Cantarana Hotel & Restaurant

A Hide-Away in Paradise

Our small Boutique Hotel and Restaurant Cantarana is located on Guanacaste Pacific Coast in the bay of Tamarindo, with the pristine, natural, unspoiled beach of Playa Grande lying only 50 meters away from the front door. Yes you will hear the ocean from here!

We are just a three minute walk away from the endless, almost deserted beach, which is a part of the Las Baulas National Park, known for protecting the turtle nesting. From November to March most evenings you will find the Leatherback Turtles come ashore to lay their precious eggs in the sand.

Playa Grande is a gorgeous place for beach lovers, families, surfers and adventure seekers with a perfect location to explore the diversity of the region of Guanacaste. If you are looking for a private and relaxing beach holiday or if you want to explore the regions National Parks with the excitement of visiting Volcanos, Waterfalls, Zip lines and Wildlife, you can find it all here, and we take great pride and love on helping you plan the activities and tours to get the best out of your vacation with us.

The town of Tamarindo is separated from Playa Grande by the estuary. During the day you can go on the adventure of an easy walk, including a local water taxi ride. Also if you like to add vibrant night life to your vacation, the town of Tamarindo is only 30 minutes’ drive away, where you will find a large variety of different restaurants and also crazy Partys.

The National Airport of Liberia is just one hour away from us and we are happy to arrange you transportation and bring you directly to the Hotel.

Come and enjoy our little slice of paradise!

We speak German, English and Spanish and, of course, we’ll be delighted to help you arrange tours.
