About Nosara


Great restaurants are plentiful in Nosara... many within walking distance of Campo Alegre.

Marlin Bill's offers fresh, well-prepared and beautifully presented American fare with nightly specials. Situated atop a hill this open air establishment is a great place to meet local residents and travelers alike - or choose a quiet table and enjoy the great view! Marlin Bill's is open for lunch and dinner every night except Sunday.

Rosie's is located next to Marlin Bill's and is charming little cafe run by...who else?..but Rosie. Rosie serves up typical and delicious Tico fare. Breakfast and lunch is served Monday through Friday.

Other restaurants within walking distance include; Casa Tucan, Cafe de Paris, Giardino Tropical, Guilded Iguana, La Luna and Olgas. If you have wheels there are more great restaurants including La Dolce Vida, Rancho Tico and La Garta Lodge.

Don't hesitate to ask Linda to recommend another choice spot for dinner. There are several. If you are in the mood for music, you'll find it at Harbor Reef, Gilded Iguana and Casa Tucan. Typically each offers one night a week of entertainment. Please ask for details!

Super Markets and Mini-Super Markets

There is a super market nearby in the pueblo of Esperanza. As well as several mini-super markets within walking distance. In the nearby town of Nosara there are two more super markets. Any of these will provide the necessities. There are also supermarkets and an outdoor farmers market in the town of Nicoya, about 30 miles away.

Ocean Fishing

Interested in bill fish or tuna? No need to go far. There is great deep sea fishing out of nearby Garza Bay. We can help arrange half or full day trips. Or talk to Marlin Bill, he’s a great source!

Horse Back Riding

See the “Our Horses” page for information about leasing horses or stalls.  If you are interested in hourly riding tours we are happy to make arrangements for you with well cared for horses.

Ridley Turtles

A 25-minute drive to the north of Nosara is the town of Ostional. The beach at Ostional is the second largest nesting place in the world for olive ridley turtles. About 12 times a year you may see a "flotilla" of turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. The arribada or synchronized turtles mass nesting is an amazing thing to experience. There can be as many as 150,000 turtles who lay over 15 million eggs.


Playa Guiones is one of the premiere surfing beaches in Costa Rica. There is great surf in the entire area. Rent a surfboard, boogie board or snorkeling equipment from one of the local surf shops. Lots of places offer surf lessons. Ask for recommendations.
