“The Tamarindo Vista Villas Hotel & Resort is more than just
surfer-friendly; it’s the board room of Costa Rica’s surf culture.”
Imagine yourself strolling down miles of pristine white sand beaches. The lush jungle foliage, palm fronds of rich tropical green, reach out to the deep blue sea and sky. You stop occasionally to collect a shell glistening in the sunlight. You glance up into the jungle to see a family of monkeys frolicking playfully from branch to branch. The sky suddenly becomes alive with a flock of Amazon parrots. Wild horses roam the beach grazing on the salt grasses.

With each step, your cares melt away in the warm tropical sun. You lose track of the date. You are lost somewhere in time, near the center of the earth, between two great continents, somewhere on the Costa Rican Pacific Coast. You have discovered a charming unspoiled place, a small piece of paradise. You have discovered Tamarindo.

Tamarindo Has It All!
As you can see from all of the activities which await you, that Tamarindo has it all. The staff at Tamarindo Vista Villas Hotel and Resort wish to extend to you our personal invitation to come down, stay with us, and be our guest.

Tamarindo is a Sportsman's and Nature Lover's Dream

The Vista Villas staff is here to help you maximize your vacation pleasure, and guide you to all there is to experience in this little tropical wonderland.

Surfing
Tamarindo, once a secret spot among the surfing elite, has become a world famous surfing destination since the filming of "Endless Summer II". Tamarindo has been blessed by consistent swells and off-shore conditions. From most rooms, surfers can watch the waves of the Tamarindo River mouth peeling. There are excellent surf breaks within at short walk/paddle of the hotel. Secure board storage is also provided for our guests. Both the Owner and Manager of the hotel are avid surfers and will help you plan your safari to the many great breaks in and around the Tamarindo area (Langosta, Playa Grande, Playa Avellanas, Playa Negra, Witches Rock & Ollie's Point, Little Hawaii). For long boarders, the hotel has built 10 foot tall closets in the Corona & Deluxe Suites to accommodate your big stick! Coming this season, we are proud to present the new the Surf Patti Surfing Information Desk. She will provide the latest surfing information and maps to the breaks as well as assist you in planning tours and surf trips.

Sports fishing
The waters off Tamarindo are renowned for their world-class sports fishing. They boast a year round season. Tamarindo waters are teeming with Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Dorado, big tuna and swordfish. Whether you charter a small "panga" for a few hours or a modern fully rigged cabin cruiser for several days, the friendly staff at Tamarindo Vista Villas will assist you in arranging the sports fishing vacation of your dreams, customized to your tastes and budget. Most of our sports fishing guests put fresh tuna or Mahi Mahi on their table every day.

Diving & Snorkeling
There are several reefs located close to Tamarindo. Local guides will take you to unspoiled diving and/or snorkeling destinations with abundant and varied fish and reef life. There are several excellent dive spots within a short boat ride from the hotel.

Golf
Golf has come to Tamarindo in a big way. There are now two eighteen hole golf courses to choose from within a 30 minute drive from the hotel. You can rent clubs at either one.

Horseback Riding
Imagine...you are with someone you love. You are riding your horses down an endless beach deserted beach. The surf gently ebbs and flows below you, reflecting the pastel splendor of the dazzling Tamarindo sunset. Once again, you reflect how wonderful it is to finally have found a place where you can relax, where you can simply be...

For those of you who would love to rise on horseback through the lush tropical jungle in search of Howler monkeys, this guided tour provided by the hotel is not to be missed! Combine the jungle and the beach and enjoy the best of both worlds.

Tamarindo Estuary
Our staff will assist you in chartering a small boat to tour the Tamarindo Estuary wildlife preserve. Here you will be treated to an unspoiled and untouched primary mangrove eco-system. You will probably see a variety of birds, monkeys, Cayman and crocodiles.

Giant Leather back Turtles
Playa Grande is the largest remaining nesting area of the giant Leather back turtle. Nesting season runs from October to February. Our staff will be happy to arrange a turtle tour with a skilled guide. The beach has been dedicated as a national wildlife preserve to allow this million year old ritual of nature to continue without the hindrance of human encroachment.
On the tour, you can observe one of the greatest spectacles of nature. It is nothing short of inspirational to watch the slow methodical dance of these gentle giants as they drag themselves up the beach with great exertion. They then proceed to dig a four foot deep hole in the sand with their fins, into which they deposit their eggs. This is a very special experience and should not be missed if you are planning to visit between these months.

Also Available
Bird watching, kayaking, nature hikes, volcano tour, shell collecting, sailboat cruises, canopy tours & ATV/quad tours.
