Nosara's Playa Guiones Nosara

Nosara is located in Costa Rica’s beautiful Guanacaste province, in the Nicoya Peninsula, Nosara is approximately 100 miles west of San Jose, on the coastal road that connects Tamarindo to Samara. This area is famous for its clear skies and phenomenal weather. Constant sea breezes cool the landscape, and legendary sunsets will enchant you. A little bit farther than other, more developed, Costa Rican coastal towns, Nosara’s pristine beauty will capture you the moment you arrive and reward your extra effort with its incomparable magic.

Nosara Wildlife Nosara's Playa Ostional

Pristine, unspoiled, tropical beauty is what best describes Nosara. Imagine miles upon miles of spectacular white sand beaches. This is where the very best of Costa Rica comes alive: stunning sunsets, one of the largest nesting grounds in the world for the Olive Ridley turtle, the sunniest skies in the country, birds, iguanas, monkeys–a naturalist’s haven.

Explore on the jungle trails, surf in any of several world class breaks, swim in gentle coves, comb the beach for an infinite variety of shells, play in fisherman’s paradise, relax in a hammock surrounded by tropical jungle where monkeys play in the trees and parrots, toucans, wild orchids, bromeliads and other exotic plants and wildlife abound.
