I went to return a never-used rash guard for my daughter. The clerk was extremely rude because I wanted a return versus and exchange. At one point, the manager became involved and she referred to me as a "Gringo." For a country that is so dependent on US tourism, it was offensive. Spend your hard earned money at another surf...

We booked a kayaking tour of the nearby estuary through our hotel. We do quite a bit of kayaking in florida so this experience didn't really compare. We were picked up on an ATV towing two kayaks and told to sit on the back of the ATV (I didn't feel very safe). Our tour guide was very nice and good... More

We had such a great experience with Arenas Adventures. We wanted to go on a challenging ATV ride in the Jungle. William took us on a two hour ride through the jungle that was unforgettable. We really enjoyed and appreciated him. He delivered by taking us on a challenging route that was exactly what we were hoping for. The lookout... More

Surfing has always been on my bucket list, so when we were in Tamarindo OF COURSE we wanted to give it a try. Our teacher, "Fish" (Randall), picked us up at our hotel on an ATV and zipped us to the office. In just minutes they had us back on the ATV, this time with a trailer and surfboards attached....

We took a half day snorkeling private trip at Playa Famingo with Luis and Ivan, booked through Arenas Adventures. We had the most amazing time. Luis was our guide and Ivan drove the boat. They were so professional and really went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly and that we enjoyed the trip. They took us... More

My boyfriend and I rented a scooter for 24h for 40 USD. We spent the best days of our trip visiting the beaches nearby. The staff was polite and really nice. We absolutely loved our experience.

We spent the last day of a 9 day vacation on a 4 hour snorkel tour that turned into so much more! A truly positive experience - Pura Vida!!! The previous day my family went on a private fishing trip that was awful - not only did we lose close to $800, but the disappointment was overwhelming. Bismark (the guide)... More

This was a positive experience for our family- but not an overwhelming one. We enjoyed the competent guide and appreciated his local knowledge and that he took care to ensure we had a positive experience. I could not help but feel that there are likely far better places to snorkel that this little island off of Tamarindo so I would... More

We went on the sunset ATV tour to catch the views of the sun setting over Tamarindo beach. At first, I was a little hesitant as we have never used an ATV vehicle before and I was traveling with my 8 year old daughter. The tour guide was great. Prior to starting off, he instructed all drivers on how to... More

We rented a boat and guide to take us to see the beauty of Tamarindo away from the crowds one usually finds on a four-hour cruise. Luis knew exactly where to take us in his comfortable boat with a bimini top to protect us from the hot Costa Rican sun. We snorkeled in a place filled with fish of every... More
