Capitán Suizo Beachfront Boutique Hotel

Capitán Suizo is a four-star boutique hotel located beachfront on Playa Tamarindo, one of the most beautiful beaches on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica for swimming and surfing.

The hotel name “Capitán Suizo” partly comes from the small island “El Capitán” in front of the hotel and partly from the fact that the family running the hotel is from Switzerland (“Suizo”).

In 1992, the owners of Capitán Suizo, Ursula and Ruedi Schmid, left Switzerland and settled in Costa Rica with their two children in search of new challenges and adventures. They fell in love with a pristine land, full of tropical vegetation and beautiful native trees, right on the beach of a small fishing village. After three years of “handmade” construction, the dream of a small jewel in touch with nature and in harmony with the philosophy of this country and its people was born.
