TRAVEL GUIDE: Our Trip to Tamarindo, Costa Rica

Part 1 Podcast Episode:

Part 2 Podcast Episode:

This is my first ever Travel Guide themed podcast episode, and this won’t be your typical generic travel guide. In this episode I’ll share all the details about what we actually did on our most recent trip to Tamarindo, Costa Rica.

In November 2023 our family traveled to Tamarindo in Costa Rica for a week. It was my 3rd time visiting Costa Rica, and my 2nd time going to Tamarindo specifically.

After moving across the world from Australia to the Midwest in the US, we were craving some break time! My husband was especially itching to get back into the ocean for some surfing. So we left the country and spend the week relaxing, dining out with friends, and enjoying being by the ocean again.

Below in this blog post I’ve included my basic notes and links related to what we did, where we stayed, where we ate, and some activities available to you in Tamarindo. To get the full story click the play button at the top of this blog post and listen to the Podcast episode!
