Smilin Dog Front Photo-5503

Welcome to Casa Smilin’ Dog in Playa Tamarindo.

Playa Tamarindo is one of Costa Rica’s most popular holiday destinations and a top surfing spot as well. It’s a friendly small town with a great beach and lots to do.

We have 3 self catering apartments. We’re just a quick walk to the beach – 3-4 minutes, the local shop is just a couple of blocks up the road and the centre of Tamarindo is only a 5 minute stroll with loads of shops, bars, restaurants and banks.

There’s so much wild life it’s like living in a Nature Programme film set!  We have an abundance of Howler Monkeys, birds, iguanas, butterflies, raccoons in our garden and some you might see on the way to our beautiful beach.

The weather is fantastic with hot days and warm nights – you can have dinner under the stars and all you need to wear is shorts and a T shirt but don’t forget your flip flops!

So come and enjoy a relaxing, secure holiday at Casa Smilin’ Dog – we’re a small friendly family run business consisting of self catering apartments each with its own outside kitchen and dining area. All bedrooms have air con, wi-fi and cable. All our apartments are at ground floor level and overlook our pretty communal garden.
