Yaxa Nosara is situated in a region that offers a number of amazing beaches. Playa Guiones is stunning and great for running, relaxing, watching the sunset and of course surfing. You will see that everyone assembles on Playa Guiones for sunset to enjoy the amazing sights. To the north is Playa Pelada and Playa Ostional, and to the south is Playa Garza.
Playa Pelada is a protected area due to its impressive coral reef and offers magnificent fine sand and a wonderful natural environment. This beach has a relaxing atmosphere where tourists take baths in its ponds of crystal-clear waters, dive or just swim in the safe and calm waters.
The beaches of Playa Ostional are an ecologic model since they are marine turtles’ chosen setting for their nesting and the National Wildlife Refuge at Ostional is one of Guanacaste’s most impressive and beautiful landscapes due to the wild and thick vegetation that surrounds it.
Playa Garza offers a very quiet and secluded setting in addition to some quality surfing for swell coming in from the south.
