THE NOSARA AREA
THINGS TO DO
There are lots of other ways to fill ones day in the Nosara area.
The Miss Sky Canopy tour was recently constructed towards the town of Nosara, which boasts the world longest zip line above the forest. They can accommodate people of all ages and capabilities, and are very safe and professional. There are kayaking tours up the Rio Nosara, horseback riding along the beach, turtle watching, bird watching, and ATVing. For those more geared toward relaxing, there are massages and spa treatments in Guiones. You can pack in as much or as little as you want.
Surf is one of the biggest draws for us in Nosara. Playa Guiones has miles of world class surf. Because the beach has so many peaks, you can find both rights and lefts, as well as steeper waves for shortboarding and slower waves for longboarding. The swell is consistent year round, though it gets larger and more effected by the weather during the summer. There are lots of surf schools and surf lessons in town, and it’s a nice place to get your feet wet (literally) if you are a beginner. There are many places in town to rent boards, although we store our collection at the house and are happy to rent out our boards to visitors.
Just a little north is Ostinal, best known for its popularity amongst turtles as a place to have their babies. However the surf break is solid and steep, definitely a notch up from the softer break of Guiones. You need to cross the Rio Nosara to get there which can be a little exciting during the wet season, so best to check the water depth first. Keep your eyes open for pink Roseate Spoonbills hanging out in the river.
Lots of people come to Nosara explicitly for the yoga. The renowned Nosara Yoga Institute offers different types of classes multiple times a day, as well as more extensive teacher trainings. The instructors are top-notch, and the on-site courses take places in an indoor/outdoor studio in the forest. They often hold early morning classes on the beach as well.
