Tango Mar

Tango Mar is a delightful cluster of villas, oceanfront rooms and suites all nestled on a beautiful private reserve with superb beachfront vistas. The rooms have all been renovated recently to a high standard with elegant modern décor. If it is romance you are after, then look no further. Tango Mar has it in spades from the Tropical suites, to the Tiki suites complete with Jacuzzi. You don’t get better views than this and the beachfront rooms, are exactly what they say. Whilst the beach isn’t private it is rarely occupied by more than a few people, and these are usually guests at the resort so it really is an exclusive location. Enjoy sumptuous dishes in the two restaurants. The chefs prepare dishes using fresh produce from the hotel’s own organic garden. There are four swimming pools, take your pick, a mini-spa and a fitness room. To top it all there are also several hiking trails on the private reserve where you can wander freely and explore the sights and sounds of the forest.

“Most of the staff at the hotel come from the local area. When building the property the established trees were left standing and they began to reforest the area, in fact the entire hotel was built using just two cement mixers and an excavator for the pool.  The gardens are chemical free. The owners are heavily involved in uplifting the local area of Tamarindo and they support local projects and services.”

And don’t forget … for every booking we get, Costa Rica Specialists plants trees in deforested areas of latin America through The Travel Forest, and we back The Tribes Foundation’s conservation and social projects.
