The volcanic history of this area serves up a dark grey-colored, almost black sand beach which is the site of Costa Rica’s first all-inclusive resort which offers a small casino.

Close to Tambor, a very small town, are two 9-hole golf courses, one is north of the village and the other one south of Tambor.
