The best route route to Playa Tambor is to take the Paquera ferry-boat from Puntarenas and from there 45 kms on paved road to Paquera- Playa Tambor. Another possibiity is to take the Tempisque ferry and take the 107 kms route Puerto Moreno- San Blas- Jicaral- Playa Naranjo- Paquera- Tambor. We recommend a four wheel drive vehicle.

This beach of whitish sands is located in Ballena Bay in the southern portion of the Nicoya Peninsula. It is set amid hills of volcanic origin dotted with trees. The narrow, sandy strip is bordered to the south by rock platforms and to the north by the River Pánica, which separates it from the wide Pochote Beach that extends as far as the estuary of the same name.

The road that leads to Tambor, the beach itself and Ballena Bay traverses a scenic mosaic of great contrasts from the blue coastal waters beneath swooping and diving seabirds, to the lush littoral woodland, to the sere grasses of the hills thick with corozo palms, to the green pastures of the little alluvial valleys.
