You can’t come to Tamarindo and not spend some time on a board, as Playa Tamarindo has a wave for everyone. Here you’ll find surf shops aplenty, with lessons, rentals, clothing, gear and more. Rent a board by the hour (or two), the day or a week. Take a lesson. Or not. Whatever you decide, you’ll have fun playing in the surf and can revel in the fact that the water’s warm (no wetsuit needed), the bottom’s sandy (you can surf barefoot) and the waves are plentiful. It doesn’t get much better than this. As they say in Costa Rica, Pura Vida!
