Nosara is mostly famous for world-renowned surfing and yoga. This is one of the premier locations in Costa Rica for yoga retreats and is what puts Nosara on the map. Nosara has been named one of the top 20 surf spots in the world by National Geographic. The surf and yoga culture brings about a community of expats from around the world and locals that are sophisticated and health conscious. You will find many healthy eating options along with vegan and vegetarian selections in the restaurants.
Nosara has the cleanest water table due to strict no dumping of gray or black water in to the streams. The beaches lack infrastructure which is a nice difference compared to most beach towns in Costa Rica. This is an easy going placid paradise for the person who appreciates the little things in life. Many people come here for a vacation and decide to live here part or full time making this a great place for expats to reside despite the high real estate prices.
The vast white sandy beaches and wilderness in the area will bring upon a sense of peace that may be missing from your life. The town is surrounded by thick, lush rain forest located 6km away from the beach. You can choose from budget hotels, hostels, upscale yoga retreats or vacation rental homes in the Nosara area. Activities besides surfing/yoga include walking/biking trails, jungle mini golf, rock climbing wall and there is even a kid’s camp making this the perfect family get away.
