1. Take a Tamarindo Sunset Catamaran and Sail to the Sunset
Tamarindo Sunsets are really breathtaking, they are really quite a thing! Like taken from a painting! And what is a better way to enjoy these than sailing and having fun?
Since this is a windy time, sailing is perfection, the Sunset Catamaran will take you with mostly perfect winds, calm seas, and beautiful scenery Lunch and open bar provided, you stop in front of a private beach and you can take a nice refreshing bath! And even go snorkeling or paddle board!
Get your friends and/or family and go and sailing off into the sunset. Leave from Tamarindo Beach around noon and be back just after sunset. It will be a day to remember!!
It is by far one of my favorite tours to do! It is very complete, so you will be experiencing 8 activities in one visit.
El Rincon de la Vieja National Park is named after its active volcano which is passing through a period of calm. The park protects more than 177 sq. kilometers of mostly tropical dry forest where you can find a variety of natural miracles that you can experience all in one day tour!
They will pick you up at your hotel, maybe even stop for breakfast if you would like to.
As soon you get to the park you start your adventure doing a 30 min or so horseback riding!! The horses are really calm and anyone can do the horse ride even though they might not be experienced, the horses will lead you to the Colorado River where some fun in the water awaits for you!
When you get to the Colorado River they will be waiting for you to go on the rapids! It is a fun ride and it isn’t too extreme so again it is perfect to enjoy with the whole family. The river is absolutely gorgeous, transparent and all around it, you see huge rock formations that just makes it look even more magical. After that, you are ready for the zip line!! You will be riding 8 Ziplines and while you are there you can see all the magnificent park views and the Colorado River…
After the zip line there is an activity that I personally found very challenging, so if you are up for challenges…You go and do it! It is the rock climbing and believe me, it isn’t as easy as it seems, but after all, there comes a reward, the most delicious Costa Rican typical lunch, and the spa!! Ohh the spa! Enjoy the sauna followed by the mud baths, which are really good for your skin! And then take a dip in the cold refreshing Colorado river to take it off! In days like these were is sooo hot nothing like a cold rover bath to refresh!
End your day by taking a dip in the Rincon de la Vieja hot springs where you will be able to unwind and relax after a full day of adventure.
After all this, you are ready to dance and enjoy all that Tamarindo nights have to offer!!
3. A beautiful day of snorkeling on the islands off Tamarindo
Hot days like these ones deserve to be spent all day in the water! Spend your day snorkeling, this trip will take you to one of Costa Rica’s best snorkel spots with some of the world’s finest volcanic rock formations, which is very rich in marine life. You’ll be going to Catalina’s island where will be seeing tons of fish, octopus, beautiful manta rays, butterfly fish, angelfish, and turtles.

This tour will take you down this incredible river for four hours, passing through sections which are dominated by class III-IV white-water rapids.
The most fun thing is plunging down cataracts! You will be sprayed with water, make sure to hold on tightly to your paddle!

Fiestas In Villareal
These ones are more typical Costa Rica parties, Most celebrations have a religious background while others are a testimony of national pride and folklore. No matter how solemn the event is, every celebration is a welcome opportunity for a party with native food, drinks and dancing to loud Latin music.
And of course the bulls! Costa Rican bullfighting does not aim to kill the bull, but only to dodge it and Participants enter the ring only to run from the animal.
It is a very typical experience that you should live at least once!
They are held in Villareal in December and March so make sure you don’t miss them!
