Great surf beach!

Very consistent beginner to intermediate waves. Great for learning. Huge beach! Mostly a beach break. Can get a little busy during high tide if you're a beginner.

Had a great vacation with the family learning to surf, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, dinners on the beach... it is a beautiful place populated by friendly, lovely people.

I want to live there. It's paradise. The waves are perfect. Kids loved it. People are so nice. I really hope that Guiones stays the way it is forever. I don't think I could ask for more. Pura Vida

This beach was awesome and tranquil and so nice to relax at. There are locals in the area who sell food items during the entrance which is so nice to grab a drink or a snack. You can relax on the beach or head into the water.

Nosara Beach was so much fun!! We lounged on the beach a lot, but swam and body surfed in the wild waves even more! We're not surfers, but if you are, this is the place for you... Note that it's a protected beach so there's no cabanas, lounge chairs, etc. if you want an umbrella, cocktail or chair, be sure... More

This is one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. I would recommend Playa Pelada for swimming though.

We have traveled much of Costa Rica and this was one of the most friendly wave I've found. The beach was beautiful and it was slightly crowded at sunrise and sunset: I went out mid day a few times to escape and hardly anyone was in the water. I had an incredible time surfing and enjoying sunsets from playa Guiones... More

This beach is beautiful and ranks on top of the worlds best beaches. The beach is crowded at times but has amazing clean, soft sand bottom and perfect waves for surfers of all levels. The sunset is incredible everyday!
