Guestbook comments from the manager

One more time we had a great time in Tamarindo, where we have been vacationing since 1981. We love the Diria and are thrilled that staying at the condo in the Diria complex worked out so well. All of you at 1st Choice were very accommodating and, as usual, the people at the Diria were wonderful. This is the first time we have stayed anywhere but in the hotel and it was nice to have the extra space as well as the kitchen and laundry facilities.



We cannot say enough about the Tamarindo area for a vacation spot. The beach is fabulous. There are plenty of things to do. Everywhere we went the people were pleasant and helpful. The variety of restaurants gave us plenty of places from which to choose. Our friends who were with us stated that they have vacationed in a number of beach places, but to them, Tamarindo seemed especially welcoming.



Thank you for helping us have a great vacation with our sons and friends. We hope to be back soon. La Pura Vida in Costa Rica!

Tamarindo is a beautiful beach town that is equally a tropical paradise as well as a multicultural hotspot. Called by Forbes magazine Costa Rica’s most popular beach, the town has a mixture of high-end shopping, dining, nightlife opportunities combined with Costa Rican flavor. Locals from Costa Rica, the United States, Germany, Italy, Argentina, France, and other nations, operate international gourmet restaurants, bars, casinos, clothing stores, surf shops, beautiful handicrafts stores, and more. Infrastructure abounds in banks, pharmacies, a post office, internet facilities, supermarkets, doctors, dentist, rental cars, video stores, etc.

Located just inside of town, behind the Tamarindo Diria’s private Golf Range, the Tamarindo Airport has nearly hourly flights coming and going from two National airlines: Sansa Airlines and Nature Air. When Robert August filmed a segment about Tamarindo in his Endless Summer movie, Tamarindo became internationally famous for its surfing. And for good reason: There are no less than five world-class surf breaks within driving distance of the center of town. These include: Playa Grande, Playa Avellanas, Playa Negra, Playa Langosta, and of course, Tamarindo itself.

And Tamarindo has been the location for other filming as well. E! Wild On Costa Rica and MTV Real World sent one of its casts down here to learn to surf in the Bay. Locals have recently filmed a movie called Fe De Agua for showing at international film festivals, and the popular soap opera Meine Wunderbare Familie—watched by millions every week—spent two weeks shooting scenes to air in Germany. The blue Pacific also offers itself to sports fishermen, sailors, scuba divers, and snorkelers, while Tamarindo affords tourists a wide variety of tour options including horse riding, estuary tours, ATV tours, canopy tours, and more. There are also two championship golf courses nearby, as well as tennis courts for the so-inclined. Tamarindo Beach is located next to Tamarindo National Wildlife Refuge and and Las Baulas National Park, which encompasses Playa Grande. That is where the Leatherback Turtles nest each year and daily tours are available in season to see our national treasures. In addition, because of the natural habitat of Tamarindo Beach, just a daily walk will allow you to see Howler Monkeys, Iguanas, Parrots, and various wild life at your every step.

There’s no better way to experience the Costa Rican culture than to visit one of the typical fiestas that take place in the evenings virtually every week in a town around Playa Tamarindo during the Gold Season between December through May. As a matter of fact, Guanacaste is famous for its spirit-filled typical fiestas with traditional bull riding (corrida de toros) and colorful horse parades (topes) with dancing as well. Merengue, Cumbia, and Salsa are the typical music played at these fiestas, and don’t forget to try the various foods like beef and potatoes (picadillo), fried chicken (pollo frito), chicharrones (fried pork), corn on the cob, (elote) and for desert, sugared donut sticks (churros). In town, Tamarindo is known countrywide for its nightlife beginning with a selection of restaurants that reflect its global population. Whether it’s Costa Rican, Italian, Sushi, French, Argentinan, Asian Fusion, seafood to gourmet and a scene, or some other style, there’s a budget and cuisine here for any savvy palate.

After dinner, hit a casino, or the dance floor at the popular upscale discotheque. If not, there’s always a crowd at our local bars, which offer special events every night. The Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort itself hosts fashion shows and concerts at their Amphitheater; check with the Tour Desk for scheduled activities. For a quiet, romantic evening, try a moonlight sail, available by appointment only. And there’s no better Tamarindo nightlife than one will find when taking a stroll down the beach basking in the gorgeous glow of the night sky, serenaded by the sounds of nature.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Great place to stay, highly recommended for a family or large group of 5. Hosts were great, Audra was super friendly and responded to our request almost immediately and without hesitation. She was also able to provide us transportation upon our last minute request which was super cool! The condo is extremely close to the beach and within minutes to anything and everything you could possibly want to do. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Beautiful ocean views and an excellent Tamarindo condo!

  • 5 of 5

The Diria condo is located right in the middle of town, allowing you to walk to the beach and all local shops/restaurants. During our week long stay we'd highly recommend the restaurants Dragonfly, La Baula Pizza, as well as Green Papaya.

We enjoyed eating breakfast each morning on the patio while soaking in the ocean view. The condo was very well equipped and suited our family of 4 excellently. Access to beach towels and a washer/dryer were very nice. After playing at the beach during the day, the huge family pool and swim up bar was a great way too cool down.

The people of Costa Rica are very friendly and helpful. Most speak English fluently and the American dollar/credit cards are accepted pretty much everywhere. Juan from Matos Surf Shop was an excellent surf teacher and prices were less than booking through the hotel.

We greatly enjoyed our catamaran/snorkeling and Diamanté Eco Park/zip line experiences booked through 1st Choice Reality. We were hesitant to drive in a foreign country, but were so glad we chose to do so. The main roads are well maintained and Google Maps was very helpful. The Diria condos are gated and security is provided through the resort including the parking lots. We felt safe throughout our stay. It's recommended that you not take valuable to the beach and leave unattended. You can rent beach chairs and an umbrella for $5 each for the day. Definitely worth every cent! Pack lots of sunscreen, as it's very expensive ($20+) in the local stores. Other items I'd take next time include: travel-size container of laundry detergent, dryer sheets, soap and shampoo for 2 bathrooms, and ground coffee. The only addition I can recommend being added to the condo is a cutting board. It truly had everything we needed and a cleaning was provided mid-week. We had an excellent experience!!! Pura vida!

Great location - condo needs a few more amenities

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Diria 504. Great central location and good walkability.

We stayed in the second bedroom which did not have a closet or area to hang clothes. Sunset view from back hall not front porch.

If you rent this unit, they do have beach towels so save the space in your luggage for kitchen basics like a cutting board, garbage bags and some laundry detergent.

Also WIFI does not work in the second bedroom.
