At Nosara B & B Retreat, we encourage the natural growth of the jungle, by adding native fruit trees, flowers, and vines, wherever possible, without altering the wild character of the land. As a "green", ecologically minded hotel, we use biodegradable cleaning products, and a gray water system for irrigation. We compost food and garden waste to create rich and organic compost for our plants, which include mango, papaya, lemon, star-fruit, and Guanabana. We are also actively engaged in the recycling program in Nosara, that repurposes glass, plastic, and tin. By burning our scrap cardboard and paper, and mixing them with other natural waste products, we create rich, organic fertilizer for the gardens.
The nursery at the Nosara B & B Retreat produces seedlings of local plants, flowers, and fruit trees, to distribute about the property. In addition to the aforementioned fruit plants, our "green" hotel also offers cilantro, cherry tomatoes, string beans, and squash. And we are experimenting with many organic seed varieties to add even more variety. Our bed & breakfast is increasingly providing more food from our gardens, directly to our guests.
