Car: Recommended

In a country virtually synonymous with 'eco-tourism', Nosara, located on Costa Rica's Gold Coast, is ranked 'World's Coolest Surf Town & Best Beaches on Earth' by Travel & Leisure and is on the N.Y. Times list of 'Best Places to Go'. 'It is remote and accessable, basic and grand, for athletes and people that just want to relax.'

With many secluded little places with excellent food and bars with live music, it is an ideal spot to learn to surf as well as a chance to attend the internationally respected Nosara Yoga Institute or one of the other more intimate studios. Nearby, Ostional National Wildlife Refuge was created to protect one of the world's most important nesting beaches for the Olive Ridley Turtle.

To arrive from Liberia allow at least 2 - 3 hours. Best to leave in the morning or by 2:00 p.m. Do not drive from the airport to Nosara at night. The road can be confusing in the dark and if you have trouble it will be difficult to find someone to help, as the beach communities go to bed early. There is a nice Hilton Garden Inn near the airport where you can get your first tropical "fix" at their pool, bar and restaurant. (Their restaurant often closes by 8:00 p.m.)

When leaving Nosara to go to the airport do not cut it close. The road can be closed from an accident and you may be late. Again, best to relax at the Hilton and get the airport shuttle the next morning.

I also recommend taking Gypsy Cab to and from the Liberia airport or hotel - either shared or private. You can arrive and leave with an experienced driver who knows the best places to stop for lunch, bathrooms, beaches, etc. In Nosara you can rent a car.

To arrive from San Jose, allow 4-5 hours.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: Travel Junkies, who have been all around the world, we live in the mountains of Colorado and work to protect both the mountains and ocean habitats, as we appreciate the unique critters that call each place their home. Working as president of our local Audubon Society and other environmental organizations, we are lucky to have the best of both worlds between our hometown in Colorado and our little paradise in Costa Rica. We bought this private group of 6 brand new units so that we would be able to sell 5 of them and keep one for ourselves, and our family and friends to be able to appreciate the magic. Try a rental and you may want to become a part time local like us!

Why Playa Pelada, Costa Rica:
In our many years of travel, we had not come across the perfect beach life - until Playa Pelada. This region inspires us. A mix of fiercely protected land and water with sparse enough development to allow for awesome restaurants, bars, health foods, and anything else to spoil - and the most stunning sunsets imaginable! Since we are conservationists, we are impressed by the pathway's motion activated down lighting, used to keep the hatching turtles on track to the ocean, the use of the laundry's gray water in the garden, and compost pits for us all to use. We feel proud to be a part of sustainable tourism. To top it off, we found the perfect property managers and your gracious, English speaking, Costa Rican/American hosts. They are very caring, intelligent, organized, and a very respected property managers. They will take good care of you, including their knowledge of all local activities for adults and kids, and even car rental discounts.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We purchased this property after our 5th visit to the Nosara area. We looked at many others and decided this one Has it All! Standing on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world right in front of the Villas really grabbed us, then add the new beautiful luxury condos and the peaceful community of Villas las Palmas with its gardens, tiled pool, free laundry room, and security guard. We were sold.
