Recent Nosara reviews

  • Tropical paradise, the essence of PURA VIDA

    "I echo the sentiments of all the other reviewers as far as how special a place Familia Feliz is for your Costa Rica destination. The room, the outdoor shower and kitchen and the staff are awesome. There is plenty to do here to fill a week without leaving the Nosara area. I wanted to fill you in on a wonderful adventure we had on our last day in Nosara. We had planned to hike in the Wildlife Refuge (Lagarta Lodge) because I and my family love to discover wildlife especially birds, but found out the day before that it was closed for a week and wouldn't reopen until after we had left. So we chanced a visit to Fishing Nosara because they advertised eco-tours on their sign. We signed up mostly because we found out that the guide was a lifelong local and he would take you to a farm for a Costa Rican lunch. Well his name was Javier and he grew up along the Nosara river just outside Nosara town, a property where his mother still lives. His brother Eduardo and his family live on a farm nearby and that was where lunch was served. As we walked along Javier showed us an ancient Indian burial ground, a hidden waterfall, he picked fruit off trees and peeled it for us (mangoes, starfruit--he even cracked a coconut and let us drink the water and eat the soft fleshy "apple" inside). He pointed out birds in foliage we would never have seen, and lizards on a branch overhanging the river that when he shook the branch they fell in the water and then proceeded to walk on water to get to shore. I've seen this feat on nature shows, I never thought I would see it in real life! But the lasting memory was to have Eduardo show us his farm and then take us into his home for the most fabulous lunch imaginable. It was chicken and potatoes, pork, rice, beans, special hot peppers, salad, tortilla shells still hot from the frypan, and cheese-the most glorious cheese that they made just for us that morning--I know I'm missing things because the table was loaded with food. I couldn't begin to describe the wonderful feeling I get when I think about the kindness these people showed us. I don't know if you know the family I speak of, but if you do and you see them when you're at FF, please thank them again for us, and be sure to recommend this tour to your other guests if they are eco-minded (it can be done on horseback as well). This was just one of the wonderful people we met while in the area. If you want to immerse yourself and live like a local, this is the place. PURA VIDA"

  • Beautiful House Near Beach

    "My husband and 6 -year-old son and I stayed here for a wonderful week and a half in March. The house was comfortable and well-equipped for our family, and felt airy with its high ceilings. We loved the huge front porch, and spent a lot of time there while our son played in the pool, which he absolutely loved. The gardens are pretty, with pink bougainvillea and red hibiscus, and a good bit of shade. It was an easy walk to the lovely beach, where we usually saw only a few other people (some of whom we befriended). We really appreciated the peacefulness of the house to come home to after finishing our activities (hiking, swimming, snorkeling, surfing, horseback riding, etc.) The owner communicated well, and made us feel well-informed and welcome as we were planning the trip. I would definitely recommend this place (which my son calls "paradise")!"

  • Perfect Little Spot for a Couple !!

    "We have traveled to Costa Rica extensively and have just bought a home in the Nosara area. On our last trip we were lucky enough to pick this gem of a location. The place is cozy and comfortable and the closeness to the beach is perfect. The pink sand and snorkel ready tidal pools are in the backyard and a group of wild horses strolled by every morning while grazing. A little walk or a short golf cart ride puts you in the middle of everything, but you are far enough away to really enjoy tranquility. Evidently, Susan Sarandon owns a lot next to the property. It is not hard to see why. Kudos to Rich and his wonderful wife for a great stay :)"

  • Stephanie, Asheville, NC

    "Twelve of our family members stayed at Villa Sonita. We couldn't have had a more perfect vacation and Villa Sonita was the backdrop for it all! It was private and secure, but close to everything. We had plenty of space in the house for privacy, but could also come together when we wanted to. Most mornings we sat on the back porch and watched the display of wildlife and in the evenings at least 15 geckos would gather around the outdoor lights to eat bugs. There is a lime tree in the yard that had fruit and a mango tree in the front that provided us with many snacks. From the house we could easily walk to town, restaurants, the beach and the Nosara Yoga Institute. In between those activities we always came back to the pool to cool off. It was an amazing trip for all of us and I can't wait to go back!!"

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.
