Whether you’re here for a retreat, vacation or indefinitely, the surf culture here is on point. The waves, as deemed by The Endless Summer (a famous surf movie), are some of the best in the world. The inside beach-break section is perfect for beginners and when swell arrives, the waves are as good as any beach-break in the world. The laid-back surfing lifestyle is expressed by locals and traveling surfers passing through. Whether you’re on the beach learning to surf for the first time, or an experienced surfer seeking out a different wave, everyone always leaves the beach with a smile on their face. The meaning of pura vida, a Costa Rican expression, which is used on a daily basis multiple times, means ‘pure life’. When describing Nosara it couldn’t be described any better.
