Property Description

From sleepy fishing village to booming beach town, Tamarindo has become one of Costa Rica’s most popular destinations. Even as specialty cafés, chic boutiques, and global fusion restaurants fill its streets, it has managed to maintain its relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Just 30 miles from the Liberia international airport, it offers easy access to beautiful beaches and unique tropical ecosystems.

Selina Tamarindo continues our tradition of sustainable properties that blend naturally with their environment. We seek to build community here, and daily activities like morning yoga, salsa lessons, and surfing classes do just that. Our common areas, like the swimming pool, kitchen, and playground with live music and DJ sets on the weekends are perfect for socializing and making friends. Make sure you try the delicious concoctions of our restaurant & bar.

From ocean activities to tours of the jungle, Tamarindo has no shortage of things to do. Learn how to surf, go horseback riding on the beach, or put on a snorkel and mask to head below the water’s surface. You can also go sports fishing and even take a canoe tour through the waters of the Tamarindo Wildlife Refuge. The town, filled with travelers, expats, and locals, has tons of options for eating, drinking, and shopping; no matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll certainly experience “pura vida” in Tamarindo.

    As always you can trust Selinas. Clean, modern, swimming pool, welcome drink, good vibes, great people. The place to stay at. I realize this hostel has a lower rating than other Selinas but after having stayed elsewhere in Tamarindo as well I can confirm Selinas is miles above the competition. Just book it!

    Great location, walk to the beach and restaurants. Cool grounds. We had a private room, so I cant speakto the bunks, but our room was clean and comfortable... Don't forget, you're not at a hotel, had a raw beach vibe. Big courtyard area was good to hangout. Most of the staff was very friendly. The COFFEE spot where the streets meet was pretty legit.

    Very Good

    A nice hostel, but when I stayed there the bar was closed due to covid restrictions so the atmosphere wasn’t as social. Also the rooms are quite old so the bathrooms weren’t that nice (the shower was clogged and the ventilation was bad so it smelled) so I think overall it wasn’t a good value for money. However the breakfast and complimentary drink were very good!

    The common areas were shut down because of a party they had the week before so we couldn’t even eat at the tables. No atmosphere at all, probably also by the disposition of the whole place. Rooms were not very nice either.. Wouldn’t come back
