    "Clean, comfortable, convenient location in a drop-dead lush setting. What's not to like? Went with diverse mix of young adults, vegans and old man me. ALL had time of their lives. My buddy and I fished while the kids went out on four-wheelers to discover. Friendly locals directed them to a hidden waterfall while we caught 4 sails, 60lb. yellowfin and topped off with an estimated 350lb blue I got on 30-class stand up...on first trip! Ocean off Nosara looks like a NatGeo special. At one point I was able to see manta rays, spinner dolphins, spotted dolphins, turtles, tunas blowing up and 4 kinds of sea birds at the same time. First rate captains, mates and staff. Modern, well maintained tackle as well. Locals incredibly friendly and helpful, especially if you at least make an attempt at Spanish and inquire about their culture. Never felt least bit unsafe, in fact, we stopped at a small town store on way from airport and one of our group left his phone and passport on the counter. While pulling out the owner chased us down to give back. Try that in South Florida! Some recommendations: If you plan on driving less than a couple miles rent a golf cart from the office. Any further rent 4-wheelers from Monkey Rentals, they are easy to learn, a blast to drive and needed for crossing streams, washouts and unpaved roads. Avoid the organic grocery (overpriced and poor produce) and go next door or much better the Super Mercado a few clicks to the south. Awesome, helpful staff, best pineapple I ever ate and local products. Take a 6 or 8hr charter. You will never look at fishing the same. Catch a tuna. We kept one fish and ate tuna steaks, kabobs, tacos and sushi every night. The staff will happily supply a small grill. Eat breakfast and/or lunch at Beachdogs (corvina sandwich) and must, must eat lunch and/or dinner at Pacific Azul. Fresh local ridiculously cheap seafood prepared 4-star in the middle of nowhere! Cool husband, wife owners run the place. Fresh catch sandwiches on home made rustic bread, we ate so much Wahoo they ran out. Big ticket spurge was Garlic Lobster, 3 broiled halves for about $20 US! The best margaritas, no mixes only fresh juices. Oh, and go to the restaurant/bar at the top of Boca Nosara for sunset. Craig, had awesome time man. See ya next year."

  • The most amazing vacation ever!

    "This was an amazing vacation! My wife and I stayed here for 2 weeks for our honeymoon, and loved every minute of it! The house is exactly as the pictures show it, so it is EXCEPTIONALLY nice. Initially we planned on not purchasing the AC for the 2 weeks we were there, but after the first day, we decided it was worth it (very hot and humid). We spent a lot of time in the pool and on the beach while we were here. Agnes, the property manager, was VERY helpful. When we needed advice on places to eat and what activities to do, she made several recommendations, and even went so far as to set up the tours for us. While here, we did the monkey quad ATV tour, which was awesome! We also just rented an ATV from them for a day and toured much of Nosara and neighboring towns ourselves. As long as you follow the road signs and generally stay on main roads, you wont get lost! This is a great recommendation if you want to get to see some amazing sights in Nosara. It includes a short snorkel trip at an awesome beach that made the trip that much better. We also did the Miss Sky Canopy Tour zip lining, which is also a must for the trip! The beach and a couple of small cafes are within walking distance of the house, but they are anywhere between a 15 and 30 minute walk. We rented an ATV for a day, and found that it was very convenient to have. I would recommend renting a car, ATV or bike while you are here, but its not a necessity. I would advise stopping at the market when you first arrive in Nosara if you dont plan on eating out for every meal. We ended up having to make a couple of trips, and each time we went we had to take a taxi (which is $30 total). We also had to take a taxi any time we went on a tour, which was also $30 total. We also rented a surf board for a day, and instead of investing in surf lessons just looked up tips for learning to surf and taught ourselves. People that are already surfing are always more than willing to give you advice as well. US currency is accepted, but only use bills that are $20 and smaller. Most of the places (such as ATV tours, zip lines and several cafes) only accept cash, and they will give you your change in Costa Rican Currency. There is an ATM in Nosara, but I would recommend just bringing plenty of cash with a credit card as a back up plan. There is a safe in the house that is bolted to the wall with a lock on it to keep valuables in. There is wifi, a TV and telephone in the house if you need them. This place is amazing!"

