Nosara Retreat is nestled in the pristine pacific coast of Costa Rica on two acres of tropical gardens and jungle. Created in harmony with nature, we are here to provide you with an ideal setting for relaxation, rejuvenation, personal rediscovery and fun.
A five-minute walk brings you to the secluded Pelada Beach with fine white sand. The ocean is the centerpiece of life here. You can walk for miles along the quiet, unspoiled beaches of Nosara observing magical rock formations, breaking waves, and gentle tide pools.
We provide affordable earth friendly living with personalized service. Activities we offer include: turtle nesting, surfing and horseback riding, water sports, hiking trails, walk through the biological preserve, and zip line tour.
Our on-site jungle trail through the green zone to the beach allows you to explore the unspoiled wildness of this vibrant natural habitat.
Nosara Retreat is an ideal spot from which to explore Nosara’s laid-back charm, fine restaurants, shops and assortment of Yoga and wellness options. Or you may want to just relax in a hammock, watch the howler monkeys and listen to the ocean.
This peaceful setting is ideal for unwinding. Enjoy rural Costa Rica, “pura vida,” (pure life)
From Dec 18, 2015 - Jan 04, 2016 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
Our stay at Nosara Retreat was the perfect place for us to get acclimated to Nosara and Costa Rica for the next two months to come. Deborah, Ashley, Gloria and Carlos were amazing and a pleasure to be around. I will never forget the phenomenal breakfasts that the Retreat offers: toast, a whole plate of fruit, smoothie and coffee. I cannot sing enough praises for the hospitality of this place.
Although Playa Pelada is a bit far from Guiones (where a lot of the action is), both my partner and I enjoyed the daily 8k walk from and back to the Retreat.
The room itself makes us feel as if we're in literally in the middle of the jungle, especially when the howler monkeys' calls become our daily alarm calls and when leaving your food out for anything more than 2mins means sharing your meal with the jungle critters.
We have enjoyed our stay so much and I honestly can't recommend it more. Seems like a great place for locals for a weekend yoga getaway, and most definitely for first-timers to get acquainted.
Thank you for an awesome time, and I am definitely coming back to see you guys before I leave!
We truly had the Costa Rican experience at nosara retreat!
Check-in was easy and smoothe, Ashley was very sweet and gave us excellent restaurant recommendations.
Our room was simple and fit our needs. We definitely had to remind ourselves that we were in nature because of the bugs outside. However, the plus side was that we saw monkeys everyday from our outdoor kitchen. The retreats grounds are very well kept and feel like you're in the jungle. It's also a short 3 minute walk to a beautiful beach. Overall I would recommend this place if you're looking for something simple and low maintenance. Plus, pack bug spray.
Very welcoming place, bright, cherry wonderful breakfast and has so much more than what is in the description! They do yoga (all sorts every morning at 8:30am, do music circles, temezcal, and more)!
It was a short walk to the beach and let me tell you it was stunningly romantic and renewing... Whole place is magical.
Only thing is when we were there it was dry season, so be prepared for water to be shut off 8 hours a day. It was a wonderful experience that made me much more aware of the water situation in the world and it's amazing how we overuse everything in the states.
There was an outdoor kitchen that was loaded with everything we could ask for and every morning the chef Jr. makes a to do for tropical breakfast! Being someone who has celiac disease and multiple food allergies he was VERY accommodating and sweet, I didn't expect that. True hospitality!
Would come here again in a jiffy!
Thank you for such a warm review Jaquy. We loved having you and Josh here with us. You were both a joy to have and we would love to have you back anytime at all. Look forward to an email from Deborah! (Junnior says hello!!) Hope you are feeling better by now. I believe you left your cold here with me though! LOL
Oh I just loved my stay at Nosara Retreat! My room was just as beautiful, sweet and clean as the photo and description described.
Deborah, Ashley and the staff were wonderful, attentive, helpful and helped with my travel arrangements when I had questions.
I loved my stay so much that I extended it 4 days because I didnt' want to leave! Walking the beach each day and enjoying the ocean and waves were a daily pleasure I looked forward to each morning.
Nosara Retreat is in a peaceful, quiet, lush jungle area and a nice 2+ mile beach walk takes you to Guiernnes where there's more restaurants, shops and activity.
I loved having the outdoor kitchen to prepare my meals, write in my journal and eat outside. The open air and rustic stay were just what I was looking for. Navigating the walk to finding produce and other food became part of the charm I loved about being there. Its good to know that without a vehicle you will be walking a couple of miles to the market/bodega.
The staff can also arrange rides for you, which they did for me to get to the retreat from where my shuttle dropped me off.
I very much look forward to returning and bringing my clients there for a retreat. I plan on staying for a long stay next Winter. Until then I'll be dreaming of the simple meals, journal writing and wonderful people I met there.
It was lovely having you here with us! Look forward to the possibility of you visiting again and bringing a food retreat. I am moved by your appreciation of the simple pleasures of being here, walking the beach, buying healthy foods and preparing a simple meal, writing in your journal. This is what we are about! meanwhile, be well!
Absolutely loved it! The girls working there were super nice and helpful. Playa Pelada was gorgeous. The whole atmosphere was made for relaxation. It was the exact type of vacation I was looking for. Absolutely plan on staying again. Hopefully much sooner than later.
Séjour très agréable en pleine nature dans un environnement calme, tout près d'une plage belle à couper le souffle. Le logement est pratique et bien situé. Nous avons eu quelques petits problèmes de plomberie qui on vite été réglés.
I had an awesome time in Nosara! The Nosara retreat BnB was a quaint place set in the jungle with a 2 or 3 minute walk to the beach. Deborah and Theresa were really great. They were very flexible with breakfast times, helpful in getting me acquainted with the area, suggested which restaurants were the best and even arranged some fun activities for me while I was there. I can honestly say that the time I spent at Nosara retreat was amazing. I was in Costa Rica for 2 weeks and had the pleasure of staying in Nosara for 4 nights. If I had it to do over again I'd have spent the whole two weeks in Nosara.

About the Host, Deborah
I came to Costa Rica in 1989 and fell in love with Playa Pelada, the people and the country. The houses we had built over the years served as a retreat for my extended family. For years, we all came together during the Christmas holidays. Inspired by the vibrant tropical colors and beauty of people and local scenes, I painted pictures for each room. In 1994 I started a B&B on the property and a year later, moved here permanently. My dream for many years was to have a healing center. Recently we began hosting retreats. It is my joy to share this healing paradise with you.
