Destinations Visited: Tamarindo, San Jose

Discover San Jose's main landmarks and attractions and experience the Tamarindo beach's paradox: tranquil, yet touristy; developed, yet authentic and close-knit, but transient.

Sunbathe, play in the waves and enjoy Tamarindo, Langosta and Playa Grande (make sure you do not step on the crocodiles sunbathing near the mangroves!).
