After getting across the border we then had to pay a ridiculous price for a taxi because we would have been waiting more hours for crazily overcrowded buses. It turned out to be too difficult to get where i wanted to go that day so I followed the crew of people I knew to Tamarindo.
Playa Tamarindo is more expensive and more packed with tourists than where i've been before, unfortunately. And the tourists aren't backpackers who are exploring the world trying to learn from it, they're mostly families of well-off Americans with a couple of weeks in summer
So apart from these concerns i still had a pretty nice time in Tamarindo - more beach and beer, and there was a kitchen where i could cook, but I was pretty keen to leave Tamarindo soon for somewhere hopefully a bit more my style.
