Pura Vida provides a variety of services including vacation rentals, golf cart rentals, and concierge. They probably have other services as well, but these are the ones we used.
I can’t say enough about how helpful and gracious Melissa was in helping us make our stay in Tamarindo so pleasant. She was super friendly with helpful options each time we spoke/texted with her. Thanks Melissa for helping us create our Tamarindo experience!
The unit we rented (301 … around from Playa Langosta beach) might have the best view in Tamarindo. I just can’t imagine anything better. Each morning right out of our bedroom we had full views of ocean waves crashing onto rocks and a small beach. Stairs from the main floor led to an open patio with incredible views of the stars, the vast Pacific, and amazing sunsets. Low tide revealed lava tidal pools we explored where we found live coral, crabs and small iridescent blue fish. Water streamed in and out between the lava rocks creating natural aquariums all over. Beautifully decorated and architected, multiple patios and seating areas, great kitchen, you cannot go wrong with this place. Highly recommended.
We rented a 6-seater golf cart for our family of 5. These golf carts are clean, new, rugged and sturdy. Perfect for our needs as we opted to not rent a car at the airport. Instead we arranged (through Melissa) airport transfers to Tamarindo for $85 each way, and then used the golf cart all over town. It’s seriously the best way to see the town and get around. Easy to park and hassle free. Even if you have a family of 4, I would recommend the 6-seater. Several times we weren’t full and offered rides to others walking (which were all graciously accepted). We met several interesting tourists, ex-pats, and Costa Ricans, and the others that didn’t speak English were so happy to have a free ride. It sorts of connects you in a different way with the community.
Ask for Melissa, and you will be living the Pura Vida! I recommend booking with them directly as you (and they) can avoid the fees charged by the big VRBO type websites. You get a better deal, and it’s completely safe.
