We've been to Tamarindo a few times for dinner and are somewhat familiar with the town. We're struggling to decide between staying directly in Tamarindo or in the Langosta beach area. I know each has it's advantages/disadvantages, so I have a few specific questions that will help us decide.
1) Is it easy to get a local taxi to go FROM Langosta over TO Tamarindo? (Yes, I know it's just 1.5 miles!)
2) Is Langosta Beach itself that much nicer than Tamarindo Beach?
3) In general, are the condo properties far more upscale in Langosta? Here's the impression I'm getting: Villas Langosta=OK,La Esquina=Nicer,Courtyard Villas=Best.
Any recommendation is appreciated.
