This is a great spot for those traveling solo and want easy access to a surf beach! There's boards to borrow or rent, walking distance to great restaurants, or quick tuk-tuk ride to nearby areas. Clean & comfortable beds with AC! I'll be back!

The food is fresh and delicious. Open for lunch as well as dinner. Delicious fish tacos, sandwiches and full meals. Kept wanting to try a new dish, but always went back to the tacos - they are that good. Casual vibe, good drinks.

Wife and I had a very good lunch here, for not a lot of money. We stumbled into KayaSol because it's directly across from Burgers and Beers, which didn't have it's beef delivery yet.

Better prices than nearby Burgers & Beer or 10 Pies, slightly less cool atmosphere. Food was good enough, service what you expect in Nosara. Would return.

Our first day in town we were on a mission to find reliable internet to get some work done, but in a location where we could still enjoy being in Costa Rica. This place is it. The food is delicious (I got the chicken tacos), fully stocked bar (with smoothies), and an adorable pool for cooling off. The only downside...the... More

This restaurant has delicious food. It offers Costa Rican dishes along with American, which was pleasing for my kids. They even have a kids menu, the chicken fingers were their favourite. While they waited for their food they went for a quick dip in the pool which has cute water fall.

More than a little shack by the sand, KayaSol was a great recommendation from our friends who'd been to Nosara before. The seafood burrito was excellent, as was the fresh mahi mahi prepared on the grill. We'll certainly be back.
