Playa Guiones in the south side of the hotel is only steps away reachable through a couple of nature trials. Considered the main beach of Nosara, it’s one of the of the best surf sports in the country.

Playa Pelada on the north side has many tidal pools and spectacular blow holes during the transition of the tides. Towards the northern part of the bay are boulders with caves and nature trials.

Playa Nosara the most remote of the Nosara beaches, is a long stretch of black-sand beach is backed by mangroves and diverse wildlife. To get there you may walk from Playa Pelada past the rocky cliff to the estuary of the Río Nosara.

Playa Ostional, up the coast, is a wildlife reserve which protects sea turtles. At certain times of the year thousands of sea turtles arrive for laying their eggs into the sand, a true nature spectacle called arribada.

Behind the pristine beach of Playa Nosara the Río Montaña and Río Nosara converge and form a lagoon with large mangrove swamps, that are teeming with maritime life and waterfowl.

To explore this fascinating habitat you can rent kayaks or make a tour on a SUP board to glide silently through the water. Guided river safari tours are also offered with a flat-bottomed boat with electric motor. Contact the front desk to arrange for any tours.
