Tamarindo, Costa Rica

After crossing the boarder we headed straight to Tamarindo. We thought we would try another place in our Rough Guide Book, which only lasted one night. We moved to Hotel Tropicana the next morning. For $40 a night we had a huge swimming pool, breakfast and a hot shower not to mention the beach was right across the street.

This little guy was on the walkway up to our hotel room.

We spent 2 days and 3 nights in Tamarindo. The first day we spent the morning shopping and setting up adventures for the next few days. Later that afternoon we met up we Greg and went on a catamaran sunset/snorkeling cruise (Marlin Del Ray). The Marlin Del Ray tours include snorkeling, kayaking, diving, fishing or just plain relaxing with an open bar and ample snacks. We had a great time and met some fun east coasters who we ended up having dinner and partying with later that night. We also had the best coconut drinks on the cruise.

Good people and good times.

The second day was just as fun as the first... we surfed. We rented our boards from Blue Trailz and couldn't have been more pleased. Tamarindo was the last beach destination for us and as it always has been it was tough to leave. I would come back in a minute to explore the beaches to the North and South.
