I tried to locate St. Paul's this past Sunday. I was at the plaza and did not see a sign or cross. Two locals said "cerrado" meaning closed. We were very disappointed.

My dear friend. I am sorry that we have not found us. It's strange what happened to you but I assure you that we are open every Sunday, because it is our main day of worship. I hope you visit us on another occasion. God bless you. Rev. Pedro Méndez More

A very nice little church in the middle of Tamarindo. I felt very welcome by priest Pedro and his lovely family even though I was not part of an Episcopal community. The service is held in English at 10 am each Sunday. Great place to seek Gods presence in this town.

We attended the service last Sunday morning having traveled the short distance from our condo in Flamingo. It was so nice to share in the liturgy of our tradition and meet Rev. Mendez and his family. It was also great to meet international visitors joining in the Anglican tradition. We will return for tomorrow's Sunday morning service.

A great little place to praise God in paradise. The priest Hector and his family are wonderful people, welcoming, loving and doing Gods work in a place that needs it. Thank you for welcoming us and making us feel at home.

I was able to attend church here twice during my two weeks in Tamarindo, and loved it! My favorite part was the people - Pedro, the priest, and everyone else were very friendly and welcoming, and after the service there were cookies and coffee for a brief social time. Very relaxed. Standard Episcopal service in English, with some guitar music... More
