Nosara is an idyllic beach town on the Pacific coast in northwest Costa Rica, the Nicoyan Peninsula. As they say in Nosara: no shoes, no shirt, no problem, it's a relaxed place to live. The Nicoya Peninsula is one of only five Blue Zones in the world, and Nosara is one of them. As defined by National Geographic, a Blue Zone is a region of the world where people have lived much longer than average. More centenarians live in these areas than anywhere else. Longer life here is attributed to natural eating habits, physical lifestyles, strong family ties, and good friendships.
The town of Nosara has grocery stores, pharmacies, a post office, a police station, a clinic and a small airport. As one of the last remaining beach destinations in Costa Rica with unpaved roads, it's traditionally a hidden gem as tourists tend to flock to the more accessible Gold Coast to the north. The local economy offers well-paid jobs in tourism and crafts and crime is almost non-existent. Nosara is also a perfect place for expats looking to escape the brutal winters of North America with average tropical temperatures of 75-90 ° F.
