LOS DELFINES, TAMBOR and AREA

Nestled on Tambor Beach, Los Delfines is a serene community on the sun-drenched southeastern coast of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. With picturesque mountains in the background and a calm horseshoe bay, Bahia Ballena, Los Delfines offers a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. As the name suggests, the bay is a haven for whales that migrate here every year to mate and give birth in the midst of the rich marine life. The gentle waters of the bay provide a safe and serene place for swimming and snorkeling, making it ideal for families with small children. Tambor, a neighboring village situated in a lush valley, offers an array of amenities including shops, restaurants, and a golf course. Local operators offer an abundance of activities such as surfing, kayaking, scuba diving, and beach volleyball, while the small fishing community a half-mile south provides opportunities for deep-sea fishing tours and boat rentals. With its peaceful vibe, Los Delfines is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the natural beauty of Costa Rica. https://nicoyapeninsula.com/tambor/

Cóbano - This town is located about 8 miles west of Tambor and 5 miles inland from the Pacific coast. It's the main hub for accessing the stunning beaches and coastal villages on the south Pacific coast, including Montezuma, Cabuya, Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, Manzanillo, and the breathtaking Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve. You will find restaurants and bars, a post office, pharmacy, a bank, a variety of shops, a gasoline station, and a few supermarkets. Don't miss the farmer's market for fresh and affordable fruit and vegetables. Health services are available from several dentists, a 24-hour medical clinic, and a private ambulance. https://nicoyapeninsula.com/cobano/

Montezuma is a fun village located about 20 miles down the road from Tambor on the south-western tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. Once a remote fishing village, it became popular in the 90s with younger North American backpackers and surfers. Montezuma offers beautiful white sandy beaches and a laid-back village atmosphere with a unique town center. It also has nearby nature reserves, making it an attractive destination for tourists. Despite the lively social life, the town has a small village feel without large resorts, giving it a personalized and unique atmosphere. Montezuma is home to many Italian immigrants who have opened upscale restaurants. There is a famous and stunning waterfall nearby through the trails, “Montezuma Falls”, which forms three large pools where people with more courage than me regularly jump from great heights. Be sure to bring your hiking shoes as the trail into the falls is not flip flop friendly, but so worth the hike. https://nicoyapeninsula.com/montezuma/

Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve was Costa Rica's first national park established in 1963 by a nature-loving couple, Swedish Olof Wessberg and Danish Karen Morgensen, who wanted to protect the last tracts of tropical rain forest on the peninsula. This 3,143-acre reserve is now an evergreen forest with rivers and beaches that is home to a variety of birds and animals. It's a popular destination for hiking, wildlife observation and beach exploration. Visitors can spot white-faced and howler monkeys, sloths, raccoons, pelicans, and many other animals. There are also 120 bird species including parrots, trogons, and frigatebirds. Visit and enjoy the natural beauty of Cabo Blanco, but remember to bring your own food and drinks as camping is not allowed.

Santa Teresa is a laid-back beach town located about 4 miles north of the Pacific shore. This long, wide expanse of white sand is dotted with rocky outcroppings and backed by an old-growth forest. Surfing is a popular activity here, and the waves can get pretty heavy and fast. In fact, Santa Teresa is a hotspot for celebrity surfers like Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady. But there's more to do than just ride the waves - nature hikes and horseback riding are also popular pastimes. Go on down to Santa Teresa and see what all the fuss is about!

TORTUGA ISLAND is a picture-perfect tropical getaway just one mile off the shore, northeast of Tambor. This little slice of paradise is popular among tourists for its clear turquoise waters, pristine white sand beaches, and breathtaking views. With just over 3 square miles, there are plenty of coconut palm trees swaying in the breeze, making it perfect for relaxing and enjoying the ocean view. Snorkeling, swimming, and birdwatching are popular activities on this gentle shoreline, where one can observe the vibrant marine life and colorful birds amidst the exotic vegetation. Visitors can join day-long excursions from various mainland locations, including delicious meals.

Curú National Park is a stunning 3,000 acre reserve established in 1983. It's located opposite Tortuga Island, about 9 miles northeast of Tambor. The park has mangrove swamps, hills, beaches, and forests, with a diverse range of indigenous flora and fauna. There are more than 115 bird species, so bring your binoculars! There are 17 trails to explore and plenty of secluded, white sandy beaches lined with palm trees to unwind on. The water is perfect for swimming and diving, with gentle waves, slight slope, and crystal-clear clarity. The park also offers bilingual guided tours with easy walks through the forest and fields to learn about native trees, plants, and wildlife. In season, visitors can indulge in the rare treat of wild fruits.

Paquera - This chill village is best known for its ferry terminal that connects the southern Nicoya Peninsula to the central Pacific coast. The vibe here is laid back and tranquil, perfect for a peaceful getaway. Accommodations are affordable, and the restaurants serve up tasty eats. You can also find a gas station and internet café, along with fresh seafood and locally grown produce.

Puntarenas - the ferry hub of Nicoya Gulf! The largest city in the Central Pacific and home to over 100,000 peeps. The city's built on a long strip of land jutting into the ocean and boasts some wicked sandy beaches. Stroll along the Tourist Walk (aka el Paseo de los Turistas) lined with trees, and check out our cool beachfront hotels, bars, discos, and shops.


Back in the day, Puntarenas was the hotspot for coffee and agricultural product exports. But, times have changed, and they have shifted to commercial fishing to keep the city thriving. There is a cruise-ship dock, an aquarium, and an artisan's row full of local crafts.


Weekends and holidays are buzzing with visitors from all over who come to experience the unique city vibe. Plus, it is the perfect jump-off point to explore the rad beaches, islands, and forests in the surrounding areas. A smooth highway connects it to San Jose, so it is just over 2-3 hours away by car.
