Costa Rican Hideaway: Nosara

If you'd like to know more about Nosara, the popular surfing town on Costa Rica's Pacific Coast, here's a link to a great article by the New York Times, entitled: A BuzzFeed Founder's Costa Rican Hideaway.

Here are our favorite take-aways from this informative journalism piece:

"No new development is allowed in beachside conservation areas within about 200 yards of the ocean. There are no high-rise buildings, no fast-food restaurants, very few beach bars — there are not even chaise longues on the beach. It is, in effect, the anti-resort resort."

"Reaching Nosara remains a bit of a chore — it requires a bumpy two-hour trip across mostly dirt roads from the closest major airport, in Liberia. And do not rely on Google Maps — it will tell you to take a hazardous mountain-pass road. But in a way, that is just how everyone wants it to stay. Make it any easier, and Nosara, as it is today, will disappear."
