Costa Rica Bedfinder Advocates Nosara Vacation Rentals For Intrepid Travelers
If your idea of a chill-out vacation is beach-strolling, shell-picking and sunset-gazing, all in a little quiet world of your own, then Nosara may be the right option for your Costa Rican escape.
“It is a bit out of the way, but Nosara is well worth the effort,” says Costa Rica Bedfinder’s founder, Elaine Turner, who likens Nosara to a paradise for the down-to-earth type. Indeed, Nosara is one of those low-key destinations that see the same visitors quietly returning time and again, she says.
The region of Nosara is one of Costa Rica's best environmentally protected regions. More than two-thirds of its beaches are protected wildlife reserves, which translates into clean and natural beaches.
The steady, year-round temperature of between 77° and 95° F (25° and 32° C) makes Nosara an ideal all-season getaway, according to Elaine.
Imagine miles upon miles of spectacular white sand beaches with stunning sunsets, one of the largest nesting grounds in the world for Olive Ridley turtles, the sunniest and clearest skies in the country, and a naturalist's haven with hundreds of species of birds. For yogis and students, Nosara even features its own Yoga institute.
Whether it is due to the consistent surfing waves of Playa Guiones, or the tranquility of Playa Pelada, it is not unusual for visitors to choose not to leave the area but spend their entire vacation in Nosara, enjoying their own private beach villas, the beautiful beaches, the quaint villages with a wide selection of restaurants and bars. Moreover, the two beaches and villages are just a few minutes walk apart along a nature trail.
With over sixty Nosara rentals in her online portfolio, Elaine thinks the area offers unparalleled value for money for those who simply want a comfortable beach home with a walk-to -beach location, facility to cook up a simple meal as well as the option of eating out without getting into a car.
According to her, the beach houses on Playa Guiones and Pelada beach homes are currently rented for under US$1500 per week, and those without a pool are priced as low as $750 per week in the low season.
“You simply cannot find such value in more mainstream destinations like Manuel Antonio, Jaco or Tamarindo,” she says.
Driving time to Nosara from San Jose is between 5 to 6 hours depending on weather and road condition, and between 2 to 3 hours if coming from Liberia.
“Nosara is not an easy place to get to, but it is well worth the effort if you are looking for great-value accommodation and pristine beaches without the noise and crowd,” she reiterates.
