Nosara has a wealth of options to keep the traveler entertained. The main draws are the areas beaches- Playa Guiones for surfing, Playa Pelada for swimming, fishing and amazing sunset restaurants. Playa Nosara, Ostional and San juanillo are locaed to the north. Playa Garza is a relaxed fishing village with seafood restaurants fronting the sand. Ostional is known for its great beach break for surfing and the monthly migration or 'Arribada 'of the thousands of turtles to come and lay their eggs- an amazing sight not to be missed.
Nosara is also home to the world renowned Nosara Yoga Institute which offers teacher training courses and yoga of all stripes. There are a myriad of other yoga and healthy living related outfits offering classes, seminars, retreats and private services. Spas, massage therapists and personal trainers are at your disposal. Nosara hosts a dozen surf schools and was reviewed by the NY Times as THE place to learn to surf. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/30/travel/waves-and-wildlife-in-costa-rica.html?_r=0
There are plenty of dining options spread throughout Nosara. Seafood restaurants specializing in the locally caught catch of the day, Costa Rican Cuisine, Italian, American, French, Mexican, Thai, Sushi, Gelato, and even private chefs available to cater to your needs. Some personal favorites are Rancho Tico in Nosara Centro for typical Costa Rican cuisine and the best steaks, pizza and ceviche in town. La Luna for oceanfront mediterranean cuisine and Kaya Sol for breakfast and affordable healthy options. Seekret Spot Gelato run by an Iltalian surfer expat is also a must. You will not run out of options for cuisine and that may be the toughest decision you make while on vacation- where to eat next?
Nosara also offers a local airport, Red cross, tourist and local police, shuttle and taxi services, many rental car agencies, ATV and dune buggy rentals, bicycle and surfboard rentals and local buses as well as a daily bus to San Jose. A car is not necessary and a lot of travelers enjoy renting an ATV for the week to explore the mountains and beaches.
The Nosara River (Rio Nosara) runs through the town and meets the ocean at the north end of Playa Pelada. Here there is a nature reserve to view the amazing and varied wildlife of the area.(Lagarta Lodge is one of the best options in town for sunset cocktails and is perched on the cliffs overlooking the river and Playa Nosara). You can rent kayaks or stand up paddleboards through a local operator to explore the river up close. The river mouth or 'La Boca' as the locals call it is a great spot for surf fishing and can also produce barreling waves.
Sportfishing is also a main draw of the area. Most of the boats depart from Playa Garza and offer a myriad of options for deep sea or inshore fishing. Trips can be arranged through tour operators or just asking at one of the restaurants on the beach in Playa Garza.
There is a brand new skatepark and climbing wall as well as a tennis club that are sure to become main attraction for the area. Also one of the largest Zip lines in the country is operated by Miss Sky Canopy tours and cannot be missed.
There is so much to do that you may have to extend your vacation. Casa Ventana is available for long term rental and is managed by a local family that is more than willing to assist you in making your vacation the most enjoyable! Maid service, childcare and personal chefs are all available- just ask.
We hope you enjoy your stay in Nosara- (impossible not to!) and hope you choose the affordable and ideally located Casa Ventana as your home base.
