Hotel Pasatiempo is just a short walk from Playa Tamarindo, one of Costa Rica's most beautiful Pacific beaches Hotel Pasatiempo is located at the center of Tamarindo, one of Costa Rica's most forward-looking and ecologically aware beach communities. Playa Tamarindo, in the province of Guanacaste, is one of the most accessible beaches along the northern Pacific coast of Costa Rica.
There is a paved highway from San Jose for those who wish to rent a car and enjoy the countryside during the 4 to 5-hour drive to Tamarindo. Tamarindo has two seasons, dry and rainy. The dry season, from November to April is dry, warm and sunny with Papagayo winds from January to March. The rainy season begins in April or May and continues through October. A typical day finds sunny or partly cloudy mornings until late afternoon or evening, when the warm refreshing tropical rain begins. Everything is green and lush during these months. Many of our guests prefer the quieter pace of the green season. Temperatures in Tamarindo range from 80 to 90+ degrees Fahrenheit year round.
