Ah... it brings a smile to my face while writing this review...
Having been to Costa Rica annually for the past 7 years, up and down the pacific coast in search of surf, culture and food, we finally stumbled across the Costa Rica that people dream about.
This experience is brought to you none other than the man, Darin.
Nosara is a beautiful protected area where the Ticos and Ex-Pat's live together in harmony. Being in such a remote area you'd expect the time to pass reading books and walking trails, but this area has so much to do we didnt scratch the surface for the week we were there. Get ready for some fun, and tell Darin your looking to do weird outlandish trips, he'll take you for some crazy experiences.
Must do activities:
Surfing is great at Guiones, good beach break wave that doesnt look like much from the beach but offers fun connecting sections that will feed your appetite. Playa Ostinal is where the large surf comes in and if you get it right, a memorable surf session is in store for yourself and the 2-3 other people out that day.
Kayak - Great trip through the mangroves on to a deserted beach with no footprints for miles.
ZipLining - Great experience, very safe and goofy guides.
Witch Doctor - Youll have to experience it to explain it.
Yoga - World Class
Breath Work - If Ashely is around, TRY THIS. Unbelievable experience.
Chica and Rubby - The dogs at the CRYS, go for a hike and bring them along. Excellent tour guides.
Live Music - Great music scene, any chance to catch a show in town hop on it.
Beautiful beaches - Darin knows the best spots, youll have the beach to yourself.
The Chef - Amazing local cuisine, even made us sushi!
Overall, we came here for a unique honeymoon experience. We left with a second home to return to year after year.
Thanks CRYS, you guys rock. Cant wait to watch the community being created!
