This spectacular new beachfront condo is conveniently located one mile south of Tamarindo at Playa Langosta, the most exclusive beach and residential area in Tamarindo. It is close to the finest restaurants and shopping areas but just far enough for peace and solitude. Here you will enjoy surfing, snorkeling and walks on the beach just outside your front door.
This corner penthouse unit is approximately 2000 sq.ft, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Elegantly furnished, the large master suite has a bathtub, separate shower and dressing area with ocean views.
But why spend your time inside when you can enjoy incredible ocean views from the large rooftop deck that looks out over the surf and pristine waters. Or walk outside to swim in the pool or take a dip in the ocean. From here you can surf right out front at one of the best surf spots in the area, Playa Langosta.

While Jaco could indeed be considered Costa Rica's "Surf City," Tamarindo is probably its spiritual home. Though years of tourism has left the formerly quaint, Italian-settled fishing village a little ragged around the edges, it's still the place to go if you want a good variety of waves, a wide selection of accommodations, a bunch of good restaurants, and a bopping nightlife. Just don't expect to find it uncrowded.
The bay of Tamarindo stretches for about four miles, bordered on the north end by Playa Grande and the Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas de Guanacaste, where leatherback turtles can be seen laying eggs at night, and to the south by the south end of Tamarindo itself. There are at least four distinct surf breaks along that stretch.
Playa Langosta, about a mile south, is a stretch of consistent beachbreak with a rivermouth that can get really good, and Playa Avellanes, a series of rocky reefbreaks, beachbreaks, and another rivermouth, about 30 minutes south, also can get really good. You can usually find an uncrowded peak at one of those two spots, and they generally pick up more swell than Tamarindo. Just south of Avellanes is Playa Negra, a hollow right rock reefbreak that's one of the better tubes in Costa Rica and has the crowds to match.
