Whether you want to walk on the beach, get on the surfboard or dance until sunrise, Nosara is definitely your travel destination. This amazing ecological community located in the Nicoya peninsula has much to offer for travelers across the world. I’m not the only one who says so: Nosara Costa Rica has been carefully selected for National Geographic’s list of Best Winter Trips of 2014 and it has also been ranked one of the 11 places to go in 2014 by CNN.
You don’t need to be an Eco-adventurer to understand why Nicoya is also considered one of the dream destinations for Eco-tourists. The place was blessed with extraordinary natural resources and population and government have been strongly committed to maintaining the beauty and integrity of the area. An evidence of this is the Blue Flag, a highly respected international Eco-label, which recognizes that Nicoya has reached international standards in overall quality. But that’s not all. Clear white sand and high quality waves also make the place a top surfing spot.
By the way, the combination of surf, sun and sand together with music led entertainment entrepreneurs set up Caricaco Music Festival 5 years ago. Caricaco is how snails are called by the local community and the serene life of the shellfish really reflects the spirit of the festival. The event attracts over a thousand visitors every year and plays an important role in strengthening the economy of the state. Enjoy a full day of live entertainment, a unique chance to dance barefoot on the sand, surrounded by a breathtaking view of the seaside and the finest music. Bands such as Cocofunka, La Canalla, Kurt Dyer and the singers Phillip Antman, Jen Stone and Hank the Pirate have already been part of the festival.
Where to stay:
L’acqua Viva Resort & Spa is located in Nosara, Nicoya, 100 meters south from the intersection to Playa Pelada. This place is part of a list of Luxury Hotels in Costa Rica. A total of 35 units among individual suites, master suites and other structures, seem to be floating on the extense surrounding water mirrors, ponds and pools.
