Locations

Within a radius of about 50 km, the tourist may visit six different places each of which have their own charm. Nature lovers will find abundant flora and fauna and Nature Parks. There are lots of leisure activities for sports lovers and last but not least gastronomy for within everybody's means.

Tambor on the Golf of Nicoya with its calm sea and its large bay is suitable for windsurfing. Here a marina and golf courses can be found.

Between Montezuma and Cabuya further south there are several small charming bays. Montezuma has evolved from a place for travelers to a more mature touristy village. However, in Costa Rica it is still known for its active night life.

On the other side, on the open Pacific Coast, you will find wide, long beaches where you can walk for miles and where you will often experience breathtakingly beautiful sunsets. During the last ten years, the surf beaches of Mal País, Playa Carmen and Santa Teresa have developed from a sleepy village to a boomtown.
The beach attracts surfers from around the world as surfing is guaranteed, not like other beaches where the wave depends
on the swell and the weather.

In comparison, Manzanillo, with its beautiful beach, still has very little tourism but there is also a lot of planning and construction going on in order to offer the future visitor even more. Since fifteen years a Sandcastle Comptetition is held here and it is always a nice event for young and old.
