Driving to Nosara from San Jose

Nosara is located on the Pacific Coast of the Nicoya Peninsula, in the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica.

Driving from San Jose to Nosara, you will take the main Interamerican Highway (Carretera Interamericana) north out of San Jose (past the large international Juan Santamaria airport). This highway travels north and west toward Guanacaste Province.

*** While in San Jose, be sure to have a couple hundred dollars changed into colones for "road-trip" money. It's easier for gas stations, sodas and restaurant purchases. Once you get to Nosara (or other tourist and beach areas) dollars are generally accepted.

You'll follow the Inter-American Highway for several hours as it rises out of the Central Valley and winds through the mountains... Eventually the highway will flatten out and straighten into a more northerly course. Driving directions.

Follow this flat stretch of highway for a couple of hours. Shortly after you notice highway signs for Puntarenas, look for the signs pointing to the "Puente de Amistad" (the new bridge over the Tempisque River). This will be a left turn, but the signs are on the right side out on the main Inter-American Highway.

After you cross the new bridge you will be on the Nicoya Peninsula! Keep driving along the paved highway to the City of Nicoya (large town). When you are almost to Nicoya, you will come to an intersection with a 4-way red flashing light - there will be signs indicating a left turn into the town of Nicoya.

Drive straight through Nicoya on the "main road"... No turns. Drive slowly, as there are a lot of pedestrians in this bustling town. You will eventually exit town on the other side. Continue driving southward on the paved road approximately 30km. There will be some twists and turns, but just stay on the main paved highway.

Eventually you will see a large Gas Station on your left. There is also a hardware store and little "soda" cafe for snacks and drinks. Stop here and get gas... it's the last chance on your way to Nosara!

Right after you leave the gas station, the concrete highway makes a sharp curve to the left. At the apex of that curve, you will notice a small dirt road turning off to the right, downhill. That is the road to Nosara.

This dirt road is about 25KM, but takes over 1 1/2 hours to drive.... There are more turns and twists, but stay on the "main" road. There are also occasional signs that tell you how many kilometers you still have to go.... You will pass through many small towns and villages. At the T-intersection in the small village of Barco Quebrada, turn right (there should be signs pointing to Nosara, and the main road should be wider and appear more travelled). Driving directions to Nosara.

The people along the way are very friendly, so if you aren't positive that you are still on the main road, just stop and ask someone "Donde es Nosara". Most people will at least be able to point in the right direction. When you get to the beaches of Nosara, it will be very obvious that you have found it... There are signs, surf shops, restaurants, hotels...

Keep driving past the Playa Guiones area, following the signs leading to Playa Pelada, then look for signs to Hotel Villa Las Tecas. (We are across the street from Hotel Rancho Suisso.) If you pass the new gas station, you've missed the turn and gone too far...

NOTE: The actual town of Nosara is a few more kilometers further inland from the Beaches of Nosara... If you continue on through some twists and turns about another 5 km, you will come to Nosara Centro, the business district, where you will find grocery stores, medical care, city services and shopping.

Allow about 6 hours for your drive from Juan Santamaria airport in San Jose to Nosara, Costa Rica.

Driving to Nosara from Liberia Airport

Nosara is located on the Pacific Coast of the Nicoya Peninsula, in the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica.

Driving from the Liberia Airport (Daniel Oduber) to Nosara: Once you get out of the airport, take a right. Follow this road about 50 kilometers to get to the town of Nicoya. Take a right at the Nicoya intersection going through the town.

Drive straight through the town of Nicoya on the "main road", no turns. Drive slowly, as there are a lot of pedestrians in this bustling town. You will eventually exit town on the other side. Continue driving southward on pavement approximately 30km, through some twists and turns. Be sure to stay on the main, paved highway.

Eventually you will see a large Gas Station on your left. There is also a hardware store and little "soda" cafe for snacks and drinks. Stop here and get gas - it's your last chance on the way to Nosara.
