Commonly known as “No shirt, no shoes Nosara”, this town has a great vibe, filled with friendly locals. Surf, take a yoga class, read a book (you can pick up a used one at the local DVD rental shop), lounge by the pool, check out the local music/bar scene, sample the amazing restaurants (how did these chefs end up in Nosara?), and try to spot the howler monkeys as they pass through the treetops.
The Playas de Nosara area includes the beach-side communities of Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada, as well as the puebla of Nosara. Nosara is in the province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica, on the Pacific coast of the Nicoya Peninsula. Nosara is known widely for its world class surfing and Yoga instructor institute. If you enjoy watching wildlife you may want to visit the Ostional Wildlife Refuge, which helps redevelop the Leatherback sea turtle population.
