Thank you for your very kind and thorough review. It sounds like your time was well spent and you were able to fully explore the area (great recommendations for area dining and activities!) How fun that you all learned how to surf together. What great memories!! The Safari Surf instructors are the best - so patient and kind! We hope you will come back soon to hone your skills. We will all be ready for you again, and will be pleased to arrange additional excursions. We'll pass on your compliments to the fantastic women at El Manglar. They are so good at making our guests special with their magic in the kitchen. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your family vacation with us and look forward to your return! Pura Vida!

Hello, you will be able to attend yoga at Olas Verdes or any of the nearby yoga studios. The best ones are at walking distance from the hotel (or using our complimentary bicycles). The closest is Nosara Yoga Institute. We look forward for your visit!

We are happy about your plans to visit Nosara in Costa Rica. These are the tropics and there is a large variety of insects that enrich our forests. We do not have a mosquito problem, but there are mosquitoes here, which means there's always a chance you could get bitten. JessicaSummer (review below) suggestion to wear long pants and long sleeved shirts (light in fabric) is a very good one. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your interest in Olas Verdes! Both the town and our hotel are very safe for you and your nine year old. We have a restaurant and surf school (excellent for all levels) on site. We offer use of bicycles for cruising around town, as well as help to coordinate area excursions (zip-lining, horseback riding, yoga...)

"I couldn't tell a big difference in rooms, but you might ask for one away from the restaurant and the monkeys (!)"
"Choose one further from the restaurant if you like to sleep late. People get up early to surf so you can hear people chatting."
"Any room you get will be fantastic"
"Rooms on the bottom are dark"
