II. In addition there is even a surfer's camp here called Witches Rock which is very popular with young people of all ages. If you want to make surfing the focus of your vacation in Costa Rica, this is the ideal spot for you. For some, hotels are not the ideal solution as far as vacation accommodation is concerned.
