Summary

Just like the tangy fruit after which the beach is named, Tamarindo is a delight for the senses. A former sleepy fishing village, Tamarindo quickly became the vacation hotspot that put Costa Rica on the map. Nowadays, surfers, thrill seekers, nature lovers, partiers, and foodies all come together in this tropical paradise that is the epitome of “pura vida” culture.
Selina the muse salutes the Guanacasteco in all of us and is here to add fun to the equation. With a room repertoire that goes from dorms to suites, the traveler tribe will find an option for each personality and life stage. Time to gather and celebrate life in this new hostel concept that elevates the senses and connects us all.

As the premier destination in Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, Tamarindo has absolutely everything you could possibly imagine. Beautiful beaches and biodiversity share the town with chic cafés, amazing restaurants, charming boutiques, and a thriving nightlife. As for daily activities, you won’t have time to do them all: surfing, water sports, fishing, horseback riding, scuba diving, and snorkeling are just a few of the options. Eco-buffs should not miss the Tamarindo Wildlife Refuge, where you can take a canoe tour around this protected area of glorious forestation.

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


SURF CONDITIONS

Costa Rica is known for its miles of white sandy beaches, monkeys swinging in the trees that line the sand and endless waves that begged to be ridden. With the name Costa Rica meaning the “rich coast”, it certainly lives up to its name by having some of the best surfing destinations in the world. From beginner to advanced, there is a wave for everyone along one of Costa Rica’s hundreds of beaches.  Unpaved roads and hidden paradises have kept these magnificent beaches from becoming overcrowded and will have you feeling as though you are entering a secret paradise.

One of the main surf base in Costa Rica is Tamarindo. The long beautiful beach at its centre is great for learning how to surf and there are more intermediate & advanced breaks close by, the breaks in the area are some of the best in the world, as evidenced by the several international surfing competitions held here every year. The beautiful beaches are popular thanks to the consistency of the waves, and the town is a perfect jumping-off location for beach and point breaks along the coast. The calmest water for swimming can be found on the southern end of the beach while the water just off the busiest part of town is best for surfing.The nearby river mouth offers breaks that are perfect for the more experienced surfers.

Nearby spots: Playa Grande, Langosta, Avellana and Playa Negra.

Surf is best during mid-high tide.

Seasonal conditions:

SURROUNDINGS / REGION

Demarcated by Nicaragua in the North and Panama in the South, Costa Rica hugs the Caribbean Sea in the East and the Pacific Ocean in the West. A high plateau divides the American cordilleras in the centre, bordered with low coastal lands in the East and in the West. More of half of the population live in this plain, with a volcanic fertile soil. Mangroves, marshlands and sandy beaches characterize the Caribbean coast, 212 long. More cut and rocky, the Pacific coast spreads out 1 016 km, dotted by gulfs and peninsulas.

Costa Rica is home to a rich variety of plants and animals. Over 840 species of birds have been identified in Costa Rica. As is the case in much of Central America, the avian species in Costa Rica are a mix of North and South American species. The country's abundant fruit trees, many of which bear fruit year round, are hugely important to the birds, some of whom survive on diets that consist only of one or two types of fruit.

"Pura Vida" is the most recognizable phrase attached to Costa Ricans, and it reflects the inhabitant's positive view of life. Literally translated, the expression means: “pure life” and denotes a simple life, free of stress, a positive, relaxed feeling.

Formalities: For French nationals, a passport valid 6 months after your return home is compulsory, a return plane ticket as well. No visa for stays of less than a month.
The capital is San Jose.

Language: the official language is Spanish. Second lenguage: English.

Health: No vaccine is required to enter Costa Rica. Nevertheless, think about taking a treatment against malaria if you wish to hazard in the jungle.

Time differences: -7 hours in winter, -8 hours in summer.

Weather: Costa Rica is a tropical country and only has two seasons: humid and dry. The dry season usually lasts from the end of December to mid-April. The wet season lasts the rest of the year. The Caribbean coast remains humid all year long. Temperatures not change too much.

Nearby airports to Tamarindo: San José  (5hrs) and Liberia (1,5hrs). Book your Selina Surf club airport transfer.

Environment: Here, there are no hollow promises but a true political will and a life reference. Everything has been settled for more than 15 years now, for a harmonious and lasting development. Ecology in Costa Rica is a position for the whole nation.

Water/Electricity: Do not drink the tap water and bring along medicine for intestinal problems.Use an American outlet with flat connections because the electric current is 110 V.

No es la primera ves que me hospedó en este selina y como siempre lo disfruto mucho, en esta oportunidad fui con varios amigos a los cuales les había recomendado el lugar, sabía que la íbamos a pasar genial, todo el staff es super amigo y preocupados por uno, los chicos del front tienen excelente sentido del humor y nos ayudaron en todo lo que les pedimos, a LIZ y KRISTINA formidable chicas, ellas trabajan en el playground y la verdad agradezco su atención y paciencia que me tuvieron en ningún momento dejaron de ser amables y amigables conmigo. José Pablo pasó pendiente de como pasamos la noche y la tarde siguiente siempre se tomó el tiempo para llegar a saludar y eso se agradece. Soy un selina lover me encanta el concepto y su ambiente tengo la dicha de conocer varios, la semana pasada estuve en el de san José en el cual la pasé genial a la hora de dejar la habitación y hacer el check-out olvide mi cadena la cual es de un gran valor para mi, me di cuenta hasta las 12 de la noche de ese día que no la tenía ya que siempre me la quito para bañarme, contacte por todos los medios al hotel, y lograron dar con ella, esa acción valió más que el oro para mi, gracias a su gerente Jahir y a todo el staff selina san José y reservas, esto hizo que me amarrar aun más a esta excelente marca.. Keep going!!
