Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Casa Bonita several times over the past 3 1/2 years. Each time has been better than the last! The staff at NPR is excellent and always looking out for their guests and we are very impressed with their concern for details. We have recommended this property to friends and relatives and several have visited with us. Families with younger children may want to request the first floor unit. Casa Bonita is the newest house on the property and is well maintained. The house has always been clean and the staff takes great care of the property. The pool is close by for a quick dip and the location of Casa Bonita is fantastic. It is close to all the amenities in Playa Guiones. The mini-mart is right next door, the bank is around the corner, great restaurants are within walking distance and the beach is a short walk down the road. When we have our kids with us, we usually rent a golf cart to get around. We have always felt safe and secure in this house. We are looking forward to our next visit... it can't come soon enough!

nosara rental made through CCA

  • 4 of 5

The location was magnificent and rural. The mountains and forests and beaches and fishing were outstanding! The roads leave a lot of room for improvement The food was great and the staff was very helpful. Everything in the house was clean and tidy and worked well, but my wife thought it was more 'rustic' than she expected. I would go back in a heartbeat but it would likely be a 'boys' trip.

nice 2 bed 2 bath villa with large tables inside and on patio. Tile throughout with a full kitchen. there are about a dozen villas in the woods but they are pretty private because of the layout. heavily wooded area off the road. rooms are clean and the villass feel very safe. about 1/2 mile waalk to the beach or short car ride. great mile long beach big waves for surfing and a large sandbar for beginners. Nosara fishing is great and they pick you up right at the villa. this is a thumbs up.

Car: not necessary

Nosara, Costa Rica is one of the oldest expatriate communities in the country, as well as a world-class fishing and surfing destination. It's population is a blend of local Ticos, long-term foreign residents, and a constant flow of tourists from all corners of the globe. Nosara Paradise Rentals has welcomed guests from Australia, the Far East, Russia, England, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Argentina, Canada, and all over the United States.

So much interest abroad in yoga, surfing, fishing, and ecotourism has turned Nosara into a crossroads of the world. Modern developments share fences with untouched ancient rainforests. The nightlife is full of interesting bars, carnivals, dances, fiestas, and rodeos (see picture) where the meeting of different cultures takes on a festival tone.

Unlike most coastal tourist towns Nosara lacks large-scale development directly on the beach as much of it consists of the Ostional Wildlife Refuge. The official town center is located 6 km inland from the beach. Within "Nosara town" is the market, pharmacy, post office, churches, school, police station, public library and Red Cross clinic. There is a Banco Popular branch located in the small commercial area near Playa Guiones.

Yoga Nosara is also the location of the world-famous Nosara Yoga Institute, which coincidentally is our backyard neighbor in Guiones Beach. Nosara Paradise Rentals has a secluded path straight to the treetop studio. In addition to the NYI, nearby facilities like Blue Sky and Yoga House have contributed to the area's reputation as a yoga destination.

The food is a blend of world styles, yet is truly 'set-off' by the pristine quality of the local foodstuffs...the cleanliness of the water, soil, and air contributes to food so flavorful and pure that words fail to describe the taste. This entire area is a 'Blue Zone' meaning no unnatural pesticides or industrial chemicals are permitted.

Costa Ricans (affectionately called 'Ticos') are a warm, welcoming, industrious, friendly group of people who are very dedicated to their families. Virtually all of the population is Christian with a strong majority following the Catholic faith. A large segment of the population is bilingual.

Nosara and the nearby towns (Esperanza, Pelada, Garza, Guiones) are 30 km off of the main paved highway, and the secluded nature of the land has created a lifestyle that centers around clean living and strong family values. Major crime is virtually non-existent and the local economy offers well-paying jobs in both the tourism industry and traditional crafts such as farming, woodcraft, and commerce. The citizens of Nosara are very accommodating to tourism and exhibit the "Pura Vida!" spirit in their everyday lives.
