The Sno Shack offers ice cream ,smoothies and other treats but we decided to order the shaved ices. The shaved ice is offered in a small ($4) or large ($5). We decided to go big. The ices are placed in large plastic dishes. There are a few tables in the back. The area is shaded. They only take cash.

This place is best known for their shaved ice - and there's no doubt about it, those huge piles of sweet ice definitely look refreshing. But we popped in here for ginger lemonades, which were awesomely refreshing in Tamarindo's 100-degree heat. Friendly staff and good service. Love this spot!

Nothing beats the Sno Shack's Mint-Lime Shaved ice on a hot tropical day and the owner grave us some great tips for Tamarindo.

Chill little spot with delicious fresh syrups for shaved ice. The waitress noticed my purple- pink ombre hair and gave me a color changing spoon that matched!!!!
