Costa Rica is a country with huge biodiversity. More than 25% of the country has been dedicated a protected natural area, which is a sign of the profound respect they have for their stunning, varied ecosystem. Visitors here have a unique opportunity to explore untouched forests, mountains and coastlines where wildlife flourishes in an environment that remains far removed from human hands. Many visitors come to Costa Rica because of its world-famous beaches, known for their gentle waves and for their many shady spots which are perfect places to unwind.
Tambor Beach is located on the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, which juts into the Pacific Ocean and has a coast full of coves and bays. Tambor is at the opening of a horseshoe-shaped bay known as Ballena Bay, which is flanked by rocky inclines and areas filled with almond trees and palms. It boasts wide beaches of volcanic sand and calm waves. Tambor is a top destination for visitors looking for a peaceful holiday of sunbathing and swimming in calm, crystal-clear waters. Here you can find some of the best-rated all inclusive hotels in Costa Rica, where guests enjoy luxurious services and facilities, such as massages by the sea, fun shows and nightclubs, and restaurants serving fresh fruit and local vegetables. Furthermore, there are extensive and varied swimming pools, golf courses and tennis courts. To spend some fun time in the water you can go kayaking, surfing or water-skiing, or on dry land you can opt to go for a ride on a horse or a quad bike. Boat trips are highly recommended in this region of dazzling coastline and visitors can enjoy such an experience by crossing Nicoya Bay by ferry. This one-hour journey is particularly spectacular at sunset, when they colourful rays of sunlight illuminate the islands and create a landscape of peace and harmony. It is by far the best way to arrive in Tambor.
One hour away by catamaran from Tambor is Tortuga Island, a place unique for its sandy beaches and snorkelling opportunities. Some tours include a trip around the island, a selection of seafood and comfortable seats. Nature-lovers who want to see a variety of monkeys can book an excursion to Curu National Park. Considered by many to be jewel of the many nature parks of Costa Rica, Curu National Park is home to three species of monkey: the howler monkey, the spider monkey and the white-headed capuchin. They can be spotted with ease. Even a short walk along one of the paths will take visitors into mangrove ecosystems, a suspension bridge and dense forest, home to lizards, deer, agoutis and sloths. It is also easy to spot rays, fish and hermit crabs in the clear waters of the park's secluded sea caves. These all inclusive hotels in Costa Rica have highly attentive staff to help visitors schedule special tours, including birdwatching, kayaking, snorkelling or diving, so you can enjoy a bespoke holiday in the wonderful country of Costa Rica.
