Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends from the United States! Here in Costa Rica we call Thanksgiving the Dia Accion de Gracias, and though it is not a Costa Rican holiday we definitely like to take the time to reflect and be grateful.

What are we thankful for this Thanksgiving? We are thankful for the sunshine that graces our beaches and gardens and warms our souls. We are thankful for the staff here at our hotel who keeps our property beautiful and ready to greet our smiling guests from all corners of the world. We are thankful for being in Costa Rica, where Pura Vida really is the way of life here, which is why this country is always ranked as one of the happiest countries in the world. Lastly, we are thankful for our guests, new and regulars, who come to our beachfront bed and breakfast every year to rejuvenate, relax, and enjoy all our property has to offer. If you have visited us, thank you! And if you are considering paying us a visit, we thank you as well! Wherever you are, we hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Antares Sailing Adventure Tour

If sailing is on your to-do list for your Tamarindo, Costa Rica vacation, here at Sueño del Mar Bed & Breakfast we can set you up with one of the best sailing adventures around! The Antares is an 80-foot schooner anchored right here in the Tamarindo bay. Not only is the Antares located nearby and ready to take you on a beautiful tour of the surrounding waters, it is also family owned and operated by long-term Tamarindo residents! While you sail into the open waters, you will also be treated with on-board gourmet dining, an open bar, and cozy bean bag chairs to lounge in while you take in the scenery.
The crew will sail you out of the bay to some of the best local snorkeling spots for you to explore. And if you would rather hang out on board and relax in the sun, you can enjoy some live music while sipping your refreshing cocktail. After the snorkeling portion of the trip, you will be served an incredible meal made from fresh, local ingredients. Some of the menu options include fresh tuna, salmon, and plenty of veggie options as well.

Come stay with us at our luxury bed and breakfast here in Tamarindo, Costa Rica and let us plan your next great sailing adventure on the Antares!

ATV tours in Costa Rica!!

Costa Rica is the perfect destination for adventurous travelers, and here in Tamarindo, Costa Rica we have plenty of opportunities to explore! Along with being a famous spot for surfing, Tamarindo is also an ideal destination to check out the scenery while riding an ATV (all terrain vehicle). Set out with a guide to explore the beach, the rugged trails in the tropical forests, and the mountains in and around Tamarindo. An ATV tour is an exhilarating way to check out the area's scenery including several varieties of native trees such as teak and guanacaste trees. While you are admiring the trees from your ATV, be sure to keep your eyes open for wildlife! Howler and capuchin monkeys, several species of birds, and even armadillos may be seen along the way. Most ATV tours also take you on a trip through a Costa Rican town where you can encounter the local farms, markets, and friendly faces.

Here at our boutique bed and breakfast we will be happy to set up your ATV tour! Most tours last 2-3 hours and can be taken in the morning or the afternoon. The ATV company will provide you with a guide for your group, helmets, refreshments, and even round trip transportation from our bed and breakfast. Remember to wear comfortable clothes and tennis shoes, as well as sunscreen and insect repellent. If you want to hop in the ocean on the beach portion of your ATV tour, we suggest wearing a swim suit under your clothes and bringing a towel.

ATV tours are a unique way to experience the scenic views and local charm of Tamarindo, Costa Rica! Make sure to let us know here at our bed and breakfast and we will set you up with the best ATV tour guides in town!

Our beachfront hotel in Playa Langosta is the perfect setting for your next Costa Rica vacation.
