If you are looking for a quiet place that is less touristy, but close enough to any and all amenities you might desire, look no further than this amazing condo. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we plan on coming back here with our children.
Highlights: a five minute walk to two seperate beaches, one of which has very gentle waves, perfect for families
-An AMAZING guide who can do kayak tours, snorkeling, and fishing expeditions lives between those two beaches and is very affordable and a great guy!
-Within close driving distance (15-30 minutes) of some larger towns if you want to explore restaraunts, take surfing lessons, go for a sunset cruise etc.
-The condo itself has everything you could ever need, we cooked a couple nights, and there is an American style grocery fairly close in Tamarindo.
-Great hiking very close, and plenty of day trips to choose from
-Beautiful private pool within complex to chill and read a book/drink a cocktail
Consider going at the end of the rainy season when we did-it was lush, but really only rained a bit in the afternoons, and there were hardly any tourists. I can't imagine going any other time! We had the beach completely to ourselves. You will LOVE staying at this condo, the owners have thought of everything!
