This review is long past due. I traveled solo to Nosara in May 2013, and stayed 6 incredibly perfect nights at Villa Mango. I drove from San Jose to Nosara, which made feel like Indiana Jones - I've heard the roads have since been paved, so I'm glad to have experienced the adventure of it all! I used my car during my time there, but most places are accessible with a 15-30 minute walk via the beaches (walking back at night might be difficult though).
I stayed in the Tucan room and had a simply magical experience at Villa Mango. Agnes and Jo are sweet, generous, incredibly entertaining, and helpful with EVERYTHING. The breakfasts prepared by Yamileth were huge and delicious. Eggs and/or pancakes made to order (I'm still craving the chocolate and banana pancakes), fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, fresh juice, breads and jams, and splendid COSTA RICAN COFFEE. I'd eat breakfast and go do yoga and surf and not have to eat until dinner!
The weather was awesome. May is kind of the shoulder season, but it means less people and better prices most places. It was hot and sunny during the days and there were some great afternoon and evening thunderstorms with huge, but short-lived downpours. The rain was just enough to cool things off, but not ruin any adventures.
I did yoga at Villa Mango a couple of times with Kelley and she's FABULOUS! It was amazing to have small/private instruction on the deck where the monkeys come to watch (they must like the music). Unequaled experience anywhere.
I can't say enough about how perfect and comfortable my stay at Villa Mango was. I will go back as soon as I can, and consider Agnes, Jo, and Kelley forever friends.
