One week in Costa Rica - around Tamarindo

Jump to last reply

We are sending our granddaughter (19 years old) to Costa Rica for four to five weeks to a Spanish Language school (Institute of Spanish Language Studies) in Tamarindo in June. We would like to go at the end of her stay and tour round Costa Rica for a week.

We would like to go to Tamarindo to see the school, her lodging, and meet the teachers, so we will probably fly into Libreria. Any recommendations on the must sees near there? We would like to use Marriott Guanacaste as a base as we will be using Marriott points.

Do we need a car? Do we need to hire a car and a driver? We heard that the road in Costa Rica is difficult to negotiate.

July is the raining season in Costa Rica, is that something to worry about?

I coundn't find any reviews on the school, if anyone can provide anything information about that school would be appreciated.

We have never been to Costa Rica, so we are quite excited about the propect of going there. We are getting older (in our 60's), can't take a aggresive itinerary anymore.

Pat and Rick
