Now, going towards Tamarindo, which is a small town in Costa Rica was a fabulous travel. I did my research and found that there are flights, buses and private car tours, which one can take to go to Tamarindo, Costa Rica. It would take only two hours by flight, around 7-8 hours by bus and about 3-4 hours by car.
Since we wanted to take in the scenic beauty, enjoy the nature around us, but at the same time, wanted to reach the destination in the least possible time, we decided to hire a private vehicle. The drive, though long, was good since we experienced the travel through hilly roads. My son seemed to enjoy every moment of the travel. The town is small, neat and tidy and the population is not much.
Eating, drinking, looking around the place and enjoying in the beaches are the things that you must definitely do in Tamarindo. Therefore, we first booked a hotel room and then headed straight to the beach. The expansive beach, with deep blue water and white sand, stretches along as far as the eye could see. The water sports here include surfing, scuba diving, snorkelling, skiing and cruises. I did try my hand at fishing and sure enough, I caught varieties of fish. Children enjoy a lot here and I could see that my son was having a whale of a time.
We spent a long time at the beach and later in the evening, decided to explore the place. Being a small town, we could get around in town on foot. I did some jewellery shopping and purchased some skin care products for myself. I knew that the products that they sold were quite genuine and natural. After spending about 2 hours around the place, I bought some souvenirs and proceeded to our hotel room. I am fond of music and dancing and at night, I visited a great bar.
Many were doing salsa and I was amazed to find that most of the people were very good at it. The next day, as per the plan, we arranged a tour to visit the Tamarindo Wildlife National Park, which has several mangroves, other flora and animals. We were able to see the leatherback turtle, the world’s largest reptile and the tour gave me an opportunity to see the eggs that it laid. This amazing sight we saw at Parque Nacional Marino.
We spent half of our day in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. It was a fantastic experience and I would recommend anyone travelling to Costa Rica to visit this small town. This being our last visit, we were ready to head home from here!
