Why Live in Nosara?

From August to December, many careful witnesses gather at dawn to be guided by professionals to Ostional Beach to witness the miracle of birth. Hundreds of turtle eggs hatch in front of their eyes, and the sunrise aids the tiny newborns towards the ocean. There are few words to describe this phenomenon, but if you happen to go to Nosara, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy it.
