Dave and his crew were fantastic in making our 2 week holiday in Nosara. We rented our boards from them, were given good local knowledge about practically everything and found it was our go-to spot for all things Nosara and area related. I learned more in 20 minutes from Dave about the "why's" of surfing, than I did with 2... More

This was one of my favorite places in Guiones...kind of strange I know, but it was just such a one stop shop. We rented umbrellas for the beach; $5 all day. Rented surfboards; $15 per day...pretty much the going rate in town. Booked a fishing trip, hired a tuk-tuk, bought gear, books, water...whatever you need. The best part was the... More

So many titles to choose from. When you arrive to the jungle some forget how difficult it is to get the comforts of city life. Frog Pad helps with that.Not only do they provide surf board rentals and snorkel gear, they have DVDs. Sometimes wifi does't work or is not available, so these "old fashion" little disc are awesome!!

Plenty of great movies to rent at the frog pad. Dave and his staff go out of their way to be accommodating and friendly. If there are adventures or tours you would like to set up the Frog Pad will make it happen.

The Frog Pad does many things; and conveniently, given it's location. Book your incredible massage with Juan Carlos Soldana (at Spacio), rent a Scrabble board, or some DVDs. You can also exchange books in the "library:. Don't have any to exchange? You can pay for a new book. Right across from the Gilded Iguana, in North Guiones. Helpful, friendly, ask... More
