Playa Nosara

Getting Here and Around

From Nicoya, drive south, almost to Sámara, but take the very first road signed for Nosara, 1 km (½ mile) south of the big gas station before Sámara. This high road is rough for about 8 km (5 miles), but there are bridges over all the river crossings. When you join up with the beach road near Garza, you still have a very bumpy 10 km (6 miles) to go. The roads into Nosara are in really bad shape, so a 4WD vehicle is definitely recommended. Budget about one hour for the trip. You can also fly directly to the town of Nosara on daily scheduled SANSA and Nature Air flights, or take an air-conditioned shuttle van from San José. A couple of major rent-a-car companies have offices in Playa Guiones.
