Tambor Tropical is an exclusive complex located on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica’s breathtaking Nicoya Peninsula. From this northwest corner of a peaceful country, known for friendly people, magnificent scenery, and a perfect climate, we bring all the pleasures of the traditional tropical getaway, making a stay at Tambor Tropical a memory that lasts a lifetime.

We were told time and time again we are the best in Costa Rica. Each of our private beachfront suites are nestled within lush tropical greenery to ensure total seclusion for every guest and easy enjoyment of local flora and fauna. Suites are hand crafted from beautiful local(non-endangered)hardwoods, employing traditional native skills and offering unique, spacious quarters.

Each suite is a spacious 1,000 square feet and includes one living room-bedroom, a tiled bath with a shower, a fully equipped kitchen, fans, and a wrapped veranda for gazing at the sea with sleepy sunrises. Air conditioning is available in a number of suites.To preserve the mystique of this tropical getaway, occupancy is always limited to two guests per suite.

Tambor Tropical offers guests a pool with jacuzzi, outdoor bar, and an intimate dining setting for enjoying hearty local dishes prepared by our own chef at our full service restaurant. Laundry and other personal services are available. For business retreats we offer support services on request. Most importantly, the needs of a guest are met by friendly, bilingual staff.

Do Nothing; or Do it All!!

We pride ourselves on teaching our guests the fine art of "doing nothing" and leaving everything to us! Lying in the shade of a swaying palm or relaxing on the veranda, as jabber-jaw monkeys prance through the treetops are just some of the “do nothing” activities in which we take pride.

The complex fronts the Pacific Ocean; perfect for spending the afternoon warming in the tropical sun and listening to the whisper of the surf. With a constant water temperature of 80 degrees, the Pacific is ideal for a relaxing swim or just drifting lazily while pelicans dive in the Bay.

For the more adventurous, Tambor Tropical offers a wide range of recreational opportunities. Fishing for record-breaking marlin or sailfish, snorkeling in tropical waters, lobster diving, nature walks in wildlife preserves, horseback rides along a meandering tropical trail, estuary boat trips, island visits, waterfalls complete with swimming holes, quaint local villages; these are just a few of the unforgettable attractions available to our guests.


"..nothing could have prepared me for the awesome beauty and tranquility of Costa Rica's most memorable inn...This hotel gets my highest recommendation and should not be missed."
Paul Glassman & Ron Charles, Open Road Publishing's Costa Rica Guide
"I can't even begin to express what a wonderful stay we had at your paradise in early May. We were on our honeymoon, and I don't think we could have found a more perfect place to stay. How wonderful to wake in the morning to the sun rising over the ocean and palms which we could all see right from the bed! The room was always spotless and the beautiful woodwork polished under it glowed, I was also pleased with the beach. The water was warm and the waves were gentle enough to enjoy safely. Plus, there were no crowds on the sand. Again, we could go on and on about how wonderful our visit was. We will surely recommend Tambor Tropical to all our friends planning vacations."
Kate & Carl Kusnick
"I wanted to let you know that my friends and I had a fabulous time at Tambor Tropical in November. The resort is beautiful, the location on the water is paradise! The staff were very helpful, professional and a lot of fun. We had a great time and would definitely come back!"
Stephanie Jones
"I have always been a advocate of Hawaii, until this trip. Now all 15 of us are talking about a repeat performance next year. Please convey our appreciation to the staff at Tambor Tropical."
Carol and Neil Kaser.
