Tambor, on the Gulf of Nicoya, is perfect for watersports such as windsurfing on the great half-moon shaped Bahia Ballena (Whale Bay). There are also facilities nearby for sailing, and an excellent golf course. If you like unusual thrills Ulrich Lang of Tambor will take you up in an ultralight aircraft, and you'll see some incredibly beautiful scenery from a different aspect. Ulli has also made a very beautiful video of his flights over this panorama and about Tambor in general.
In the backland of Tambor you´ll find Pánica, which is a nice laid back village on a big river. Here the tourist can make a nice comfy farm vacation with trips to the beach on a horseback.
It is available at the Toucan Souvenirshop in town. Have a look at it!
Lately Pánica has become a spot where a lot of building takes place.
