NOTE: This information has not been confirmed by Disney Corporation yet.

According to Liberia’s Mayor Luis Gerardo Castañeda, Disney Corporation acquired land on which they intend to build a theme park in Liberia, Costa Rica.

Mayor Castañeda said that for more than a year the Disney Corporation has been conducting ground surveys. This amusement park would be built at a place called Guardia in Liberia, only 40 minutes drive from world class beaches like Tamarindo, Langosta, Potrero and Flamingo. Vacation Rentals of Tamarindo is glad to offer you the best condominiums for rent or sale at any of these beautiful beaches, tours services are available. The park would be only a 10 min. drive from Liberia’s International Airport (LIR)

This would be the first Disney Park in Latin America. Furthermore, Mayor Castañeda commented that there is a possibility that the company will pursue construction permits early next year (2014).

Today right in front of the Tamarindo’s office of Vacation Rental of Tamarindo there was this guy riding a crazy tall bike. It called the attention of everyone there because it looked so funny, he was riding something like that for the first time and seemed he could fall any time.  This is just one example of the funny stories you can experience yourself if you visit the Costa Rica Gold Coast!

On July 1st 2013 CNN posted an article entitled “World’s 50 best surf spots”. In the list we found Tamarindo in the 27th position. Here is their view of it:

“Good for beginners and experts, this half-kilometer stretch of beach with warm water generates waves that reach heights of three meters.”

“Howler monkeys swing through the trees and parakeets screech in the background.”

However many users expressed their disagree for having only one Costa Rican beach on the list. It is probably impossible to make a top 50 list of surfing spots that everyone agrees with, nevertheless we want to highlight the fact that Tamarindo is known around the globe.
