recycleIt takes a manufacturer a fraction of a second to create a plastic bag, we use it for 20 minutes to get our products from the store to the house, then it takes over 100 years for it to disappear completely.

There are many other alternative substitutes for plastic that work great and are very accessible. Various hotels and restaurants in Tamarindo and the surrounding area, for example, have now replaced their plastic straws with paper-based straws. These might be small changes, but little by little we will have a positive impact on our beautiful beaches and towns we care about so much.
The Clean Wave, a non profit organization based in Tamarindo, has been working for quite some time to keep the beaches clean and they also take time to educate locals and volunteers on how to take care of your town.

Since many years the SURFRIDER organization does a wonderful job as well as several other groups and individuals like the ASADA Tamarindo and of course ADI Tamarindo. They all care about Tamarindo and the surrounding area.

Let’s all make the effort together to keep Tamarindo and the surrounding beaches and towns as clean, consciously healthy, and a leading example for all Guanacaste and Costa Rica!

It will be in effect by July 1st and has raised several concern and misinterpretations. In reality it is pretty simple because you can choose to pay either 15% of the gain or 2.25% from the actual sales price. You do not need to rush and update your property value at the Municipality before July 1st. PD Attorneys provided a simple explanation.

Throughout the years Tamarindo has grown to be known for its beautiful beach, world-class surf, friendly people, beautiful Condos, Homes & Hotels, and generally a fun place to live, or visit. And when describing the multiple amenities Tamarindo has to offer such as; shops, markets, banks, high speed internet, gyms, spas, tours, etc., you can’t leave out all the great places to eat there are here. I’ve always wondered how many options there really are, so I went out to see and counted them. From the entrance to Tamarindo, near the Church, all the way to Langosta I found that, including small “Sodas”, hotels with restaurants and standalone restaurants there are just over 106 establishments to pick from and among these there are 16 that are beachfront. You’ll find from local Costa Rican food to burger & taco joints, French, Italian, Oriental, Indian, Chinese, BBQ, cafe’s, seafood, pizzas, falafels, sushi, vegan friendly, steak houses and international menus, making it a wide multi-cultural selection of food to enjoy. Whether you’re looking for a delicious ceviche with a cool beer, fine cuisine or something in-between, it’s really amazing how diverse the selection is.

So, while you’re relishing in everything Tamarindo has to offer rest assured that a scrumptious meal, and of course a cocktail or two, is close by. Maybe the next time you go out to eat try something new, there are plenty of options to choose from.
