The surfers’ beach town of Tamarindo, just a short hour and twenty-minute drive away, is a big contrast to the smaller and less populated town of Coco. This is a long, lighter sand beach with its gentle waves, perfect for learning to surf, is the star of this town. The large variety of shops, selling everything from surfboards and apparel to one-of-a-kind and hand-made items, as well as its’ wide variety of restaurants (inspired by the largely International community) are a reason to spend a few hours here. On the way, stop and spend some time on the lighter sand beaches of Playa Flamingo, Playa Conchal, and Brasilito.
