Golf in Tamarindo
Costa Rica is fast becoming a premier golf destination with Guanacaste leading the way. That’s because tropical golf courses are unique in beauty and design. Imagine playing golf on a course nestled between the ocean and a natural dry tropical forest bursting with wildlife such as Howler Monkeys, various birds or iguanas.
Nearby Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort there are two world-class golf courses that we offer to our guests at a special rate. Hacienda Pinilla features the 6,800-meter Audubon Society-sanctioned Mike Young designed championship course. Then there’s the challenging 18-hole, par 71 golf course, designed by Robert Trent Jones II, at Westin Playa Conchal. Both courses offer club and cart rentals, and if you are a beginner, lessons. Please check with our Tour Desk for information and tee time availability.
Golf in Tamarindo Diria
If per chance, you want to work on your game, without taking in a full 18 holes, the Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort has its own private driving range located 2 kilometers from the hotel, just in front of the Tamarindo Airport. The use of the range is free to hotel guests.
Golf in Rancho Tamarindo
Since golf is an important part of our area’s growth, Grupo Diria has future development plans to serve the sport and its aficionados. This includes the development of the first, airport golf community in Costa Rica called Rancho Tamarindo. This will be a commercial area built around the Tamarindo Airport, with a private, 18-hole championship golf course, residential area, condominiums, equestrian center, nature trails, horse trails, and an estuary park, all inside a gated community. Construction and pre-sales to begin soon.
Running in Tamarindo
Running on the sand provides a soft running surface, and a view. In addition, the increase in collision time on soft sand also indicates that sand has less rebound than pavement, which forces the quadriceps, hip flexors and gluteus muscles to all engage more than they do on a normal run. Soft sand beach running without shoes forces the smaller stabilizing muscles in the knees, ankles and feet to work harder than on a normal road run.
Costa Rica is internationally famous for its surf and much of those breaks are right outside our door at the Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort. We cater to the surfer. Whether you are a beginner or have been ripping for years, our goal is to put you into Costa Rica’s famous, beautiful, fun rideable waves.
For tennis enthusiasts, Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort offers a tennis court. Private lessons, clinics and player match-ups are available, as well as tennis equipment and accessories. Our tennis court is also fully lighted with 5,000 watt light fixtures for those who wish to play after dark.
