Tamarindo is a tourist beach town. It's a very very different place compared to those I saw earlier in my trip. It had a lot of drinking nights in Tamarindo! It's a party scene with lots of night life and surfing vibes.
To be totally honest, I actually preferred Heredia to Tamarindo. The touristy thing really isn't my scene as I get older. I ended up only stayin 3 nights because I got bored of the drug dealers and expensive dining options
