Here in Nosara, we have a secret. It’s a secret that tries to escape almost daily, but one we keep relatively close. It’s a secret that draws thousands of expats to this tucked away town, two and a half hours from the nearest international airport. It’s a secret that makes some people call Nosara the crown jewel of Costa Rica. And it’s a secret that infuses every moment you’re herewith pure bliss.

This secret, however, is not just one thing. In fact, you can’t quite put your finger on it, and you certainly can’t put it into words. Many locals here simply call it “Nosara Life”. Some people describe Nosara Life as the feeling you get when you walk your kids to school as a troop of monkeys swings high above you from the treetops. Others say it’s the rush you get as you hop on an ATV, driving away from your oasis home in the jungle, to meet friends for yoga or a cocktail. And still others believe it’s the wave of awe that washes over you when you’re on an untouched Costa Rican beach, with the jungle behind you and the ocean outstretched in front, and you think, “I can’t believe this is my life.” The Nosara way is a balance of life that most people never know they needed until the first time they arrived in Nosara.

In the 1960s, a United States businessman came to Nosara and fell in love. So in love, that he purchased nearly all the land in the town. He created a master plan and imagined a beach-community filled with golf courses. Fortunately, his plan never came to pass. He ran out of funding and the jungle reigned supreme. Ever since Nosara has slowly developed into the thehidden gem it is today.

Nosara is, by all accounts, a paradise. It’s a place with world famous surf beaches and world-class wellness retreats. A place that feels like home from the moment you arrive. And not just because of the setting, but also because of who lives here. Nosara attracts a certain type of individual. The people who come here want life to slow down, but they don’t want to stop living.

They keep active with yoga, or surfing, or treks through the jungle. Their children get a top-tier education at the town’s private schools. They live a relaxed life amongst nature while meeting fascinating people who become collaborators, business partners, and friends. Nosara is filled with entrepreneurs, corporate execs, and recent retirees who want a different kind of life. They’re the type of people who want to take an ATV to get to the beach each morning, because, well, who doesn’t?

The only way to truly experience Nosara is to visit and become part of the community. For the past decade, The Nosara Real Estate Agency has been building relationships and helping people turn the Nosara paradise into their personal own paradise. Let us do the same for you.
