Unlike most coastal tourist towns, Nosara lacks nearly any development directly on the beach as much of it consists of the Ostional Wildlife Refuge, which is necessary due to the presence of breeding Olive Ridley and Leatherback sea turtle populations. Literally, hundreds of thousands of sea turtles flock here annually to lay their eggs.
In addition to the sea turtles, Costa Rica boasts many national parks and protected areas that are home to more than a half million wildlife species that draw its own form of tourism, with people eager to view the flora and fauna that abounds here. In fact, Costa Rica’s national parks and protected areas cover nearly a quarter (23.4%) of the country’s land area — the largest in the world as a percentage of the country’s territory. It also represents 5% of the world’s biodiversity, which is astounding for a country of its size and explains why tourists flock here for that reason alone.
Nosara is home to some of the nicest yoga destinations on earth.
The primary yoga facility is Bohdi Tree, which is world-renowned.
Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort is the perfect place to relax and experience tranquility by attending or hosting your own yoga retreat.
For years, watersport enthusiasts have flocked to the Guanacaste region – specifically Playa Guiones on the Nicoya Peninsula – for what is considered to be some of the best surfing conditions in the world.
