I stayed in a bungalow near the pool and it was perfect for just me. I might look into bringing my two girls with me in the future as I think they'd like it too. The pool was nice to sit by in the afternoons and the beach was so close. The restaurant was good, as well. The staff were...

So while I didn't actually stay at KayaSol, as they were fully booked, the staff saved my trip to Costa Rica. I had a trip changing baggage delay upon arriving to Costa Rica. Even though I paid the surfboard surcharge, Avianca airlines did not send my surfboard bag with me. After a whole day waiting at the airport, I decided...

We just got back from our vacation and I'm longing to go back already! KayaSol Surf absolutely rocks. We stayed in a one bedroom cabin with a queen size bed and bunk beds. It really was all our family of four needed. Nosara is so incredible there's no desire to hang out inside, so we mainly used the cabin for...

Stayed there two nights on a recent trip to Nosara. Rooms were basic but nice enough, but you aren't paying for the room here. Nice pool, and rancho restaurant with a cool open air vibe, had live music there one night. A very short walk to Guones beach, and tons of great places within walking distance, including Burgers and Beers...

Amazing little spot. Monkeys and iguanas all over the place, truly an oasis in the middle of the jungle. If you've come here to surf, you're in the right place. Just a five minute walk and you're on one of the most consistent surfing beaches I've ever seen. The whitewater in perfect for beginners and out further are consistent larger...

This was our fifth stay at Kaya Sol totaling about 60 days over the past six years. The setting is beautiful, the accommodations are basic but attractive and brand new. Staff is very professional and very friendly. They are in a bit of a transition but the new cabinas work well and they were breaking ground on eight new ones...

This is an incredible place! Nosara is a very laid back location with premium beach and surf. Kaya Sol offers a private path to the north end of the beach (playa guiones). This makes for a very convenient access. Staff are friendly and the resturant is amazing. I Highly recommend Kaya Sol for your Nosara accomodation!

The restaurant was recommended to us by another tourist who's been coming to Nosara for 12 years so we stopped for lunch when passing it one day. The outdoor rancho style restaurant is large and comfy. Look at the awesome floor if you go - it's beautiful cross-sections of local trees inset in concrete. Our lunches were great, from the...
