Nosara: Costa Rica’s Sweet Surf Spot (Video)
Nosara, Costa Rica is becoming increasingly popular among traveling surfers, because of its more laid-back, relaxed atmosphere than its bustling neighbor to the north, Tamarindo, while boasting world class surf almost all year long.
Most surfers visiting Nosara head straight for Playa Guiones, which is, hands down, one of the most consistent breaks in Costa Rica. Playa Guiones is a swell magnet and Punta Guiones (at the South end of the beach) juts farther out into the Pacific than many other points in Costa Rica. Which means Playa Guiones picks up both North and South facing swells bringing surfable waves over 300 days a year.
Like it so much you want to move here? So did others, and the result is a growing expat community. Thankfully, most seem intent on keeping development and over-building to a minimum.
