Nosara Retreat was exactly what my friend and I were looking for in a Costa Rican vacation. We wanted to do a lot of yoga, be surrounded by nature in a peaceful environment, and close to the beach. Nosara Retreat is beautiful and well cared for. The staff are welcoming and very helpful. The description is accurate, but it is even more beautiful than the photos show. We had howler monkeys in the trees surrounding our room. Yoga is offered a few times a week in the lovely pavilion at Nosara Retreat and the instructors were great. It was also a really close drive to Nosara Yoga Institute and the Bodhi Tree Resort. Playa Pelada is a very short walk and is a beautiful and secluded beach. About a 10 minute walk down the beach there are two restaurants, Olga's and La Luna, that are great for watching sunset. Had the best meal of our entire stay at La Luna and they make great mojiotos. There is also a Mexican and a Italian restaurant in walking distance that are both good. It is a little further to Guiones where there are more restaurants and shops, easy by car but possible to walk along the beach. The roads getting in and out of Nosara are bit rough. We had rented a small car; it was slow going and the potholes were rough on it. I would highly recommend an SUV to make life easier. Would love to stay again!

Wonderful place! Great food and coffee and beach is a 10 min walk from hostel. Place is a little hard to find but if you ask someone they will guide you in the perfect direction! Would definitely come back :)

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!

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.

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.

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.
