Tango Mar: Oasis of comfort and luxury on the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica

Tango Mar sits on 150 acres of the scenically stunning and remote, Southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. Just down the road from Montezuma, the property is a private reserve with only 43 rooms and 3 villas, with views overlooking the Nicoya Gulf and the Pacific Ocean beyond.   

On arrival, the friendly and efficient staff greet you with refreshingly cool towels and a welcome drink. Attention to detail is the hallmark here—staff has been carefully trained to meet your needs. Tango Mar’s efficient operation and relaxing atmosphere ensure your comfort.

Rooms include standard and deluxe rooms that sleep 2 – 6 people, spacious suites and villas that sleep up to 10. Tile floors and minimalist décor serve to highlight the ocean and garden views. Breakfast is included at El Cristobal, the resort’s premier restaurant. The atmosphere throughout is designed to showcase the secluded and stunning beauty of the Nicoya Peninsula with sustainability in mind. 

The resort offers specially priced 3-night packages that include lodging, special activities, and tours, as well as breakfast and dinner each day. The per couple pricing is perfect for honeymooners and couples looking for an intimate getaway.

At El Cristobal for dinner, diners can expect offerings that include fresh seafood, international dishes, and Costa Rican dishes in an elegant dining room appointed with furnishings from the Cristobal tree. The setting is intimately casual, with a jaw-dropping ocean view.

More casual dining at the poolside El Rancho Grill and Restaurant takes advantage of the lush gardens just steps from the beach. El Rancho serves lunch, snacks, and tropical cocktails.

The palm-lined beach will appeal to beachcombers and sunbathers; with 3 pools and a swim-up bar, you’ll enjoy an opportunity for a refreshing and relaxing dip in the water. The resort offers horseback riding, tennis, and golf. Different tours and activities include boat tours through the mangroves and to Tortuga Island for snorkeling; or birding, sportfishing, and scuba diving. Curu, a private wildlife refuge, and Cabo Blanco Nature Park are nearby, the staff at Tango Mar can arrange a guided visit to either.

The 9-hole, par 3/4 Executive Golf Course takes advantage of the gently rolling landscape across the ocean bluff. The course is designed for casual play among palm trees filled with Costa Rica’s colorful exotic birds. Golfers playing here can tune up their short game. 

The full-service spa offers a full complement of massages, facials, wraps, and salon services for guests to pamper themselves. Spa guests can also take part in an hour-long Pilates class ($30) or design their spa package ($190 for 2 hours).

Tango Mar has something for every guest interested in relaxing in an astonishing atmosphere of beauty and peaceful relaxation. Contact us for more information about your stay, whether you’re coming to Costa Rica for vacation, or planning a family holiday vacation, your wedding, or your honeymoon.
