Overlooking sweeping views to the Pacific Ocean, Playa Grande National Marine Park, Tamarindo Estuary, and downtown, Senderos Tamarindo is one of the region’s most distinctive and exclusive communities. And at 110 acres, it’s also the largest luxury gated community in Tamarindo.

Welcome to a community that declares you can have at all, no compromise required. For here, in the heart of it all, you will be welcome to a community designed by internationally renowned architects, adhering to the principles of environmental stewardship, and home to some of the most luxurious amenities on the coast.

Because at Senderos, your experience is everything. It begins with the community’s unparalleled location: situated on the northern edge of downtown, Senderos Tamarindo puts you within walking distance of hundreds of restaurants, the sand, the surf, and everything else that brought you to life in Costa Rica.

At 110 acres, Senderos is the largest gated community in downtown Tamarindo

Senderos is a luxury community under development. As of mid-2022, many of their exclusive amenities are still planned and/or under construction.

Senderos Tamarindo Beach Club

We’ll start with what is, perhaps, the community’s most anticipated amenity: the Senderos Beach Club. As of mid-2022, Senderos has begun designing their beachfront gathering space, which promises to be the perfect spot to while away a day, begin your ocean adventures, or just relax by the pool.

The Senderos Beach Club, designed by renowned Costa Rican architect Abraham Valenzuela, will offer:

  • Beachfront Pools
  • Beachfront Restaurant
  • Cocktail Lounge
  • Locker Room & Surfboard Storage

Senderos Valley Club

The Senderos lifestyle is one of action and adventure – and only the very best of both. In addition to beach shuttles that transport you directly to the sand and surf, Senderos’ planned Valley Club will provide residents with access to a swimming pool, gym, racquet sports and tennis, workout and yoga studios, a dog park, and professional fitness staff.

Senderos Rec Center

The community welcomes resident kids and kids-at-heart to their Rec Center, outfitted with foosball, table tennis (ping pong), and a schedule of organized activities.

Walking Trails

The outdoor lifestyle begins right at home, nearly in your own backyard. Residents of Senderos can explore the community’s kilometers of scenic walking trails, which wind through green spaces, art installations, organic gardens, and children’s playgrounds.

Sculpture Parks

Art is an integral part of the Senderos Tamarindo experience. Scattered throughout the community, you’ll find several sculpture parks with lovely art installations.

Gourmet Market, Shops & Restaurants

Here, you’ll have everything you need at your fingertips. When you don’t want to step out into greater Tamarindo, you’ll have a gourmet market, restaurants, and shops here within Senderos itself.

Natural Modern Architecture

Senderos 10E new3

Senderos Tamarindo is designed around the concept of “natural modern” architecture, which dovetails the modern aesthetic with the challenges of tropical building

“Designed with purpose.” This is the promise of Senderos and its renowned architectural team, comprised of eight of Costa Rica’s most talented and award-winning architects. Their innovative spaces and homes are about how you use your home. How you move. How you rest. How you live your life in Costa Rica.

Together, they created a community where every detail, from a single lamppost to an entire home, is designed around the concept of natural modern: a sense of adventure with style – a combination of modern design, paired with a commitment to Costa Rica’s natural landscapes.

As such, Senderos doesn’t do cookie-cutter. Every building, every structure, and every home is designed specifically for an individual homesite or parcel of land. Everything is customized. No two are alike. And you can’t just choose from a selection of model homes.

The Senderos 2022 Architects Guild is comprised of masters of their craft: seasoned tropical architects who embrace the ideals of modern design and Costa Rica’s unique environmental challenges. Among them are some of the greatest names in Costa Rican architecture, including:

  • Abraham Valenzuela
  • Richard Hammond
  • Daniela Hammond
  • Richard Müller
  • Rina Weisleder
  • Adan de Rubin
  • Scott Woods
  • Benjamin Saxe
  • Victor Cañas

Senderos also welcomes TPA, the community’s landscape architect.

The Senderos Trust


If you’re looking for a community that meets both your lifestyle requirements and your conscience, Senderos is a good place to start

If striking architecture, a prime location, and luxury amenities don’t make the decision for you, then consider that Senderos Tamarindo is the kind of place that makes you feel good to live there.

The Senderos Trust is funded through the community itself: 1% of Senderos sales are donated to the trust, which is managed by the community’s homeowners. In turn, the trust supports the community and greater Tamarindo in two ways:

  • Community Projects: The Senderos Trust donates half its annual gift to Tamarindo, which funnels funds into community projects that benefit the entire town through safety, preservation, and growth.
  • Senderos Social Activities & Amenities: The trust donates the second half of its annual gift to support residents and enhance their experience in Costa Rica. Supported interests include those that they can share with the greater community.

Senderos Tamarindo Real Estate

  • Las Verandas, known for its big ocean views;
  • El Chapitel, a tiny neighborhood of five select homesites;
  • Las Crestas, located high on the hill; and
  • Al Sur, home to south-facing views and its own club, pool, and yoga studio.

Senderos 10-E luxury home for sale Tamarindo

A truly stunning contribution from the famed Richard Müller Architecture, Senderos 10-E sits on a gorgeous corner lot, occupying a gentle slope overlooking commanding views of the Pacific Ocean and Playa Grande, a critical nesting site for leatherback sea turtles.

From the privacy of your terraces, you can watch the waves break and the brilliant sunset, every day and whenever you choose. Your exclusive 180-degree views also extend to the Tamarindo estuary and the mountains to the north and east, where beautiful sunrises lend hue and warmth to your morning vistas.

Every detail is special at Senderos 10-E, but perhaps the home’s most dramatic feature is its expensive swimming pool: suspended by a massive column of parabolic walls, it appears to float in the air outside the great room. Beside it, a huge and shaded patio, which invites you to spend as much time as you can outdoors.

Indeed, this home is truly distinct from almost everything else on the market – even a market as upscale and unique as Tamarindo’s.
