Pangas Beach Club Tamarindo Costa Rica –

Whenever a new restaurant opens up in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, local residents are keen to try something new. And whenever a new beachfront restaurant opens, the locals are very excited. Since Pangas Beach Club in Tamarindo opened almost two years ago, residents not only frequent the restaurant for its savory dishes, but also love to watch the beautiful Tamarindo sunsets beachfront, tucked away from the high season crowds. Pangas Beach Club also happens to be one of my favorite places to photograph a wedding in Tamarindo.

To top it all off, Pangas Beach Club has a uber relaxing environment, thanks to beautiful design and the handmade, locally sourced wood furniture from the ever-so-talented Muriel at Mu Designs. To say that Muriel is Pangas’ secret gem would be an understatement. And did I mention that Muriel also happens to be a beautiful surfer and drop-dead-gorgeous blonde goddess?!?! No wonder I had such a fun and seemingly effortless mini photo session with Muriel at Pangas a couple of weeks ago! Mu, as she affectionately known, was totally in her element, beachfront in Tamarindo amongst her beautiful pieces of furniture. Simply stunning- the furniture and woman!

Pura Vida,


P.S. I just had to include a couple of photos from the interior photo shoot I did at Casa del Pasillo in Tamarindo – beautiful pieces by Mu Designs as well!
