In order to simplify your trip planning, we can book your tours, activities, services, and other needs for you. We have hand-chosen providers who we believe meet the highest standards of excellence in their particular activities or services. Please take a moment to browse through our guide below, which is full of many fun and relaxing activities and services. (Where noted, activities do sell out, so we advise booking prior to arrival).

The Tamarindo cuisine is as wonderful and varied as the mix of locals living here. Your dining experience therefore can be tailor made for you. We can arrange for private chefs (on a one-time or daily basis), specialty meals to be delivered to your door, or just point you in the right direction according to your tastes.
We are also happy to arrange all your transportation needs, including car rentals and airport shuttles (private or group) to / from any of the three airports (Liberia International, Tamarindo Airport or and San Jose International).
Let us know how we can be of service to you.
