From the very first email Gale Ottley(owner ,operator of Lodge Vista Delmar)went above and beyond normal service to help us plan our trip,giving us the lowdown on Nosara and what to expect from money exchange to best surfing advice,drawing us maps to hidden trails to the beaches,ect.... he was helpful in finding us a budget hotel in SanJose for our layover and had suggestions for sightseeing there too.Gale arranged a deep sea fishing trip for us with Eduardo a expert local we caught a 110lb 9ft sailfish, catch and release ,and a 30lb Mahi Mahi which Gale offered to cook up for us on the patio,it was very special :) we met the nicest people on the breakfast patio from retired couples to young surfers from Brazil.
The wildlife there was prime you are perched up on a hilltop among the trees and the howler monkeys were less than 5 feet from our patios edge in a tree eating leaves.The Pizotes are darling and you will certainly see many of them very close up.Humming birds and Iguanas too!We rented a Car which is really a neccesary in Nosara .Gale told us the best low price place to get souveiners in Samara and was a wealth of knowledge on tides ect for surfing as he is an avid surfer.
Our room was lovely clean with beautiful light wood ceiling and doors,nice scenic patio too, very quiet location too.
There are some hotels closer to the beach but I did not see the monkeys,and pizotes down there if you want to spot local wildlife this is really the best in my opinion.
