Map and Directions

The Barceló Tambor Beach***** Hotel is located on the magnificent Tambor Beach on the Nicoya peninsula, on the famous Bahía Ballena, Costa Rica. Located in a natural environment of exuberant and incomparable beauty, the town of Tambor is located 15 Km from the hotel.

What's more, if you travel by plane, your flight from Juan Santamaría Airport will be barely 25 minutes, or if you prefer to travel over ground from the city of San José, the port of Puntarenas is 90 Km away, where you can board the ferry to the Puerto de Paquera. During the passage which will last just over an hour, you will have an incredible view of the Gulf of Nicoya. We recommend that you take this trip in the evening and enjoy a spectacular sunset between the islands that surround the route.
