Las Baulas National Marine Park Estuary Tour
This is the best way to witness the local wildlife. Our hotel is located at the entrance of the Las Baulas Marine Park. We highly recommend going on a tour with Don Enrique. This tour is best at high tide, when the estuary floods and boats can access the deep recesses of this extensive mangrove network. View monkeys, crocodiles, plenty of tropical birds, giant crabs, and more. A sunset tour in the estuary is like being on another planet. Definitely do this one.

Tamarindo Bay Catamaran Sunset Tour
At Pueblo Dorado, we think the best way to see the coast and enjoy the famous Tamarindo sunset is aboard a 65ft catamaran. Reserve your tour with the Marlin del Rey and the Blue Dolphin, the two best catamaran tours in Tamarindo. These tours depart Playa Tamarindo daily at 1pm and return just after sunset. Enjoy an open bar, fruit and snacks. The catamaran stops at Playa Huevos or Playa Minas and includes kayaks and snorkeling gear.
