We are a nature lover’s paradise.
WELCOME TO TAMBOR TROPICAL BEACH RESORT
As the country of Costa Rica is the undisputed darling for ecotourism, the Nicoya Peninsula has been globally recognized by National Geographic as one of the 10 Blue Zones; the healthiest places to live on planet earth. Based at the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula on the Pacific Ocean beachfront, guests discover Tambor Tropical Resort.
We are quietly nestled in a small village where you will discover 10 suites with an ambiance that is private and intimate. With our list of activities, you can also opt for the “do nothing at all” choice beginning with the lush gardens, memorable architecture, or a rejuvenating stroll along our beach. We have an extraordinary variety of shells, volcanic rocks and driftwood arriving gently with each tide.
Two stories of hand-crafted 1,000 square foot suites, all with private verandas and full kitchens, feature a wonderful view of the ocean offering the sunrise from your bed. The suites surround a deep blue tiled pool with lounge chairs and poolside service. We also offer one Garden Suite located on the second floor with a lush tropical forest view.
Our onsite restaurant supports open-air dining and relaxation at the thatched roof bar. Classic Costa Rican dishes and continental cuisine feature fresh-caught fish and more. Meals can also be delivered to your suite. The resort is a favorite destination for special occasions (weddings, honeymoons, and retreats). We continue to serve more than 100 Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve dinners year after year.
Suites are air-conditioned and allow for open breezes, if preferred. A broad assortment of available activities (birding, hiking and an onsite turtle reserve) blend in with a 20-step access to the volcanic sands of the Pacific Ocean. Basics such as daily housekeeping, Wi-Fi, transportation to the nearby local airport, onsite parking available.
The resort was constructed in 1994 as a boutique resort for adults seeking an unspoiled, natural playground. Sustainable practices and established events include baby turtle releases, bird counts, athletic tournaments, and the tradition of delivering educational toys to more than 200 local children on Christmas morning.
For families with children under 18, we also offer the Tambor Villa situated 4 miles from the resort. It features a private pool, three bedrooms, a massive great hall for meals and relaxation, and a full kitchen with preparation services available. A short 15-minute hike down to the beach delivers a different view of the Bay.
