Nosara, Costa Rica

Pack your bags! We're headed to...

Tucked away in a lush nature preserve with only a sendero (/sen’dero/: spanish translation, a short path or trail) between you and the breaking waves, Sendero hotel immerses you in the sounds and sights of the animals and birds and the abundance of jungle plants and trees, while still being in the heart of Nosara.