  • Exceptional Vacation

    "Best spot in Nosara. After spending the day all over town: 4-wheeling up the mountain side to see amazing views, kayaking in the mangroves, surfing and eating at Guinoes, coming "home" was a special treat. The pictures here, though beautiful, only provide a tiny sample of the magnificence therein.The views are breathtaking and awesome, giving sight to the ocean, two rivers, and the mountains beyond. Just an amazing spot, and the home itself is absolutely beatuiful and all one could want in a vacation rental, complete with infinity pool from which to watch the sunsets. Carl and Cathy were more than hosts, they became friends while we were living beneath them. They were there as much or as little as we wanted them to be, they answered all of our questions, helped us schedule our excursions, just perfect and companionable hosts. We couldn't have hoped for better, which became our mantra while in Nosara. Every day, every sight, every adventure exceeded our expectations. Must haves: a car or quad to get around the winding dirt roads of Nosara (it's about a 10 minute drive to surf at Guinoes beach, or a short walk through the jungle path to Playa Pelada), a sense of adventure- this is not your cushy resort town, and an open heart because the people of Costa Rica will surely invade it. Must nots: don't overpack! All you need are bathing suits, simple sundresses, shorts and tank tops (even when going out to eat), and a pair of crocs or flip-flops, preferrably crocs due to the rocky, dusty roads and wet environment. That's it, period. No hair dryer, no makeup, no jewelry....pura vida. Best vacation ever. Hands down. Loved the location, loved the people, loved the views, loved the surf, loved the food; there's as much or as little to do as you want. We will definitely go back asap and will even try a yoga class next time!"

  • Spectacular Villa - Amazing Location

    "This was our first trip to Nosara and hopefully not our last. We had never been to Costa Rica before, so we were completely unprepared for what to expect. Flying into Liberia, we hired a driver and drove the 2 hours to Nosara (the last hour on dirt roads). We arrived to find a spectacular villa in a town that is a cross between a surfing village, a new age yoga center and a traditional Tico community. Four Winds are 2 villas on the same property, but not terribly close together. Each villa has a private pool, a high end kitchen, wi-fi, high end cookware, and is beautifully designed and decorated. We marveled at how the owner possibly built and furnished such a house in this location, given its limited dirt road access. The owner was responsive, and his property manager, Rebeca, was terrific. She arranged transportation, rental cars, zip line tours, etc. for us and was available for any questions the entire week. Our entire family took surfing lessons, and my 8 year old daughter is ready to become an ex pat surfer girl in Nosara. The are a number of fantastic restaurants ranging from La Dolce Vita for Italian to La Luna for great food and beautiful sunsets. Given the fantastic kitchen, we also ate dinner at the house a number of nights and enjoyed dining outside, listening to the howler monkeys. The house had a path that made the beach an easy 5 minute walk (there are no beach front properties in Nosara - so this is about as close as you can get). We would make the walk each morning and stop by Coconut Harry's Surf Shop to pick up surf boards, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. We also enjoyed zip lining, kayak tours, and my husband and son took a 4 hour ATV tour to a very cool waterfall where they were able to swim. Given Nosara's location, we recommend first time visitors hire a driver from the airport, or fly on one of the local airlines directly into Nosara. There are plenty of rental car companies in the town. Also, much is said about petty crime in Nosara. We did not experience any problems, but we did use the safe provided in the villa and used common sense. We cannot say enough good things about this house and Nosara, worst part was leaving and flying home to yet more snow!!!"

Nosara Travel Tips

Northwest Central America at Nosara Beach Rentals

For a trip into Central America, consider the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica by renting Nosara beach rentals. Norsara, Costa Rica is located in the Nicoya Canton in the northwest. These Nosara resorts offer a little something for everyone on vacations in Costa Rica. Development of the beach is almost non-existent due to the Ostional Wildlife Refuge.

Ostional Wildlife Refuge near Nosara Resorts

The Ostional Wildlife Refuge was constructed to protect Olive Ridley and Leatherback sea turtle breeding ground. Vacations in Costa Rica can be limited during breeding season with beach closures, but do not worry as there are still plenty of places for surfing or other water sports along the beaches of Guanacaste Province. Nosara resorts can help you set up a scuba diving adventure that leaves from a marina rather than the beach, so that the turtles can remain undisturbed. Fishing tours are also available when you stay at Nosara beach rentals.

Vacations in Costa Rica for Yoga Enthusiasts

Vacations in Costa Rica to Nosara will put you in the heart of yoga education. One of the most famous yoga schools is located in Nosara, just a few minutes from Nosara resorts. Think about waking up to the sunrise in the east, as you sit on the beach facing the Pacific Ocean for your yoga workout.

Handicrafts of Nosara Beach Rentals

Downtown Nosara is a great place to spend the day for anyone who loves to shop. In the town, you have the market, pharmacy, churches, school, library, and many historical buildings. For those who love to shop, the market or retail shops that sell trinkets to remember Costa Rica are available. Bring home handicrafts, woven rugs, or tee-shirts to remember your time spent at Nosara beach rentals. Once you have gotten in all the shopping at the market you could want, head back to your accommodations for a home-cooked meal with fresh fruits and vegetables.
