Activities in Tamarindo can be booked all over town. The most exciting activities are the surf lessons, pub/club-crawl, fishing trips, snorkelling trips and of course the visit to Playa Grande with its huge Leatherback Turtles. If you want to book any of these activates we suggest you ask your hostel or hotel where to book it, they may offer some cool tours themselves! But beware to check some prices and ask around because some tour agencies only want to make money. Trustworthy agencies are Hightide Aventuras, Iguanasurf, Papagayo Excursions and Xplore Costa Rica. Don’t forget to sunbathe, as this can be exhausting and fun to do on the great beach!
We made a top 5 activities in Tamarindo for you! First the visit to Playa Grande for checking out the huge Leatherback Turtles nesting or helping the new generation Leatherback Turtles reaching the sea. This is an absolute must do when you’re in Tamarindo! Second is of course without a doubt surfing. The waves in Tamarindo are perfect for beginners and pros, don’t let them wait! Third we can recommend a fishing trip on open sea and catch some diner or big sea monsters. If you don’t like fishing you probably like to watch them so on the fourth place is a snorkelling or scuba diving trip to one of the reefs near Tamarindo. Last but not least is the volcano tour where you can see the still active volcano’s near Tamarindo and the diversity of wildlife living on them.
