for learning on your fun board- unless the swell is so huge that everywhere else is maxed out in which case guiones will hold it. the wave (and paddle out) are super long- but if it's waist high & mushy there you are missing the fun waves nearby- makes a great place to branch out from to a lot of more consnitant and higher performance spots
and for a honeymoon it would be a good recomendation- it is the nicest of the CR beach towns- swank by CR standards- check out the Italian place "la vida dolce"- some amazing food.

Agreed waves in Tarmarindo suck.. but close by are at least half a dozen good spots (no one mentioned Marbella). Agreed lots to do in CR and lots to see but disagree for a honeymoon I don't know that I would want to spend that much time on the road to drive/ ferry to the central coast let alone Quepos from Liberia (you're talking half a day+ road time). I want to have sex, do cool stuff, and surf. You can book touristy stuff to do at any number of shops in Tamarindo on the fly... horses, kayak, zipline, fishing, snorkeling & go to Don Fernando's to eat.. unless you are a vegetarian (even desert is steak). South, central, north, Caribbean all awesome but best explored one or two at a time to get the full effect...just one man's opinion.
both good surf dest but for a honey moon PR unless she is adventurous. I went to CR on my Honeymoon she is spanish so cool she can speak spanish etc.. said it was cool trip but not a good honeymoon I do not recommend it!!! Beaches really arent what chicks are looking for
