    An Amazing Experience Near Tamarindo
    Scott_N, Mar 2023
    For our 2nd trip to Costa Rica my fiance and I were seeking an experience off the beaten path. This daytrip with Esteban did not disappoint. He catered the experience to our every wish. There were many options, but we ultimately decided to visit a "secret" beach which allowed us to enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica away from the busier, more touristy beaches around Tamarindo. We snorkeled, hiked up some very manageable terrain to observe a truly incredible sunset, and ended the day enjoying a few local beers and freshly grilled food around a beach campfire. Esteban could not have been a better guide. He was on time, polite, and left us feeling as though we made a friend for life. We are truly grateful to have taken this incredible journey. If you want to experience the true nature of Costa Rica away from the crowds, then this trip is for you! We will never forget this perfect day.
