Hi Lori,

I have been meaning to email you about our trip to Arenal and Tamarindo, Costa Rica.

We had an absolute blast!!! It was EXACTLY what we needed. First off we stayed at Tabacon Resort and Spa - breathtaking. We enjoyed the hot springs and the animals we would see around the resort. We went ziplining - no one else was on the tour - so it was so personalized and fun. I can't remember the tour group but the guys were top notch. We loved the videos/pictures we purchased from them as well. We also did the rainforest walk and were able to get amazing views of the volcano. We loved the lush landscape both at the resort and around the area. We loved the included breakfast buffet - we were all very pleased. If there was a downside I would say that you couldn't walk to town, but honestly our day was full with other activities that we didn't feel the need to leave our resort.

The transportation from Tabacon to Tamarindo was long, but we knew it would be. It was a little hairy at first as the road was very curvy and it made some of us sick, but the stop at an amazing local restaurant for lunch helped cure that. Our driver was so nice and personable.

El Capiton Suizo was exactly what you said - 5 stars. We all felt the website did not do it justice. The views were amazing, the beach was private and relaxing, the sunsets breathtaking. The staff was so nice. We loved that it was boutique style and you really felt that the staff knew you during your stay. We all took advantage of the spa... so relaxing and reasonably priced. The restaurant is great, as well as the bar. The guys in our group didn't really like the breakfast items as they are more bacon/sausage eaters, but my sister and I thought it was just right. We loved that we could walk into town daily and explore many options for dinner. We found an Italian place that was top notch and reasonable that we went to twice. We loved how laid back everything was and that we never had to use a car. We enjoyed taking surf lessons, lounging on the beach and at the pool. We also loved that we could run on the beach in the morning. I can't really think of a downside to Tamarindo except maybe the food - but as you told us before CR isn't known as a culinary destination.

Also, it only rained for ~ 15minutes the day we left Arenal and went to Tamarindo. The weather was amazing.

I'm sure I am leaving some details out, but thank you for organizing an amazing trip. We really really enjoyed Costa Rica - it was truly paradise!!

Best Regards
