There’s nothing like a good sunset sail to get some snorkeling in, see the ocean, and catch a few rays. But after going on one too many of these sunset cruises out of Tamarindo, I started to recognize a pattern of some of the characters that frequent the high seas off of Tamarindo.
1. The obsessive instagrammer
You’re the only one to miss the green flash on the way back because you were busy deciding if X-Pro II or Valencia made your butt look better. Put down the selfie stick!
2. The drunk
Yes, we all know this cruise was $85 and you are for sure gonna get your money’s worth in guaro shots and “magic” punch, but nothing ruins a sunset cruise or the chance of seeing dolphins like puke trails over the bow.
3. The German
If you’re name is not Michael Phelps, you should NOT be in a Speedo. End. of. story.
4. The lobster
Who told you this would be a good idea? You got burned on the FIRST DAY of your vacation, yet here you are, out in the sun AGAIN with your burned skin as a reminder to the entire boat that you are still not a functioning adult yet.
5. The “need to get a room” honeymoon couple
The tour company promised this cruise would take you to a private beach. While technically that is true, this “private” beach is currently being shared by 80 other people so PLEASE for the sake of the children keep it PG-13!
