Best Affordable Beach Resorts 2011

Tambor Tropical

Frances Juriansz

Tambor Tropical
Tambor, Costa Rica

Nicoya Peninsula is known for its uninterrupted beaches, charming villages, and large, family-oriented resorts. Enter Tambor Tropical, an intimate, adults-only hotel with 12 teak-and-mahogany villas. Wraparound windows provide tantalizing views of the Pacific, but the hotel’s biggest draw is its long list of activities, from watersports to voluntourism opportunities.

Cost: $160

Don’t Miss: A six-hour kayaking and snorkeling excursion with Seascape Kayak Tours (seascapekayaktours.com; $135).
