Welcome to Playas Pochote & Tambor
The beaches begin 14km south of Paquera, at the mangrove-shrouded, fishing pueblo of Pochote, and stretch for about 8km southwest to Tambor. The two villages are divided by the narrow estuary of the Río Pánica.
It should also be said that there is one rather conspicuous all-inclusive megaresort in the Tambor area – Hotel Barceló Playa Tambor (its garish entrance looks like the UN). The huge place has a convention center and golf course, but once you're in the pueblo, you won't even know it's there.
