Nosara Retreat is located in one of Costa Rica´s premiere ocean wildlife preserves, nestled between lush tropical gardens, fruit trees and magnificent jungle, just minutes from the beach. It is an ideal setting to host your retreat, a small group gathering or for your own personal vacation. You will lodge in one of four unique houses, each with one-of-a-kind rooms that welcome you with handcrafted wood furnishings and local art. Do yoga or meditation in our covered, open-air wood pavilion, listen to live music or attend community movie nights at our recently constructed outdoor stage, stroll through community gardens, enjoy conversation in cozy sitting areas, or relax in one of our colorful hammocks.
Our gardens and grounds are cultivated with skilled local help and committed volunteers, allowing us to grow an array of fruit trees and vegetables while restoring the local tradition of gardening with the vision of offering fresh, organic, local crops and taking part in the revival of the local culture of food, celebrations and natural healing.
A short walk brings you to the serene, quiet beaches of Playa Pelada. Swim, kayak or body surf in pristine tropical water. Walk for miles along the fine white sand beaches of Nosara collecting shells, observing magical rock formations, watching waves, and exploring tide pools.
At Bocas de Nosara, the river mouth, a brief walking distance away, two rivers, Rio Nosara and Rio Montana, converge and flow into the ocean. Here you can witness a wealth of wildlife and take a fascinating guided tour through this private nature reserve.
Rekindle your spirit. Reconnect with life. Let the simplicity, comfort and heartfelt service at Nosara Retreat embrace you.
