While on a tour of Costa Rica, you may find yourself longing to spend the day on the beaches of Tamarindo, which are filled from end to end with bikini-clad vacationers and tanned surfers. Unknown to many adventurers is the town's burgeoning culinary scene, which caters to health-conscious travelers who would rather eat a pile of vegetables than sirloin steak.
At Nogui's Sunset Cafe, you can take in the prismatic hues of twilight as you feast on a hearty selection of seafood. As the oldest restaurant in town, the chefs at Nogui's know how to prepare every dish to perfection. The no-frills menu highlights the simple flavors of Tamarindo's local cuisine, which focuses on freshness. Don't hesitate to order the catch of the day with a pile of rice and beans before washing it down with a sweet and refreshing margarita made with tamarind fruit.
For a high-end meal during your Costa Rica tour, make your way to the Nibbana Beach Bar and Restaurant, which serves up a mouthwatering menu of grilled lobster and fresh mahi mahi filets. With an impressive wine list and an ambiance to match, you can bring along a loved one and enjoy a private dinner at one of the tables situated on the sand. Tucked between palm trees, this intimate setting is the perfect place to share a special moment.
If you came to Tamarindo for nothing but seafood and good times, head to the Copacabana, where you can order a caipirinha with an entire red snapper fish, served piping hot after being grilled on an open grill.
