Your Costa Rican dream vacation is our everyday.
Set back from the coastline by a jungle forever preserved, Olas Verdes is a small Costa Rican boutique hotel that provides immediate access to the serenity you crave. Pour your coffee and head down our private trail to Playa Guiones to catch a sunrise surf session for a different kind of pick-me-up. As you strengthen your practice on our private yoga deck, clear your mind while taking in the tranquil soundtrack of the canopy. Rehydrate with a fruit smoothie picked from our orchard and prepared poolside at the locally-owned restaurant and bar, El Manglar. After a family siesta in your casita, grab the kids and play in our beach-style saltwater pool. Finish the day by heading down to the beach to watch the sunset—don’t forget the camera!
Adventure is an extension of the pura vida spirit.
Get ready to experience what spurred your wanderlust in the first place and let Olas Verdes be your hub for exploration. Not sure where to start? Our staff takes the stress out of creating your itinerary with a one-stop-shop for making reservations just steps from your room. Nosara features a range of activities to suit anyone’s idea of pura vida:
- Horseback Riding
- Surf School

- World Class Waves
- SUP Tours
Nosara is not just a destination—it’s a mindset.
This once clear-cut farming region has been fully restored to its original state with forest lands along the coastline and surrounding mountains. Starting in the 1970’s, conservative tourism growth created the demand for reforestation and conservation initiatives driven by locals, expats, and Costa Rica’s environmental agency, MINAE. As a result, Nosara’s community banded together to form the Nosara Civic Association and took a stand to make sure the area would not be spoiled by unsustainable tourism growth like other areas of Costa Rica.
Unpaved roads still bring you back in time to simple coastal living. The serene beach town is a world class surfing destination with Playa Guiones featuring 4 miles of beach break that catches any swell direction year-round. A flourishing wellness community of local artists, organic farmers, and a wide array of renowned yoga studios call Nosara home. Combine all this with an abundance of adventure tourism and ecotourism activities and the rest is clear—Nosara begs you to get back to nature.
Craving comida? Sample a diverse range of cuisine from fresh seafood to creative vegetarian plates, family style BBQ’s, or even Costa Rican craft beer, spirits, and wine from any of the many restaurants in town. If you don’t feel like venturing far from your room, Olas Verdes’ organic farm-to-table restaurant, El Manglar, can serve your favorite Tico dish with herbs and vegetables picked from our garden just a tomatoe’s throw away.
