Have you ever dreamed of living on the beach? In a beautiful community where it’s hot almost all year round? Well, you can get a taste of that life by visiting Nosara, Costa Rica. Nosara is a relatively small town with a population of just over 5,000 people and has a significant number of expats living here. With the amazing beaches and gorgeous weather, it’s not hard to see why. Although the area is largely rural and has some unpaved roads, Nosara has one of the oldest expat communities in the country as well as a large fishing and agricultural economy. Unlike a lot of tourist towns, Nosara lacks a lot of development on its beaches because much of it is a wildlife refuge. There’s also a huge surfing community here with some of the best surfing anywhere in the world, so don’t forget to pack your board! For those looking for something more relaxing, there is also a world-renowned yoga school located on Playa Guiones. So surf, suntan, and relax at Nosara Costa Rica.

The owner said he had “a pile of money he had no love for” and so, he built his dream house and it became this amazing property. The house is an airy, eco-friendly designed house with elements of the modern and the traditional Costa Rican tropical living standards. Located in the rainforest and only a six-minute drive to the beach, this property is truly something special as it was built with love and determination. The kitchen comes fully equipped, the queen size bed has organic sheets, and there is a private patio and outdoor shower. All of that just barely scratches the surface of what you’ll find here. The views from the terrace are stunning as you’ll have a 180-degree view of three beaches. Head to the pool to cool off in the hot afternoon and see the tropical animals from the lush gardens.
