We wrote a full guide on Activities in Tamarindo.
From Liberia Airport you can order a shuttle to Tamarindo. This costs 40 USD if you are with at least 2 people and travel between 12:00 and 14:00 on Sunday afternoon. Otherwise you can grab a taxi yourself, which should be between 30 and 50 USD per car.
From San José you can take a public bus (ALFARO), which costs 10 USD. The departure times are 11:30 am and 3:30 pm and you must purchase a ticket for this yourself. If you sleep in one of the student houses, this is not an option, because you will not be at the school before 16:00 on Sundays (and the reception will be closed). An alternative is the Interbus, which runs a lot faster than the ALFARO. You can take this bus at 8:15 am so that you arrive in Tamarindo while the reception is still open. The price is around 60 USD.

This school has a beautiful campus, incredibly friendly teachers, and an amazing location, but it is not worthy your money. Myself and 2 friends took classes for 2 weeks here.

This is a well deserved 5 stars rating. This was my second time going to that school and I stayed for 6 weeks this time. The teachers meets every morning before classes to talk about the students progress. If you take private class in addition to your regular class, the teachers will talk to each other during the break to communicate what to improve during your private class. They will adjust their teaching to your interest. They are the same teachers from my last visit 6 years ago. Some of them are from Santa Cruz which is about 1.5 hours away by bus. Their dedication to the school and long term employment of the teachers shows how the school management take care of their teachers. There is a lot of work happening in the back ground that students doesn't notice. Also the school is well maintain with full time cleaners and a maintenance guy. There are hammocks to relax when you need and free coffee at at breaks. The office have staffs that will arrange late afternoon free activities twice a week, arrange laundry services for you with no commission charge (you need to pay the laundry company tho) and help you with anything you need in a very polite and efficient way. Reading the other comments below, I don't feel the price were overcharged. Tamarindo is not a cheap place to be. In relation to the cost of living in Tamarindo, I find it very fair. The school has amazing houses where you can rent a room and I highly recommend it. The houses has daily cleaning service and well under prices for the area. I stayed for a week to a hostel accross the street after deciding to extend my stay and it cost me $100/day. It was the cheapest place to stay at the time and it was a small room and a shared bathroom with 6 other rooms. Casa Carolina has a maintained pool, secured lock gate, cameras... There is a 24/7 emergency number to the school. Thanks to the amazing Wayra team. I will see you again in my next holidays.
This school has a beautiful campus, incredibly friendly teachers, and an amazing location, but it is not worthy your money. Myself and 2 friends took classes for 2 weeks here. We loved a lot of things here. Taking classes on their campus in the trees was awesome, we frequently saw monkeys and iguanas right outside our classroom. The teachers were also very friendly and patient. But the classes were also very unorganized. Myself and my two friends found ourselves consistently grouped with people not of our similar skill. I ended up repeating the exact same topics I covered in my first week during my second week because there was a younger student who joined our class. My friends also found themselves consistently moved down levels because of a lack of students at their level. It felt the classes were organized more for the convenience of the teachers rather than the benefit of student learning. Myself and my friends tried to different classes but we’re not allowed. Additionally because every class rotates to a new teacher next week it can feel that your growth and learning from one week to the next is consistently thrown off as the teachers would repeat or skip topics. While it was nice to interact with someone new, there wasn’t enough communication between the teachers do it felt like starting over each week. This is a great school but myself and my 2 friends found ourselves unsatisfied after the 2 weeks given the high price. If price is at all a concern for you, we suggest finding a different school more worth your money.
