  • We were in went in playa Pelada right in front of La Luna restaurant. The beach is beautiful. There are many choices of restaurants. It is close to other beautiful and San Juanillo, Samara and Carrillo beaches. The street is made of stone.

  • Spent a week taking surfing lessons with the Safari Surf School on Playa Guinoes and hope to be back next year. It is just a 5 minute walk from Olas Verdes Hotel or El Manglar Restaurant.  more »
  • Great long, shelving beach with both firm and soft sand. Only drawback is the lack of shade. A good 'walking beach', apart from at high tide when you have to walk on the dry, very soft sand.  more »

Where to stay in Nosara
