The wave here used to be very hollow but over the years the sandbar shifted and now it’s a complete different story.
This spot is suitable for all levels of surfers. Waves peel to the right and left at El Estero.
This spot is easy to reach from most of the hotels in Tamarindo, just look out for the river.
On October 13 2013 an American crocodile attacked a surfer from Spain in Tamarindo. The surfer only suffered minor injuries from the attack of the 3 m (9.8 foot) long crocodile. October is mating season for crocodiles and they tend to be more aggressive.
There is a skatepark in Tamarindo with a concrete snake run. The skatepark is open from dawn until dark and is free of charge.
