Nosara

4.6
Along with its agricultural and fishing heritage, Nosara stands as one of the oldest expatriate communities in the country. Despite this, the scenic beach area has been left with little development directly on it, with much of it given over to a wildlife refuge protecting native populations of olive ridley and leatherback sea turtles. The three main beaches have long been frequented by surfers from around the world, while yoga retreats have gradually become another main source of recreation for locals and those on holiday in Nosara.

Where to stay in Nosara

In Nosara, you can either stay inland to immerse yourself in the surrounding jungle, or head to the coast for some beach vibes. Around the town of Nosara itself, a short drive from the shore, you can choose from a handful of yoga retreats and jungle lodges, serving as comfortable, eco-friendly places to stay. For something even closer to the coast, look for a mid-range or luxury hotel along Playa Guiones or Playa Pelada.
