The Harbor Reef Hotel is as close to the local Tico style hotel as can be. It is simple yet functional and comfortable. Being a mere 300 meters from the sands of Playa Guiones, you can hear the roar of the ocean. Facilities include refrigerator, air conditioning, coffee maker, daily maid service, cable TV, full restaurant / bar, swim up bar, and two pools.
At the Harmony Hotel, guests can enjoy the rare luxury of knowing that the beauty they see is rooted in ecologically sound practices. All 24 guest rooms are located on a path that meanders through a tropical garden overflowing with native vegetation and your ears will hear the sound of the waves. Harmony Hotel features a full-service spa and a wellness center directly on the property. Facilities include pool, juice bar, refrigerator, air conditioning, coffee maker, Wi-Fi access, daily maid service, and full restaurant / bar.
Opened in November 2015, this L.E.E.D. certified facility is home to Safari Surf School, offering expansive rooms, a beautiful pool, howler monkeys in the trees overhead and native floral surroundings. All 17 rooms, some of which can be combined to create 2, 3, and 4 bedroom suites look out onto the pool or out to the neighboring refuge. Just a short private path through the refuge brings you to the sand. Facilities include pool, air conditioning, ceiling fans, room safe, Wi-Fi access, full restaurant / bar, private beach, bath, laundry services, and clubhouse.
Safari Surf School's group lessons have a maximum of 3 people per instructor, making sure that you are training with other surfers on the same level with personal instruction. You will have 12 surfing lessons which will be 2 group lessons daily for 6 days in the morning and in the afternoon with all equipment provided. Safari Surf School has top-notch surfing gear and a huge selection of boards for any surfing level built by top brands like Firewire, Walden, and McTavish. The program also includes video review. There’s no better way to progress at surfing than to watch yourself surf to see the good and the not so good.
Furthermore, your package already comes with 2 activities of your choice. You can choose daily yoga, massage, zip lining tour, horseback tour, kayaking tour, stand-up paddleboarding tour, waterfall hiking (seasonal), or snorkeling tour. Of course, you can always add on additional activities to your vacation package, either prior to arrival or on site (at an additional cost).
Safari Surf School's location in Nosara is an extremely special place as it blends the cool vibe of a sleepy surf town with the wellness and focus of a world class yoga destination. It’s a pretty amazing synergy of people in and out of the water.
Playa Guiones is nestled in the quiet quaint town of Nosara in the Guanacaste Province on the Pacific side of the country of Costa Rica. In Nosara, you won’t be trampled by hordes of tourists, unlike the crowded beaches of places like Tamarindo, Jaco, or Dominical. There are no street lights or paved roads and Nosara still has monkeys cruising in the trees but there are just the right number of amenities in town to ensure that you have a relaxing vacation. It’s a surfer’s paradise.
You will have good morning pre-surf snack (coffee, fruits, and banana bread), daily breakfast with full menu access (including fresh juice, water, tea, and coffee), nightly dinners with full menu access (except on Sundays), and your choice of 1 glass wine or 2 beers with dinner.
Please book your flight to arrive at Juan Santamaría International Airport (SJO) or Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport (LIR). Transfer from and to the airports is included. Safari Surf School will pick you up from the airport.
The transfers will be via private shuttle taxi van.
