Tambor Tropical is an inviting, upscale, boutique beachfront resort in a Costa Rican wonderland of gentle waves, swaying palms and ocean breezes.


You need to get away — something unique, exotic and exquisitely relaxing. You need a place where the people are friendly, the location is safe and affordable, and the adventures are plentiful and memorable.

Tambor Tropical fits the bill on all counts. This charming, boutique resort offers surprisingly spacious suites, fresh farm-to-table cuisine, exquisite massage treatments, yoga at dawn, and activities that will dazzle your senses. Located on the Nicoya Peninsula, this beachfront property provides guests the freedom to explore and the privacy to simply relax.

Tambor Tropical is unique in terms of the bay’s safety, the great seashells along the volcanic-sand beach, easy kayaking, plentiful fishing, and the simple pleasure of walking through the small village.

Here you can stroll into the rainforest and enjoy a galaxy of birds, playful monkeys, or fleet of green parakeets. Or simply sit poolside watching the hummingbirds dart about, and enjoy the singular site of a pair of scarlet macaws soaring by.

It’s all waiting for you by the bay at Tambor Tropical.

“Really down to earth. We travel to several countries a year and I’d have to say I’ve never experienced something quite like this. Haters gonna hate but the place was perfect. It’s well kept and quite. The staff soon became friends and it’s like the entire community knows each other. The hotel provided everything. The bar was great, food was great, people were amazing and you could get where you wanted to go pretty quick. It’s the first hotel that I’ve shown up at and thought damn, this actually looks way better than the pictures. If you’re traveling to Costa Rica look no further. You’re welcome.”
Asheer, Kansas City, Missouri (excerpt from TripAdvisor)

“Thank-you for a taste of paradise! This was the most wonderful,  exquisite resort – beyond any expectations. I hate to leave! The staff is wonderful and the grounds and rooms are right out of a Hemmingway novel. Thank-you!”
Graham and Laurelle, Canada (excerpt from guestbook)

“There is no place like Tambor Tropical. It overwhelms the senses — the sight of the bay, the sounds of the monkeys and birds, and the smells of the flowers. Just as special is the charm of the staff and the Ticos of Tambor. We will return for our seventh time next year to the paradise that is Tambor.”
– Ruth and Michael Smith, Alexandria, Virginia

“Tambor Tropical is everything you could possibly wish for and more. The natural beauty is spectacular and the hospitality of the people is something i’ll never forget.”
Susan and Brent Lieberman, Oregon, USA (excerpt from guestbook)
