Hobby, passion, beginner or advanced or just a way to relax, Tamarindo is the perfect place to go out for a surf. Although the beaches were closed for minute, they are open again and ready for you! Restrictions are in place, but for everyone who enjoys starting the day with some exercise nothing will stand in your way. Tamarindo beach, from the estuary to Capitan Suizo is open between the hours of 5am to 9:30am, better be on the Dawn patrol squad! and for others looking for a bigger thrill or wave, Playa Grande to the north or Playa Langosta To the South we’ll meet your expectations, open
from 8am to 6pm. If you are new to surfing we highly recommend booking a lesson with S.A.L.T – Surf as Life Therapy. You can contact them via their Facebook page or email below.
