Our family of six (4 adult kids) are planning on renting a home in either Playa Grande or Playa Flamingo this October. We don't surf, but enjoy body boarding and plan to go on adventures most days & hanging out at the beach the other days. We understand Tamarindo is too touristy, but in this very low season, is it the only activity around? We would like a "base" that we could walk to restaurants & bars if we didn't want to cook and not too far from adventures - catamaran tours, Palo Verde tour, zip line, etc. Would Flamingo or Playa Grande be a better location?
Thanks for any help you can give us!
