Getting Around: Nosara which is really comprised of two distinct villages is located in the North Pacific Province of Guanacaste roughly 266 kilometers West of San Jose on the Nicoya Peninsula. The climate is characterized as tropical dry forest with long sandy beaches and arid woodland. The “dry” season begins in mid-November and runs typically through April. The rains begin in early May and build steadily to an intensive rainy season for August, September and October. The Nosara area is also home to several large cattle ranches including Rancho Rio Montana.
The Village of Nosara lies along the Rio Nosara and is a traditional Tico town centered around a soccer field. You will also find the local airport as well as the school, church, bus station and a handful of local restaurants.
Nosara at the Beaches lies directly behind the main beach: Playa Guionnes. Located directly adjacent to Playa Guionnes are many of the great bars, restaurants and shops found in the area.
