Living off the Land in Nosara, Costa Rica

Costa Rica offers a diverse lifestyle that can suit just about anybody.  The Nosara area in particular is very unique.  You can drive on dirt roads for miles only to come across a luxurious, well appointed mansion.  Many of the visitors to this area enjoy the surfing, while others come for the world famous yoga.  Residents enjoy the private school system that features not only textbook learning, but also a deep dive into the natural world surrounding them.

Nosara Facts

There are about 5,800 people living in Nosara, according to Wikipedia.

There are many unpaved roads in the area, as it is one of the last areas of the country to get investment in infrastructure.  However, expatriates have enjoyed the tranquil setting for quite some time, as it’s a very notorious destination among the insiders for fishing, and it also offers very diverse agriculture.

The area is unique in part because the area along the beach has not been commercialized like other towns.  For example, if you were to visit Tamarindo, the entire beach front is littered with bars and restaurants that have views of the beach.  You won’t find that in Nosara because the majority of it is the Ostional Wildlife Refuge, which breeds Olive Ridley’s and Leatherback sea turtles.)

You’ll find a lot of experienced surfers in the area, with Playa Guiones featuring one of the best sets of waves in the world, not to mention 330 days per year of surfable conditions.  It’s in Playa Guiones where you’ll also find the famous Yoga school known by Yoga buffs across the globe.

The town center is 6 km inland and features a market, post office, pharmacy, churches, police, and schools.  There is also a Bank, a Red Cross and a library, but not a formal hospital at this point.

Beaches of Nosara

There are five communities that are named for the beaches in the area:

  • Playa Nosara
  • Playa Guiones
  • Playa Garza
  • Playa Ostional

It’s these areas where you will find the foreign investment in residences.  You’ll also find hotels and plenty of places to dine.
