My wife and I are planning our first trip to Costa Rica in April this year. We normally stay at 4/5 star all-inclusive resorts, but are looking to try something new and exciting. We are thinking about staying at the Diria in Tamarindo and dining at the local restaurants. We are planning on surfing, zip-lining, seeing the volcano and any other fun things we come across during our 7 night stay.
How big is Tamarindo?
How safe is it at night?
How is the night life?
Is Tamarindo a good first time place to visit in Costa Rica?
Is there any better all around places to stay in Tamarindo than the Diria (a nice pool is important)
Any advice would be appreciated!!!!
