Happy 2013 & Feliz año!


We can already feel it – 2013 is going to be the best year to-date for Las Mareas. With Pangas Beach Club up and running (New Year’s Eve dinner was booked solid with reservation days before the 31st!) and villa construction progressing daily, we are confident that the new year will hold great things for everyone involved with Las Mareas.


It’s been a while since we’ve released a proper newsletter, but we’re ready to start 2013 off right with this full, detailed list of news, events and other happenings here in Tamarindo.

  • In December, high season hit us full-throttle and there’s been a steady stream of visitors coming to enjoy a slice of Tamarindo ever since. Although the New Year’s Eve crowds are on their way out, the season is far from over and we couldn’t be more excited to show Las Mareas and Pangas to everyone who visits over the next few months. The increased population in town brings several positive effects to Las Mareas – namely a boost in the number of walk-ins we’ve seen in the Sales Office as well as more frequent villa showings and tours.
  • Probably the biggest piece of news since last time: PANGAS BEACH CLUB IS OPEN! Coincidentally, the beach club opened on December 4, the same day as the year-end Las Mareas shareholder’s meeting. We were fortunate to host the two-day meeting upstairs in the dining room at Pangas and in a true testament to the skill of our operators, Elizabeth Cole (Manager) and Jean-Luc Taulere (Chef) provided excellent service and delicious food to the entire group while simultaneously managing the inevitable craziness that comes with opening a new restaurant. Bravo!
  • Since opening, Pangas has taken off. The beautiful beachfront location, friendly staff and well-priced menu are proving to be an unbeatable combination in Tamarindo. Word of mouth built a loyal following in our first month and we want to thank everyone who has been coming back to make Pangas a true success. With your support, we’ve seen Pangas transform into something more than just a restaurant – every day the place feels a little warmer and a little more like home. Surfers noticed the premiere beachfront location and we’re happy to say Pangas is providing fuel for kids going out for a surf lesson and re-vitalizing some of our shareholders when they get back from a paddleboard through the Estuary. 
  • Christmas was another big hit at Pangas. The restaurant hosted its first “Christmas Day Buffet,” on the 25th with an all-you-can-eat buffet for $28 from 1 to 9 p.m. A bunch of people came to spend Christmas dinner on the beach and of course, a buffet meal is always a crowd favorite!
  • Along with Pangas, the beach club’s Facebook page is surging in popularity and has become the hub of information for day-to-day happenings, customer photos and menu updates. It’s also been an incredibly useful interactive tool for receiving feedback and communicating with our customers. Be sure to check it out at www.facebook.com/pangastamarindo. The Pangas website, www.pangasbeachclub.com, is still under construction and will be the next big project for 2013.
  • The villas at Las Mareas are also progressing and day by day we’re seeing our vision come to life on the hill. In mid-December, the Pella windows arrived and are being installed in the villas as we speak. Right now, villas #1 and #2 are equipped with windows and we’re laying the beautiful coffee-colored roofing tiles as well. The next step? The bi-folding door systems for the living room and master bedroom patios, made by the California-based La Cantina, are expected to arrive in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for photos of the process!
  • In addition to showing the villas to frequent walk-ins here in the office, we’ve also noticed a rise in local realtors coming with clients to tour Las Mareas, which is a great help and we thank them for their continued efforts and excitement about the project!
  • With the villas on schedule to be complete this spring, we’re beginning to advertise our VRBO listing for vacation rentals to begin booking for May, 2013. You can visit our page on VRBO here: http://www.vrbo.com/419708.
That’s just a brief overview to start the new year, but please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@lasmareas.com with any further questions, feedback or inquiries. Thanks again for your continued support and expect to hear more great things from Las Mareas & Pangas in 2013!
Who knows… Maybe this is the year you make your dream of living in paradise a reality… We’re currently offering special, pre-sale prices on our 3-bedroom/3.5-bathroom villas so contact us for more information today!
Cheers and Happy New Year! Wishing you all the best for 2013.
