We also always enjoy the great selection of used books. David & his staff really know the Nosara/Playa Guiones/Playa Pelada area, & are extremely gracious... More

Whatever you may need in Nosara, David and his wonderful staff at Frog Pad can rent it to you or help you find it. They coordinate all manner of transportation, tours, lodging logistics and maintain the best DVD and used book collection in Nosara. Be sure to stop in for a visit....a short 5 minute walk from the beach.
