I traveled to Costa Rica for the first time, with my daughter, and stayed here based on a recommendation from a pilot who stayed here a few years ago. We arrived via Nature Air at Nosara and taxi referred by Andrea, we stayed for four days in May of 2014. It was wonderful. We stayed in the 'budget' room which was basic but very satisfactory. The breakfast was wonderful, and the cook was very helpful with smoothies and omletes. Lunch and dinner was also very good. The nearby beach was amazing. I found out the day before we left that Interbus did not make a stop this far out of Samara, and Andrea expertly handled a cab to town and clarified with Interbus our new pickup location, or we would have been stranded. However, I could not think of a better place in the world to be stranded. Though the place is remote and birds and monkeys woke us up in the morning, this contributes to its attractiveness. I didn't ask, but the sign said bicycles, and next time, I will borrow a bicycle from Andrea to see the sights.
