Retirement in Nosara, Costa Rica- Retiring in Nosara, Costa Rica- Living in Nosara, Costa Rica- Cost of Living in Nosara, Costa Rica
Nosara is a quaint little town desired by many Americans and Europeans. It offers two pristine beaches and great surfing. North American retirees have effectively made Guiones a small extension of the U.S.- although with good taste.
Lacking a centralized town, the area is spread out, and it provides a very relaxed setting. Here, you will find a quiet and secluded community in which to enjoy Nosara's natural surroundings including surfing, swimming and sun bathing, and a world-renown yoga retreat.
This area of Costa Rica is desired for many reasons, one being the varied terrain. Guanacaste is home to volcanos, coffee plantations, cloud forests, jungles, hills, mountains and the tropical Pacific waters. Some of the very best surfing is in Guanacaste. However I have heard that surfing is sometimes restricted on certain beaches to protect the turtles.
