Gateway – but not gatekeeper – to the Nicoya Peninsula (one of the world’s only five Blue Zones), Nosara promises a new pace, a great vibe, and an altogether different way of life. For those who truly get it, Nosara is that oft-sought but rarely found blend of raw nature and refined living: dirt roads that welcome high-end real estate; bilingual private education where phys. ed. can mean surfing; and high-powered remote workers who start their days with ocean-view yoga.
Occupying an oceanfront that sweeps from Playa Ostional and Playa Nosara to Playa Pelada and Playa Guiones, Nosara still retains its charm of yesteryear. While much of the area’s beaches are protected within Ostional Wildlife Refuge, the region’s breezy hillsides (and a few, rare oceanfront properties) are now home to a growing selection of homes and villas, some contained within luxury gated communities, including Acquarello Nosara, Kalyok Villas, Nanku Eco-Village, Selvamar, Become Nosara, Las Delicias, and El Molino.
Prices start around $100,000 for building lots and homesites; $300,000 for single-family homes and villas; and $550,000 for luxury at luxury gated communities. Luxury properties start at around $850,000.
