This a special, secluded spot, far from the developed tourist areas. The calming, fung shui style buildings and surrounding rainforest gardens are punctuated by a luxurious infinity swimming pool and upper yoga studio with unbelievable views. Screened in showers make your morning shower a commune with the rainforest. The white sand beaches of Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada are a short 20-30 min drive. Lots of cute little shops, restaurants and yoga studios in Nosara itself--and friendly locals. The hosts Karen and Greg gave us a lot of good ideas for activities and great restaurants--we loved Experiece Nosara Adventures. I broke my camera while there and Karen and Greg even loaned me theirs for the remainder of the trip. Oh, and I haven't

you while your in the pool. And we were charmed by the families of howler monkey that make their home in the trees around
AHKI. I only wish that there had been more yoga classes available. Very reasonable for what you get!
