I spent the morning walking into literally all the stores in Tamarindo. As I was walking back to my hotel, the woman from one from the open kiosks told me to check out Papaya Con Leche. Love, love love my 2 suits, I know I will be the only one on the beach in my town wearing them. The owner... More

I have been to Tamarindo twice now and ended up buying a bikini both times. This store is wonderful and the owner takes the time to find out exactly what you want in a suit. Customizing is done right at the store. I highly recommend this shop.

They have so much variety for you to choose from. I have a small cup size, but wearing one of their bikinis it instantly gave me cleavage without any padding...I was amazed! I had so much fun and it really boosted my self confidence. Totally recommend this store! Really welcoming and professional staff. Thanks girls! :)

Was shopping to bring something home for my daughter. Don't know much about women's beach wear but I do know that I don't like paying for overpriced brand names that can be purchased at home. This isn't that kind of place. Everything seemed reasonably priced and not big name brands. All very tasteful and original styles. Great stylish beach wear... More

I was looking for a specific type of swimsuit, one with a loose tankini top. They happily customized a top for me, for a decent price. I couldn't have been more pleased! I got several compliments on the fit and uniqueness of the design. I can't wait until my next trip to Tamarindo. I plan to make this shop my... More

I was very happy to find this swim suit shop near my hotel. I wanted a flattering two piece and I found what I wanted. The owner would consult me on a few suits and steered me to the most flattering style. I also wanted more padding and she was able to sew it in within a couple minutes. I... More

We had a blast shopping in this store while in Tamarindo. They make custom bikinis but also have coverups, t-shirts, shoes and more. I decided after leaving the area that I couldn't live without their custom shoes. You can change the laces and they can go with any outfit. I sent an e-mail and Aly quickly responded. She kept me...
