Playa Tambor is considered to be a relaxing, family friendly atmosphere. The beach is surrounded by a protective bay making it an excellent destination for snorkeling and swimming. The beaches of Tambor are gray in color due to ancient volcanic activity. They gently slope down to the calm and shallow waters. Playa Tambor is home to many beach side resorts and hotels, as well as restaurants, and tourist geared activities. Islas Tortugas, a tourist favorite, is a small tropical paradise located in front of the Tambor Bay. The northern side of Tambor is bordered by the Curu Wildlife Reserve, which is part of a protected natural corridor on the Nicoya Peninsula and home to many species of wildlife.

Located in the Nicoya Peninsula western Pacific coastal lowlands, Tambor offers a relatively dry climate.
