We like to consider Playa Nosara, Guanacaste as our surf paradise and one of Costa Rica’s best kept secrets – a hidden paradise with no paved roads to lead you directly to this destination. As one of the 6 Blue Zones in the world, the community at Playa Nosara is characterised by a population that believes in maintaining active lifestyles, fostering low stress environments, natural diets and spending lots of quality time with friends and family.
Eco-Friendly, Yoga and Artistic Surf Paradise
Playa Nosara has a tranquil atmosphere for tourists who want to really get away from it all and focus on surfing and relaxing in this romantically remote paradise. It is considered one of the “greenest zones” in Costa Rica with a large focus on organic production and sustainability with it as a home to many surfers, artists and yogis. Often referred to as a laid back town with good vibes, the protected area is home to consistently large tides, white sand beaches and very little disruption from lack of beachfront property. We start off our beginner surfers at Playa Guiones, where the quality and consistency of the waves makes this beach an ideal place to surf, sometimes up to twice a day.
