Just wanted to get some opinions on visiting Tamarindo. We have 2 kids, 10 and 7. We like having a town nearby for some for culture but don't like anything too rowdy or artificial. Has Tamarindo maintained it's culture and charm or is it just too busy? (My parents went there in 1976!) We usually vacation in Tulum, Mexico and stay on the beach in small, quiet hotels and eat in town but want to try something new. Is Tamarindo a fun, safe bet? My kids like adventure and beach fun. Daughter likes to surf and 7 y.o son wants to try as well. Any input before I go ahead and book for Feb/2012 would be great!
