For our last day in Costa Rica, we went for a day to Tamarindo beach.
This is a vibrant fun beach to visit and spend the day at, many tourists, restaurants, coffee shops and bars.
We also took a boat ride for 2 hours to the mangroves in the Estero Tamarindo River.
Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. It’s known for beaches with strong surf, like Playa Tamarindo and Playa Langosta. To the north, Playa Grande beach is a major nesting site for huge leatherback turtles, and forms part of Las Baulas National Marine Park. The mangrove-lined estuary of Tamarindo Wildlife Refuge protects animals such as howler monkeys and crocodiles.
