old ca surfer- needs a place to stay in Tamarindo

The old guy can't wait to get into some warm water!

We are also bringing along our 30 year old daughter, 25 year old son and our 1 year old grandson (4 adults, 1 child). I guess we have been a little "laid back" about making reservations and have not reserved a hotel or condo (4/29- 5/6). Any suggestions for a great last minute place to stay in Tamarindo or near by? Also surf adventure guide? Where to eat? Should we rent a car?

Many good choices in Tamarindo for all budgets, check out this small hotel,

http://www.hotelarcoiris.com/. You don't really need a car, but always nice to have to take in sites and other nearby surf spots. Check all the recommended restaurants recommended on TA for best options. Richard(ex SoCal Dr. owner of Arco Iris)can recommend surf guide for you.

I recommed you the Sunrise Condomimiums they have one of the best locations in Tamarindo, the beach is just acroos the street, and walking distance to supermarkets, drugstores, restaurants, surf shops, nightclubs.

pretty much everything.

If you want to watch videos of the condos go here:

Pura Vida!

We hope you will enjoy your trip.

7-Days, $700 for luxury, two-bedroom condo/hotel almost on the beach. Ask manager if he'll extend this deal:

tripalertz.com/deals/detail/346-Mango-Center…

Ask: Julius at mangorentals@gmail.com

A little less money... look at this deal

kgbdeals.com/national/deals/95739/40-discoun…

Old surfer... hmmm! drop by and say hello to Robert August (two time-world champion surfer from the 60's) still shapes boards at the Witch's Rock Surf Camp.

Lots of very capable surf guides and great restaurants in town!

I agree with Tamarindobeachvideo. The Sunrise condos are large and well suited for families. We stayed in Condo #38 in February and loved it. Last year we stayed at the diria maltapolo, which was nice, but further from the beach. We liked the Sunrise much better, since it was steps from the beach and had a grocery store across the street. The unit we stayed in was more updated too.

since its not high season, you likely will find many, many vacancies and can get good deals. We ate at Nogios (likely misspelled) and was good. Garden grill in playa grande was excellent.

Best of luck and have a great trip!!
