Joey, the owner is very nice and works hard to make his place a nice and comfortable place to stay. The place is not on the beach but it's a 10-15 minute walk.

The ride to the resort was only 25 minutes and we were greeted at the main entrance by a member of the hotel staff. The check in counter was outside and was a very friendly experience. A girl brought a couple of coconut drinks to us while they checked us in and we also had a chance to arrange ...
... to was Playa Langosta it was about 30 minutes away, around the coast from our hostel. There wasn't much happening there and was pretty quiet so we just relaxed for an hour or so before heading back along the beach to the other bay where Tamarindo beach was. This was a lot busier packed full of surfers of all ages taking lessons as Tamarindo was the neighbourhood of all the best surf schools. We contemplated on taking a surfing lesson but it looked so ...
... in the area. We were to go to a souvenir store and ask for Leonardo Jr. After a false start on getting a map from him (he initially drew it on a piece of paper he needed to keep), we headed out.
I had imagined that with a name like Leonardo Jr., we were going to be looking for an elderly gentleman. Turns out Leonardo Jr. is younger than we are. Upon our arrival, he took us through the shop to ...
