Tambor Costa Rica | La Casa Azul

Nicoya Peninsula Costa Rica




Create memories of a lifetime in one of the most beautiful cities in the world - Tambor, Located in the Nicoya Peninsula. The most noted feature of the Peninsula is the beaches. Known for its stunning semi-deserted beaches linked together by grey stone cliffs or tangles of knotted mangroves, as well as enchanting villages, with a very unhurried temperament, the Nicoya Peninsula is the more rustic end of Costa Rica’s northern Pacific coastline. Within the vast expanse of coastline are innumerable magnificent beaches with dramatic coastal scenery, and small villages, each with its own distinct charm. Water sports such as surfing & fishing define many local communities. Most areas have been discovered by surfers as the Pacific side of Costa Rica presents one of the best stretches of surfing coastline in the world.


For eco-tourists, the Nicoya Peninsula beckons with some spectacular natural phenomena, from turtle beaches to subterranean cave systems, bird hotspots, and maritime riches. They are protected in various nature reserves throughout the peninsula.


Nicoya is known as one of the world’s “Blue Zones,” an area where locals live noticeably longer and healthier lives. This is thanks in part to the stunning natural environment around them. The abundance of nutrient-rich fruits is a staple of the Nicoyan blue zone diet and may explain why the region’s cancer rate is the lowest in the country. Spending a week there could do wonders for your mind, body, and soul!


The Nicoya Peninsula is the perfect off the beaten path escape. Explore Blue Zone living & detox from daily stresses at this international wellness destination. The rugged, mountainous landscape and laid-back lifestyle are ideal for any traveller in need of a little rest and relaxation.  


More recently, it has become a popular spot for a “digital detox,” taking a break from the technology that permeates modern life. The lifestyle here is simple, and the area is home to some of the most active, well-nourished, hard-working people on earth.  


Temperatures range from 22-36ºC depending on what month you're visiting. You'll also love how easy it is to get around. When driving it's hard to get lost because like the wizard of oz they say follow the yellow brick road, here you simply follow the only paved road! Leaving our villa area if you turn RIGHT you'll head towards Paquera where the ferry lands as well as the Curu Reserve. If you turn LEFT you'll head to Montezuma, Cabuya, MalPais, Santa Teresa and Cobano.  Here is a copy of the map so you can see how simple getting around really is.  


Also a fun fact for the TV buff is in 2001 they filmed "Temptation Island 2" here in Tambor so if you loved the views and the excursions you'll love our villa. You can even have dinner at the "female's" restaurant located a short 5min drive up the street from our villa.

We love Adobe Rent A Car & personally use them every time we visit Costa Rica. We love that we are supporting a local company and not a big chain. 

They offer the same car but provide such great value when booking. 


We highly suggest adding them to your list of companies to get a quote from because we do believe they are one of the best.  Note: during high season it's entirely possible for all car rental companies to be sold out so book early & reserve your car.
