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!

Victorious Return


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.

Catamaran – if you don’t get it don’t worry. I at first didn’t get it. Thinking about it I still don’t, oh well the only thing I can tell you is it’s a boat, a fun one too. I had a hell of time, on catamaran I went with my sister my mom and my aunt. It was my first time I got on a boat and the only bad thing about it is the sea sickness – augh! I wanted to puke but forget about that. I got to steer the wheel and I felt like Jack Sparrow!

I saw dolphins and I think I saw an eel with them. It was that our all that puke went to my head. Well, in a catamaran u get to go snorkeling. Actually I have a funny story about snorkeling. In that same boat my aunt doesn’t know how to swim so we tried to teach her but she almost drowned us. She had everything to go under the water but I guess she was really scared. She told me that she felt that the boat was on top of her. I guess she really didn’t want to let us know she can’t swim, but the past is the past.

If u want to know more, press here to know how to get the boat on top of you – just kidding!

Zip Line de Cartagena – There was the first time I went on zip line. I almost crapped in my pants I was so scared. But, at the same time I was having fun, and the best part was my cousin Sofi screaming like crazy. Yeah, comes with us everywhere. Boring but what can u do when your cousin scares the heck out of u? Oh… well, like I was saying we went with my mom my dad my sister and last but not least oh who am I kidding she’s least all right, my cousin.

So, my mom couldn’t go on the zip line so she stayed in the car. So, there we were and someone had to go first and that person was my dad to take pictures like every dad does when he sees he’s little bird fly in the air. So, the next person was me I thought I was going to die. I screamed like never before and finally the fun torture was over. Then it was my sister’s turn, but let’s forget about that (reminders – she’s a bit boring, a bit? who am I kidding). So now its Sofi’s turn and I think forgot to say this but it was her first time too, and that girl, there is nothing she’s not afraid of. She cried, screamed, and it looked like she was dying, so finally the guy got tired and had to go with her but she still couldn’t calm down and that’s how she acted the rest of the day at Zip Line de Cartagena. Instead of having fun I couldn’t hear for the rest of the day, even my mom heard her from the car oh… well but actually I had a blast!

If u want fly like a bird come on down to Zip Line de Cartagena. Let’s see if u have more fun than me. Oh… how could I forget – there’s monkey there, real life eatable monkeys.

Ah… the Corn Festival! I still remember it like it where yesterday, but actually it was last year in 7th grade. The 10th graders had to pick someone from 7th to 9th to participate. Each student had to represent their class, and like nobody wanted to. Let’s say I “took one for the team”, in this case class.

So, the corn festival is something like the beauty pageant but native style. The 10th graders had to design our dresses and make a speech for us candidates. So, like I wanted to be the best! I called Nature Spa to help. I looked gorgeous. Everybody said I was the most beautiful, thanking about it with or without makeup I was the prettiest there. Those girls looked terrible, augh! And, even so I lost (who knows why I lost no kidding those girls looked ugly) I was the prettiest there thanks to who……….Nature Spa!

Mani & Pedi – Silvia is one of the owners of the spa and she does miraculous with your nails and your hearing from a girl who nails where literally disgusting. She made my nails look like the new Lady Gaga. This woman has a natural talent maybe that’s why it’s called Nature Spa – mmm…. But really, she’s really good, so good she could make Miley Cyrus go back to normal. I’m kidding! But, if u don’t believe me book a plane to Costa Rica to find out, and if your already hear even better!

Hair Styles – Andres is one of the owners of Nature Spa and he cuts hair there, and if you have witches hair he’ll turn in to Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty you name it! Thanks to him, I don’t look like Beauty and the Beast anymore and trust me I wasn’t beauty.

I would show u the pictures but I burned those things a long… time ago, Thank God!

But let’s not remember the past and focus on the future. So, come on, that glass slipper won’t wait 4ever
