Amid lush greenery and colorful fruit trees lay El Chante’s six distinct guest bungalows – each one just waiting to be discovered.

Located at the heart of Costa Rica’s Gold Coast Beaches, Tamarindo is the region’s most vibrant and dynamic beach town. Made famous for its unparalleled surf and laidback beach culture, Tamarindo draws thousands of visitors from around the globe to its shores every year.
Once an untamed fishing village, Tamarindo has grown into a miniature metropolis with a thriving and culturally diverse community of locals and foreigners alike. Tamarindo’s allure captures the spirit of many visitors who find it hard to leave after experiencing the consistent surf, year-round warm weather and healthy outdoor lifestyle encompassed by the Costa Rican phrase, “Pura Vida.”
There’s something for every budget, background and taste in Tamarindo. Whether you’re looking for a 5-star restaurant or traditional local street food, Tamarindo has it all. The perfect combination of city balanced with nature, Tamarindo caters to anyone who craves an authentic Costa Rican experience with the comfort of knowing modern amenities can be found just around the corner.
Gift shops, international restaurants and beachfront bars line the bustling main streets of Tamarindo keeping the town full of life and energy even in the low season. Running parallel to the main street is Tamarindo Beach, a vibrant playground where you will always find sunbathers, surfers and beachgoers playing volleyball or hanging out in the sand. Flanked by Langosta Beach to the south and Playa Grande to the north, Tamarindo Beach is an easy walk to some of the area’s best hidden beaches and untapped surf spots.
It’s no surprise that an abundance of wellness, nature, beauty and healthy living has classified Tamarindo and much of the Guanacaste region as being located in the “Blue Zone” – a place where happiness and life expectancy is among the highest in the world.
Less than a 5-minute walk to Tamarindo Beach and downtown, El Chante offers views of golden sands and azure waters with the dynamic town center as your backyard. Located in the quiet, northern end of Tamarindo, El Chante is close to the action, but secluded enough to avoid hearing any loud noises from the street. Also on this edge of town is access to the area’s best right-hand surf break. Even if you’ve never picked up a board before, El Chante is central to multiple surf spots suited for all skill levels.
Further north of the property lies Las Baulas National Marine Park, a nesting ground for the indigenous giant leatherback sea turtles. Rich in wildlife, the area is home to an abundance of exotic species such as monkeys, iguanas and tropical birds.
