We just left nosara - we rented a vacation home that was broken into just before we arrived. We were told nothing can be left unattended on beach or it will be stolen . This is not the way I want to start my vacation. The roads are absolutely awful - dusty, bumpy and lots of rocks there are no paved roads . This place is only good to travel to if you are a surfer looking for waves, otherwise I would avoid area for vacation. If you do go there, I would stay at hotel or home with security system or guarded home.
