Playas de Nosara area is unique to Costa Rica . What began as
a planned residential community nearly 30 years ago has evolved
into one of the more attractive, peaceful, yet fully serviced,
and even “eclectic” destinations on the Nicoya Peninsula,
if not the entire country. This attraction has a lot to do with
the incredible combination of qualities found here. We offer you
this unique combination to enjoy.
or beaches; (We even have white or black sand beaches!)
Endless surf or calm waters for swimming

the hammock on your private porch…while we prepare your
next meal of fresh fish, steaks, pasta, or something special

community is also part of the Ostional National Wildlife Refuge
which includes the huge white sand beach of Guiones, where you
can surf “the most consistent waves in Costa Rica”;
The quiet, calm cove of Pelada; The mouth of the Rio Nosara,
where you can begin your amazing river tour ; Further north
are Playa Nosara itself and Playa Ostional, one of the main
nesting beaches for the Olive Ridley Turtle . And to complete
this perfect selection, just to the South is Playa Garza, a
natural reef-protected marina where you can find sportfishing
or take a sunset sail .
we even have some of the best weather, being in a tropical dry
forest, itself unique in the world. This means “30-40%
more sunshine than most of Costa Rica ”, a less-humid
dry season and a pleasant green season that brings just enough
rain to simply keep us green!
truly is “the best of both worlds”.
