This is about 15 - 20 minutes north of Tamarindo. The scenery is different, as Tamarindo has a long stretch of beach where people can walk for miles along he beach. In the area around Playa Flamingo, the scenery is dramatic, but you cannot walk very far along the smaller beaches. It is more common to see houses and condos up on the hills to take advantage of the views overlooking the ocean and coast, rather than houses and condos down next to the beach.
