NOSARA, COSTA RICA

VISIT US IN PLAYA GUIONES NORTH, DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF THE BEACH ENTRANCE

The surf culture is strong in Nosara, Costa Rica. Unlike most surf towns around the world, Nosara is a real life time machine, taking travelers back to the town imagined by expat explorers in the 1960s. 

You won’t find high-rise condos, fast-food restaurants, or late-night beach bars along these Costa Rica beaches. Just 200 meters from The Gilded Iguana, Playa Guiones, the region’s most famous surfing beach, is an unspoiled landscape protected by environmental laws. From sunrise to sunset, 365 days a year, the town paddles out to surf the dependable waves spread out across the expansive beach. From beginners to pros, Playa Guiones makes room for everyone.

Our location offers the most consistent beach breaks in the world, breaking well at all times of the year. Beyond the swell, our eco-friendly, all-natural lifestyle rounds out appeal for yoga retreats and a culinary scene that offers freshly-grown produce and just-caught seafood.

If you’re seeking balance in your busy life, you’ll find it in Nosara.
