Tamarindo, May 2019, all-inclusives? Tours?

Hello!

We're looking at going to Costa Rica next year and would prefer an all-inclusive if possible. Where would you recommend? Doesn't need to be top dollar but nice/clean and good food/beverages would be required. We've also been told about Native's Way for activities? Any input? We go to El Salvador 2x year with mission trips so are familiar with the weather. Possible activities would be ATV, snorkeling, etc. We're 62 and 61 on the trip but outdoorsy. Thanks so much.

All inclusive Occidental Playa Langosta, not 5 stars but if you are looking for not too expensive. Check Cala Luna and Capitan Suizo for more upscale

Concierge and activities I recommend Cris cris@stayintamarindo.com - She is the best

Ditto to the Occidental. There aren't many all-inclusive hotels in Tamarindo to choose from. I believe El Esplendor may be AI as well. A little further out from Tamarindo there is the Westin Conchal (pricey). You'll have no trouble finding things to do in and around Tamarindo.

There are not many all inclusive hotel options in Tamarindo. In such case Occidental Hotel is the option. But in Tamarindo there area many restaurants with pretty good flavors and budgets. Most hotels are just less than one mile from downtown.

If you are taking case of your budget you can see Tamarindo Bay Boutique Hotel, then The Coast Beachfront hotel, or you can rent a condo. ATV, Zip line, surf lessons, Catamaran, Sportfishing and much more is available in Tamarindo.

You definitely will have a great time in Tamarindo.

There are no many restaurants hotels and other services in Tamarindo, that it seems sad to eat at the same place each day. I would want to make sure food at placed you choose is very .good a varied. All inclusive makes a lot of sense in places more remote, like GW Marriot to South and Westin Playa Conchal to North, both great but very expensive.

Robert, why would eat at the same restaurant in Tamarindo each day? Hard to believe you could only a few restaurants. Have you searched the Trip Advisor restaurant list for Tamarindo?

Webtwenty - I think you misread Robert's comment and there also looks to be a typo. Pretty sure he meant "There are SO many restaurants... in Tamarindo, that it seems sad to eat at the same place each day."

He's encouraging OP to reconsider the all-inclusive in favor of enjoying more of the nearby restaurants.
