We had previously stayed at Playa Langosta at a B&B and wanted something more private and economical for our stay this year. We found it in Villa Jazmin. The villa was immaculate, tastefully furnished, had a great private pool, comfortable beds, gourmet kitchen, fast internet, and good security. The beach is right across the street and we had dedicated parking for our rental car with a dedicated night watchman. We had a blast in Tamarindo and in the surrounding area taking SCUBA trips, fishing, and a couple in our group took surfing lessons which they absolutely loved. A group of Congo monkeys visited us almost every morning as well as lots of birds and iguanas. We had several great meals in town (highly recommend Carolina's) and we took advantage of the great local supermarket (Auto Mercado) to make our own great meals.
