Bro-meme-ian Rhapsody ,

Amazing show!

There are a lot of shows that start with a mission and lose their way, and I can say after listening to Tamarindo since the beginning, they have stuck to their message and continue to deliver quality episodes. That's something I appreciate...Reliability and quality. 10/10 highly recommend!

CCR38 ,

Buena!!!

As a Hispanic woman who grew up being spoken to in Spanish but manuvers in life thinking on English and speaking in Spanish, I love the mix on the show from the talented ladies! Love the stories and can relate to all of it ;) We are here listening!❤️

WSTM! ,

Love, love

Love, love, and love!
