Surfing remains the main reason to take a trip to Tamarindo, as the beachside town is mostly known for its excellent waves. Different areas of the town's main beach offer breaks of varying difficulty, making a Tamarindo vacation suitable for surfers of all levels, from beginner to expert. Fishing is another popular thing to do in Tamarindo--the town makes the most of its location near a saltwater estuary. As you plan your Tamarindo holiday, keep in mind that conditions for big-wave surfing are at their best in November and December.
