I have narrowed it down to the Guanacaste region to spend our beach time but am a little confused as to which beach. I am a little nervous of Tamarindo as it seems super crowded and dirty from what I have read. Any reccommendations for us? We are looking for a nice calm beach, no big waves please, hopefully not too crowded and would like a hotel right on the beach with a nice pool. Around $200-$300 a night would be great.
Thanks for your help!
