Pocket Guide: Tambor

Your Hotel Stay in Tambor

Book a hotel in Tambor in the southern Nicoya Peninsula and pack your case for idyllic beaches, mangrove swamps, rivers and rainforests. There is plenty to see and do in the popular tourist destination, so you’ll have a good choice of three-star hotels and B&Bs in Tambor and in its neighbouring town of Montezuma.

Tambor and Bahia Ballena

The resort town of Tambor lies in a horseshoe shaped bay on the Nicoya Peninsula, on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. The bay, Bahia Ballena, is named after the whales which used to stop by these waters in the dry season. Now, the shallow, calm water promises excellent swimming even for the more-timid bather, especially at low tide. Tambor nestles among lush forest hills which make up part of the Nicoya Peninsula’s protected Biological Corridor, and offer excellent opportunities for guided hiking and wildlife-spotting – a wide choice of tours can be booked through your hotel or in Tambor.

Things to Do around Tambor

Just along the coast from Tambor lies the Curu National Wildlife Refuge, an area of protected beaches, mangrove estuaries and forest that is home to hundreds of species of birds including parrots, parakeets, ospreys and scarlet macaws. Hawksbill and Green Sea Turtles come to the beach to lay their eggs, and if you keep your eyes open, you might also spy anteaters, peccaries, ocelots and coyotes. Tortuga Island lies off the coast, a little paradise of white sand beaches and something of a haven for snorkellers and divers staying on the Nicoya Peninsula. You can book a boat trip to Tortuga which includes a guided tour of the island, snorkelling and a tasty lunch.

The Southern Nicoya Peninsula

Venturing a little further south along the coast brings you to the Cabo Blanco Absolute Natural Reserve. There are two walking routes, the gentle Danes Trail, which loops through the forest, and the challenging Sueco Trail, which leads you over mountains to a pristine white sand beach. Playa Quesera lies to Tambor’s north, a beautiful tropic beach-dream-come-true with clear water, gentle waves and a shallow incline making it a great place for all the family to swim and snorkel.
