Things to do (optional)

Nosara Gardens surf program

Here at The Gardens, they've got you covered. They offer a highly-rated surf program for beginners and advanced alike, with their instructors teaching people how to surf for over a decade. Nosara Gardens also, of course, has board storage and surfboard rental (both high-performance shortboards and longboards) on-site so if you don't want to bring your log with you, no worries.

Nosara Gardens' guide to surfing Playa Guiones

George, the owner here at The Gardens, and a keen surfer himself describes Playa Guiones as a break of many moods. It's one of the most consistent waves on the planet, removing that fear you might not get surf on your vacation and you don't need a wetsuit. It is a classic beach break with exceptional sandbars and known perhaps best for its positive friendly vibe in the water. No localism here.

At high tide, Playa Guiones is definitely a softer wave lending perfectly to beginners or longboards looking to perfect their noseriding. Although on larger swells, high tide also brings some nice rippable walls. Low tide Guiones is different and while still appropriate for beginners (it really is a very beginner friendly wave), it offers more power and punches for a short boarder. One hour after low tide is when George recommends to surf.

Not only that but you'll find a lot more to keep you occupied out here. Turtles occasionally bobbing their heads in the lineup, schools of fish, pelicans, and usually a beautiful blue ocean, you can often see right to the bottom of. Of course, there are numerous other spots in the area too just a short drive away and staying at The Gardens, they'll be happy to give you the inside scoop.
