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.
