This photo shows a portion (about half) of the large, free-form pool at the Diria Resort in the center of Tamarindo. It is the largest pool in town, and it is part of the largest resort in town.
Guests of the hotel and the condos that are part of the Diria Resort may swim up and sit at the bar and have a drink, snack or lunch without leaving the pool. The pool has a beach-like gentle sloping entrance, and islands with bridges, tropical plants, and replicas of pre-Columbian statues. Children love this pool, and it is large enough that adults can find quiet places away from children if they wish.
For guests who want to venture beyond the pool or the adjacent beach, the hotel has an excellent activities desk that can book a variety of tours and excursions, such as flying through the forest on ZIP lines, ATV tours, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, golf, surfing lessons, horseback riding, the sail boat sunset cruise (shown in photos posted last weekend), guides who will take visitors out on hikes in some of the nearby national parks, (some of which I have shown in past photos on this website,) such as wildlife viewing boat cruises at Palo Verde National Park, the volcanic activity, waterfalls and forests in Rincon de la Vieja National Park, watching turtles nesting on the beach, and more.
One of our two condos in town is part of the Diria Resort and overlooks this pool, as well as the beach and ocean adjacent to the resort.
