Nosara (The Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica)
Set a short distance back from the sandy beach, just outside town, this is a lovely laid back eco-oriented hotel with good restaurant (mainly vegetarian food), juice bar, large gardens, good size pool and games area.
Learn to surf (easy to hire equipment locally), visit Nosara nature reserve, riding, boat trip, canopy tour, relax.
24 rooms - 10 standard 'Coco' rooms and 14 bungalows set in blocks around the pool. None of the rooms have a sea view but the sea is a 2 minute walk away. All rooms have a terrace and Bungalows are slightly larger with an additional sofa bed.
