Tamarindo Massage with Mask

A Tamarindo massage by a masseuse wearing a mask gives you peace of mind while you enjoy your massage. Similarly, wear one yourself for even more protection.

Also, it’s a good idea for both you and your masseuse to get your massage outdoors, or in a room with good air-flow.

In any case, I wouldn’t be too worried as we are not aware of a single case of COVID-19 anywhere in the area!

So, relax and enjoy your massage your auto-immune system will lover it.

Tell me about Tamarindo, Costa Rica

Tamarindo, Costa Rica, began as a small fishing village on the northwest coast of Costa Rica in the hot, dry province of Guanacaste. And, in the last 30 years, it has become a famous tourist destination.

Typically accessed by a large international airport in Liberia just one hour drive away (FYI, the airport designation is LIB for Liberia International Airport.), Tamarindo is only a one-hour drive.

Surfing Destination

The growth of Tamarindo into an international vacation destination began with the premiere of a cult travel surfing film called “Endless Summer II,” where it was featured in a 15-minute segment.

Since the film, the popularity of Tamarindo among surfers kept growing, and now it’s considering a full-fledged, surfing destination.

Mixed Retirement Community

Many retired people still have lots of life left in them, and they appreciate a town or destination offering both spontaneous neighborhood adventures and planned events. And, Tamarindo fits the bill!

Unique to the Tamarindo lifestyle is the mysterious fact that every time you venture out the unexpected happens!

Beach goers

Nothing wrong either with wanting to relax and shop in a small Costa Rican beach town for a change of pace to recharge your batteries.

On the beach, there are restaurants and attractions, not to mention surfing and surf lessons.

Visiting interesting surrounding towns

Feel more adventurous? What to see and experience what’s around you?

Tamarindo is not as isolated as you think! There are plenty of other interesting tourist towns and beaches just outside of Tamarindo, in case you want to venture out.

Unique to many places you may visit, the Costa Rican towns are built into Tamarindo, and there are plenty of unspoiled towns nearby.

Some of those are Playa Grande, Flamingo, Potrero, Hacienda Pinilla, etc. BTW, we service all of them. Contact us for appointment availability.

Also, if you’d like to add my personal touch to your vacation planning, contact me. I can help.

A good night’s sleep.

Maybe the least discussed benefit of a massage is the most important. It’s how well you “sleep like a baby” after a massage! It’s important because a good night’s sleep keeps your immune system strong, gives mental clarity, and ignites energy levels.

No Matter Where You Go in Tamarindo, or What You Do, a Massage Makes Your Day!

The zen effects of our massages follow you throughout your day. From your early morning walks to surfing the waves of Tamarindo Bay, all your activities are more fun when you’re relaxed and without pain.


  1. What Are the Benefits of a Tamarindo Massage for Surfers?

    While surfing can be a blast! A restricted, painful body limits your fun.

    Because you know that the surf is going to beat you up? Why not set up a massage in advance between your shower and nap time. However, arrange your schedule to accommodate sleeping until the next morning.

  2. How would Massages by Elizabeth help me enjoy a Tamarindo Catamaran Cruise?

    My best example is feeling awkward trying to get up off the deck and swagger over for a drink. After sitting on a hard deck and relying on your back to bend and leg muscles to stretch to stand up can be disappointing and embarrassing.

    Even more, when it comes time to snorkel at a beautiful deserted bay, too many are happy to stay aboard, watch, and relax. Why? Their body and mind aren't ready, while others enjoy the full experience of the cruise.

  3. How does a massage help me enjoy a Tamarindo area canopy tours?

    Streaming over the treetops on a rope is the easy part! For some, there is the awkwardness of physical stiffness while getting in and out of the canopy harness, while pretending it's your second nature.

    More than anything, massages give you confidence in your movements to bend or flex where necessary, plus the energy to book a canopy tour in the first place.

Benefits of Tamarindo Massages for Surfers!

The older you get the more benefits from relaxing massages, especially shoulders. Professionally done massages, relax them and help you recover faster.

And so, no matter what your skill level surfing relaxed and and loose is a big benefit! I also highly recommend yoga classes for similar benefits, with the inclusion of balance training.

Especially if you’re older and so know in advance that the surf is going to beat up your body, why not set up a massage in advance. Schedule it between your returning shower and nap time, or arrange your schedule to accommodate a massage followed by a good night’s sleep.

Catamaran Cruises

My personal favorite is reducing that awkward feeling trying to get up off the deck to retrieve another drink. All too often, my age shows when I simply try gracefully standing up and walk on a rolling deck.

they struggle to get to their feet as their body lacks flexibility. If only they didn’t have those tighten muscles they wouldn’t experience pain just getting up.

Further, when it comes time to snorkel, too many are happy to stay aboard, watch, and relax. If their body and mind were ready, they’d be in the water looking at the fish.

Vacation-ending backaches

Sometimes I spend far too many hours sitting while typing on my computer and fail to schedule a massage. The result is susceptibility to pulling a back muscle, which happens about 2 times per year, in which I’m in bed for 4-5 days!

A massage or yoga exercises are the best preventive measures to ensure this doesn’t happen to you.

Canopy tours are a favorite!

Unfortunately, most people are not in the shape they think. What many don’t realize is that massages actually tone your body, to some degree.

Anyways, feeling relaxed and flexible [Remember my advice on taking yoga classes, plus getting massages.] definitely takes away lots of the fear of streaming over and through the treelines during a canopy tour.

And, getting on and off gracefully is often the greatest challenge. After all, we all want others to think we’re comfortable swinging in the trees like Tarzan or Jane.


Considering the benefits of a Tamarindo Massage, it’s amazing not everyone doesn’t get one to kick off their vacation, or stave-off the pains of getting older. Besides, almost everyone who comes here wants to relax and get away.

And so, getting a massage at the beginning of a vacation is a sensible, rational thing to do.
