Playa Pelada is a beautiful, small, quiet beach where the locals hang out on the weekends, listen to live music and prepare native foods, share some serious volleyball or futbol. Also here you can find the local fishermen who can take you out in a small pong a if you did not want one of the larger fishing boats. And, A 5 minute beach walk takes you to playa Guiones for fabulous surfing.
We boast a fantastic zip line 'MISS SKY'. a great adventure for the whole family to soar over the trees and see some of our fabulous natural sights and animals.
One of the most popular surfing beaches, Playa Guiones, is only a 10 minute beach walk from our home. In this area also are shops, banks, yoga studios, massage and surf shops, transpiration rentals and lots of restaurants to choose from.

Year Purchased: 1990
About the owner: We came from the North Bay of San Francisco,vacationed in Costa Rica in 1989, fell in love with the country and NOSARA, gave up our plans to retire in Baja,Mexico, and moved here in 1992.
The warm climate year around, the loving nature of the Costa Ricans, and abundance of wildlife in a VERY rural area just suited us.
Why the Owner Chose Nosara: Playa Pelada is not the main surfing beach although there is some surfing here at various times. We like the ambience of a beautiful spot just steps from the waters edge yet private and peaceful. Location is great as a 15 minute walk takes us to Playa Guiones with all of its amenities and action.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: Our property has two road frontages, one at the top of the hill with great ocean views and the other at the lower end just steps from the sand and surf.
