I Rediscovered the Magic of Tamarindo—With a Little Help From a Friend

When my husband and I moved to Tamarindo, Costa Rica, we had a plan. We designed a life with our main residence in Costa Rica, and a smaller one in Austin, Texas (returning each autumn for football, family, and frivolity). We also allotted two or three months of each year for international travel.

Playas del Coco is the closest beach town to Liberia Airport (LIR), which services the Guanacaste area. From here, you can also easily access the top private resorts, such as Four Seasons, Secrets, Planet Hollywood, Andez, and the Riu. Close by are the towns of Tamarindo (where you go to surf), Playas Flamingo, Hermosa, and many other great beach towns.
