Nosara Activities

Surf, fish, explore and relax.

The surf, the sun and the environment offer a variety of leisure activities, including yoga classes at the Nosara Yoga Institute, surfing lessons at the Nosara Surf Shop, Nosara Surf Academy, Nosara Tico Surf School or the Safari Surf School as well as spa treatments at Tica Massage, Harmony Hotel, and Spaci. Visitors to the area also can partake in ocean/river kayaking tours on River Nosara or horseback tours through the lush jungle with the guidance of Boca Nosara Tours, Iguana Expeditions and Drifter’s Kayaking.

Sports fishing enthusiasts can head to the sea. On the west coast of Costa Rica, there are inshore and offshore reefs that house Sailfish, Blue, Black and Striped Marlin, Doradod (Mahi Mahi), and schools of yellow fin tuna that are present most of the year. Reel Deal Sport Fishing with Captain Carlos Barrantes provides full- and half-day charters aboard an equipped Classic 26-foot Mako Rampage. The charter includes Shimano TLD-25s and Penn 50tw reels for trolling and bottom fishing as well as lunch and refreshments. You can get the same great service with Cowboy Sport fishing Charters.

For a bird’s-eye view of the jungle, adventurous spirits can enjoy the Costa Rican wilderness along one of the longest canopy tours in the world that boasts a total length of 6400 meters. Miss Sky Canopy Tour is located in a 2500-acre forest reserve and includes 12 runs, stopovers at waterfall and river pools and a sky-high experience not to be forgotten.

Relaxing is one of the most precious activities Nosara offers. Awake with the sun around 5 a.m. for walks on the beach, or enjoy a morning swim in one of our many rental properties’ Infinity pools. Read a book while swinging on a hammock amidst the jungle breeze, butterflies and howler monkeys. Exercise later at a Judo, boxing and other martial arts classes at the Enchanted Forest or take in a yoga class on the beach.

The possibilities for getting away from it all are endless.
