Nestled along the caribbean coast of the country, the laid back town of Puerto Viejo de Talamanca lies patiently in wait for the arrival of inspired travelers. The eclectic region is home to a diverse array of wildlife harbored by white sand beaches, lush tropical rainforest, and a community oriented towards preservation of its natural resources.
Puerto Viejo is a place like no other that we have encountered, a unique combination of natural paradise and diverse culture producing an energy that can only be described as 'pura vida'. A destination that continues to call us back, long after our first visit nearly 20 years ago, we're confident it will do the same for visitors who open their hearts and minds to this magical place.
Located on the Guanacaste coast, Nosara is a blend of nature and culture producing a destination like no other in Costa Rica. Boasting three unique beaches, the region is a popular destination for surfers and yogis, a mix of expats and locals, and a haven for nature lovers and beach bums with plenty of lazy palms, soft sands, and epic waves for everyone.
Heading inland, mangroves and rivers combine with rainforest canopy, home to monkeys, caymen, and countless species of waterfowl. Amongst this diversity of flora and fauna, residents and visitors to Nosara have discovered a lifestyle of well being and self preservation through their interaction with the natural world around them. Join us for a journey to this magical destination as we experience Pura Vida with a celebration of life in paradise.
Having been asked: If you could only go to Costa Rica once in a lifetime, and visit a single destination, where would you go? The answer is simple. Osa Penninsula is the ultimate escape offering its unspoiled landscape and pristine beaches to nature lovers, adventure seekers, and anyone with a desire to truly get away from it all. Once described by National Geographic as one of the most biologically intense places on the planet, Osa harbors thirteen unique ecosystems, half of the species in Costa Rica, and 2.5% of the planet's biodiversity!
While a natural paradise, it remains one of the most fragile ecosystems in the world in need of the utmost care, protection, and respect from visitors and residents alike. A place where jaguars roam the rainforest, scarlet macaws rule the skies, and humpback whales feed off the coast on their migration north and south, Osa is our Eden.
