I rented a little apartment thats a three minute walk from the beach and in the hub of the town. Tamarindo is the cutest little place! The streets are lined with shops, restaurants, accommodations, a yoga studio, and a few juice bars. After flying into San Jose I took an extremely bumpy five hour bus ride which arrived at night.... and the next morning I woke up in paradise. My first stop was to the juice bar before a trip to the grocery store for a gorgeous large papaya, watermelon, and avocado.
(My apartment is the building to the left where the blue chairs are)
So far, my days consist of a trip to the juice bar in the morning for a young coconut with a straw in the top or a juice, a trip to the grocery store for a papaya which I eat on the beach for breaky, a stroll along the beach with multiple dips into the ocean to cool down because its sooo hot here, a yoga class, a restaurant for dinner, shopping along the main street, and anything I forgot about. Today I went to 2 yoga classes - hatha and a vinyasa flow. Both were fabulous and just what I needed.
Have you ever been to Costa Rica? I'm excited to try surfing!
