Sendero is Costa Rica’S New Surf School Destination

It is no secret that Costa Rica holds some of the most world-renown surfing spots on the planet. One of the prime locations can be found in the Nosara district of the Nicoya canton, in the Guanacaste province.  The area has just opened a beachfront hotel, Sendero that specializes in surfing lessons.

Built as a sustainable, boutique property that blends traditional Costa Rican architecture with modern design, Sendero is aiming to create a haven for travelers looking to find the meaning of Pura Vida – the local saying for enjoying a simple, pure life to the fullest. 

With less than 5,000 inhabitants, Nosara is also known as a fishing and agricultural area. Despite being one of with the oldest expatriate communities in Costa Rica, the town has a village feel and the beachfront is underdeveloped.

This is one of the characteristics that sets Sendero apart from anything else in the country. Nosara is bustling with electric energy and balanced by a tranquil ambiance. The town has perfected the art of valuing time and the property offers guests the perfect path to learn and adopt that lifestyle. 

Unique to the area, the hotel is located in the jungle near five miles of undeveloped beaches and is perfectly positioned for guests to enjoy Nosara’s unique characteristics like the local culture and emphasis on wellness. 

Sendero was built with sustainability top of mind and nurtures guests’ spirits through wellness, art, relaxation, and adventure. Set between the jungle and lush coast, visitors can immerse themselves in everything the property has to offer.
