Nosara, Costa Rica

My family spent 4 days in Nosara in June.  The rain impacted only our kayaking trip where we had to turn around because of the downpour.  We did manage to take surfing lessons for 2 days, which was wonderful for us, all first-timers.  Great food, really nice people and because the road to get there is not paved and rocky, not many tourists visit so the area is quiet.

This is a great hotel, near the beach and has everything you need. Good for families too. Our kids liked it a lot. And great food!

Harmony Hotel Yoga Studio

Harmony Hotel Yoga Studio

One of the coolest yoga studios you will ever go to.  Open air.  They offer all types of yoga, even aerial.  And you get screaming monkeys nearby adding their own sounds.

Namaste. You can come here just for the yoga and have an amazing experience.

We rented from here.  (our instructor brought us here)  Key thing is this place is really really close to ocean.

Our Surfing Instructors

Our Surfing Instructors

We highly recommend Lau Ra and JP.  They taught our entire family, getting us all up and riding waves.  I recommend at least two lessons to get comfortable with the experience if you are a newbie like we all were.  Contact Lau Ra at her Facebook page.

Definitely look up Lau Ra if you want to learn how to surf in Nosara!

What a thrill for all of us!

Many stands along the road as you walk to the ocean.  Nice jewelry, t-shirts, the usual stuff you expect to see.  All really reasonably priced.

The vendors are so nice and friendly.

We had our tour stopped short because of rain but the bit we did was great. And we saw a crocodile (from a distance).
