When you visit Selina Nosara, it is more than a hotel room and a vacation filled with sun, surf and sand. It is a lifestyle retreat in an area known for its Zen culture and pristine beaches. Designed to be a place to connect with others, the resort not only has beautifully appointed accommodations, but it also offers co-working and community space. Selina attracts visitors who wish to help mind, body and spirit thrive in harmony.

Nosara is located on the Nicoya Penninsula in the Guanacaste Province. Historically, the area hasn’t attracted the volume of tourists experienced by other areas. However, it is becoming a popular destination for families and individuals looking for a healthier lifestyle and the chance to interact with nature in a profound way while on vacation. Its stark coastal landscape and unique ecosystem is home to a range of animal species, from giant anteaters and margays to white-faced monkeys.

Local laws ban construction within 550 of the shore, keeping beaches undeveloped and pristine. One of the oldest expat locations in Costa Rica, National Geographic has ranked this tropical paradise among the top 20 surf cities in the world and is among the top ten beaches in Central America.

Take a break from the world and enjoy sessions on the yoga deck, walks on the beach or experience the thrill of doing nothing more than floating in the pool. When you are ready for action, take part some of the numerous workshops and activities on-site, or explore the area.

Nosara is part of Selina’s hospitality network and offers accommodations to fit the needs of virtually every traveler. Accessible only by 4x4, its location in the heart of downtown Playa Guiones, it provides the perfect balance between exploration and relaxation.

Getting here is as easy and flexible as your stay. If you are coming from another Selina, you can book a Selina shuttle or take a local flight. The Route 160 bus stops at the Nosara Downtown terminal, and the Nosara Beach Airport is the closest flight destination. Take a taxi to the resort. It is approximately a 15-minute ride from either location.
