Costa Rica has many beach communities with beautiful coastline, breathtaking scenery, rich and warm Central American culture, but as far as a healthy, family environment, a great place to raise children, close enough to anything you need, Playa Tamarindo and Langosta is at the top of the list.
My son and I moved from Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste last October and have found that it fit all our needs without being right in the middle of town. It’s just close enough to be near schools, markets, restaurants, nightlife, less than one hour from the international airport and the infrastructure needed to feel safe and secure. And now with the newly paved roads, the package is complete.
Now my son has all the friends he could hope for. He is very active in surfing, skateboarding, Jui-Jitsu, biking and many other activities.
There is a strong sense of community here with many more business opportunities for myself as well, still maintaining the tropical and exotic lifestyle I have always wanted.
And for the surfing enthusiast, Playa Tamarindo, Langosta and neighboring beaches provide world-class waves for every skill level within walking distance.
I would encourage you to have a look at Tamarindo and Langosta as far as a possible new home, second vacation home or a real estate investment.
