Why stay

Hotel Capitan Suizo is located directly on a Pacific Beach, outside of Tamarindo at the end of the bay. Built by a Swiss couple, you will find subtle elegance and quality, mixed with a relaxing atmosphere. Choose one of 22 rooms, a regular or a honeymoon bungalow, or the four-bedroom-suite when travelling with family or friends. All rooms have a balcony or terrace, overlooking lush tropical gardens and the ocean. Capitan Suizo's  rich vegetation attracts a wide variety of wildlife - birds, monkeys, iguanas, geckos, armadillos to name a few. Enjoy your personal oasis at this charming retreat.

Why wander

Costa Rica is a paradise for those looking for adventure and natural diversity - whether it's a rainforest, a volcano, or the perfect beach. Tamarindo Bay has some of the most tranquil currents on the Pacific Coast and considered one of the safest beaches. It is absolutely perfect for water sports, such as snorkelling, kayaking, sailing or surfing. You can also explore the surrounding area by bike or on horseback, and see the famous Tamarindo sunsets. For a day trip of Costa Rican adventure, we recommend Hiking at Rincon de la Vieja National Park, where you can hike through the nearest active volcano, experience a volcanic mud bath and enjoy the thermal water of the hot springs surrounded by raniforest scenery. Visit the Arenal Volcano National Park where the red lava flow will amaze you. Hike through the Tenorio Volcano National Park for a blue lagoon waterfall and rich biodiversity. At Barra Honda National Park, you will find underground caves with amazing stalactite and stalagmite formations.

Indulge in

Tilapia rolls, cucumber gazpacho, BBQs and private dinners on the beach.
