  • Just as advertised

    "Condo was great. Right on the beach as advertised. Roomy and very comfortable. Very close to Jaco and all the restaurants. I would definitely stay here again."

  • This is Paradise

    "My girlfriend and I have been here nearly one month and it is fabulous. The location is perfect for going into town or the beach. Easy, inexpensive, reliable bus transportation or a quick cab ride. The monkeys have visited, the birds are very vocal and we have an iguana who has taken permanent residence on the patio roof..the amenities are perfect. The heated, locked security closet is a real perk and having a washer and dryer makes the visit even more stress free. The Hotel California behind the complex offers amazing sunsets, happy hour specials, and wonderful food. As two women traveling alone we couldn't feel more safe and secure. Lance and Letty are great people as well as awesome musicians...they rock it every Saturday in Quepos...I did a lot of research on choosing a place to stay for an extended period and I know I got the best value..Pura Vida!"

  • Excellent vacation for large family

    "We returned to this great Los Sueños property after a wonderful first visit in September, and we had a another great experience. Our party of six (including two children) was more than comfortable, but we honestly spent little time in the condo itself, since the great weather kept us at the pools and the beach all day. Having the smaller pool and deck just steps from the condo is a real plus, but the Beach Club pool and bar/grill are where spent most of our time. Justin at the property-management company was very helpful as well. We look forward to returning again soon to this wonderful spot."

    "We just returned from Villa Grande and it was a vacation of a lifetime. We loved the house and most of all we loved Dina who planned everything for us - she went so far above and beyond to plan and provide advice. She was always available if we needed anything. Thanks Dina and we can't wait to return to Costa Rica! Pura Vida!"

Tambor Travel Tips

Tambor Beach Rentals on Whale Bay

Cliffs rising above the sea, which is ringed by sandy beaches and Tambor beach rentals, await you in Costa Rica. Tambor is nestled in Puntarenas Province on the Pacific Ocean on a horseshoe-shaped bay. The bay is named Bahia Ballena or Whale Bay because the whales used to visit during the drier seasons. Unfortunately, the whales hardly ever come into the bay, so your vacations in Costa Rica might require a boat trip if you want to see these magnificent creatures. The area is filled with Tambor resorts to welcome guests onto the Nicoya Peninsula.

Tambor Resorts in a Biological Reserve

The Nicoya Peninsula is considered the biological corridor of Costa Rica due to the ecological biodiversity found around Tambor resorts. On the northern side of the bay, a few minutes from Tambor beach rentals, is the Curu Wildlife Reserve. The reserve protects the wildlife of Costa Rica such as the various species of birds, reptiles, and sea turtles. Your vacations in Costa Rica can be spent roaming the Islas Tortugas, a paradise reached by boat from Tambor. It is one of the only tropical islands of the area not overly crowded by tourists.

Vacations in Costa Rica with Palm Tree Lanes

A few of the Tambor resorts are right on the beach, so you will not require a car. However, you may want a car to explore other beaches and nature reserves. The sand on the Tambor Beach is gray due to a high volcanic activity in the past. The beach of Tambor is lined with almendro and palm trees. Vacations in Costa Rica can be filled with volleyball, soccer, surfing, or water sports all available along the beach.

Tambor Beach Rentals Offer Hidden Pools for Swimming

If you are on a romantic holiday, take the time for beach walks from Tambor beach rentals. From the pier on the southern tip of Tambor, you can walk along the beach and up rocky paths to Cocalitos Beach. As you continue your walk, you will find El Chorro waterfall which empties into the ocean. In this area, there is a rocky pool filled with warm clear water for bathing in.
