Wondering what to do while on your vacation at Villa Tortuga? Well, we can help you find all kinds of adventures depending on your proclivities and abilities. The most common activities that our guests participate in are Surfing, Body Health, & Fishing.
Whether a beginner, intermediate or advanced surfer, Playa Guiones has a wave for you. Villa Tortuga is located just in front of the main north-end break which will get your paddling skills honed in no time. We offer surf instruction through The Frog Pad using Nosara CR Surf School instructors who have been working with students throughout the last decade. We also have a wide range of long and short boards to rent for your next vacation.
The Nosara Yoga Institute had been a staple in the area for decades providing unparalleled quality classes in the area as well as teacher training courses. Since being absorbed by Bodhi Tree, many instructors have scattered themselves around Playa Guiones and they offer instruction at various locations throughout. Pilates Nosara opened up in 2011 and it has taken off. They now offer teacher training as well as mat and reformer classes locally.
Nosara Fishing has been a draw to the area even before surfers started making their way to Playa Guiones. The local beaches of Playa Garza and Playa Pelada are the launching pads for fishermen from around the world looking to catch anything from Tuna to a Blue Marlin. Rates are about $650 for a half-day and $1100 for a full-day.
A good majority of our guests hit the Zip-lines (Canopy Tour) at least one time if not every time they are in Nosara. Horseback Riding along the beach, sunrise or sunset is very popular and another favorite is to go up and down the Nosara River on a SUP or Kayak.
Other activities include an escort to show you our local Waterfall “Malanoche” outside of Nosara, Quad Tours of the back roads and fields, and Snorkeling in San Juanillo. Inquire here or at The Frog Pad and we’ll get you ready for your next adventure.
