Located in the tropical dry forest of Guanacaste, Tamarindo is one of the driest beach destinations in Costa Rica for the majority of the year. The town is active and lively with restaurants and bars, and small shops lining the streets. The beach is the main attraction, famous for the impressive surf, but Tamarindo also has its share of great swimming and boogie boarding locations making it a terrific location for just about anybody that loves the beach. All of this and more is within a short drive or about a 15-minute walk from the hotel.
Aside from the beach and town, many activities are available in Tamarindo. Catamaran cruises offer a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the scenic Guanacaste coastline or simply enjoy an easy going ride. Riverboat safaris at Palo Verde National Park provide the opportunity to see many bird species, monkeys, iguanas, and giant crocs. There are several canopy zipline courses in Tamarindo to choose from, each allowing you to soar like an eagle through the canopy treetops. Or take an all day adventure at one of the Rincon de la Vieja adventure ranches.
Of course, you can also just relax and enjoy the pura vida life at Hotel Capitan Suizo. Take a stroll down the beach or bathe in the warm waters of the Pacific. Surrounded by tall trees, the freeform swimming pool and lounge area provide a welcome break from the midday sun. Monkeys and other wildlife frequently visit the grounds, adding to the experience.
The hotel's Aromas del Mar Spa rests peacefully among the tropical gardens. Expert therapists provide a variety of treatments and massages and can help you decide which treatment is best for you. Of course, all of this is offered with the sounds of the ocean in the background.
Dining at the hotel's open-air seaside restaurant is both scenic and delightful. The restaurant serves a mix of Costa Rican and International cuisine, using fresh and organic ingredients whenever possible. Also, the hotel offers romantic candle light dinners as an added service.
