Playa Guiones

Playa Guiones is located just to the east of Nosara town and serves as the hotspot for surfers, yogis, and eco-warriors. The town is filled with organic produce markets, fine dining restaurants, luxury accommodations, and an ethnic mix of locals and ex-pats.

This golden white sand beach stretches for 6 km. A tropical paradise surrounded by swaying palms, lush vegetation, and tropical jungle, Guiones is considered a natural reserve. As a result, development is limited, keeping Playa Guiones pristine and undisturbed.

Geographically, the beach itself is located in a way such that it would catch any and all incoming swell activity from the Pacific Ocean. As a result, even when there’s little to no surf on any of the neighboring beaches Playa Guiones can still be offering up dreamy, long rides.

Despite such quality surf, Playa Guiones has managed to largely remain off the beaten track of many surfers, which means you can still pick and choose which waves you ride with limited crowds around. 

It's rightfully considered one of the most picturesque beaches along the Costa Rican coastline, but its real magic lies in its people, its culture, and its atmosphere, not to mention the fantastic surf!
