How to move around in Nosara
The first thing you notice when you arrive at Nosara is that everything is spread out and surrounded by jungle. For this reason, people usually prefer to have their own transportation.
The roads are very rough and during the dry season they get dusty so a SUV is ideal, but many people prefer to ride a motorcycle, an ATV or a golf cart. There’s plenty of places where you can get a rental car, ATV or golf cart, specially in Guiones Downtown and North Guiones.
If you’re staying in Playa Guiones, and plan to be close to the center of the town, you can also rent a bike to move around. There’s also the option to call a tuk tuk, small cars used as taxis, which is a fun and unique way to travel. Check our listing of tuk tuks in Nosara .
