Women’s Surf Adventures is nestled in the quiet, quaint town of Nosara in the Guanacaste Province on the Pacific side of the country of Costa Rica. Unlike the crowded beaches of places like Tamarindo, Jaco, or Dominical in Nosara you won’t be trampled by hoards of tourists. There are approximately 500 Ticos and around 200 emigrants from America and Europe living in the vicinity. You are truly in the jungle, and you’ll realize it when you awaken in the morning to the Howler monkeys stretching their vocal chords in the distance.
The allure of Nosara is that our beach (Playa Guiones) and the outer lining area is a wild life refuge protected from development of any kind. Nosara is truly “where the jungle meets the beach”! Nosara is also home to a very large yoga community including The Nosara Yoga Institute and Omega Yoga. If yoga and surfing are your thing there is no better place to visit.
Safari Surf School is approximately 30 miles off the main paved road. That helps keep traffic down while enjoying all the necessary amenities. Telephones, internet, DirecTV, hot water and electricity are the norm. There’s a doctor in town as well as a large hospital in Nicoya, just 60 minutes away. What makes Safari Surf School’s location so special? You are close to multiple waterfalls that can be hiked to and Ostional, the Sea Turtles nesting sanctuary.
Here in Nosara, everything slows down so you can unwind, relax and enjoy the lifestyle while you learn to surf. There is cultural diversity here and likewise, an abundance of ethnically influenced eateries: French, German, Italian and American to balance the local fare. The peaceful serenity of Safari Surf School’s beach is approximately four miles long and excellent for a great a.m. jog, shell-hunting, football, soccer, Frisbee, or just a long relaxing walk to take in the jungle scenery.
