Directions from Liberia International Airport to Playa Guiones in Nosara

Upon departing from the airport you are going to make your first right turn onto the main road. There will be an Avis rent-a-car on the corner and you are going to be heading southwest on Route 21.

Continue heading south/southwest on Route 21 towards Palmira and Filadelfia. Continue on through the small towns of Belen and Santa Cruz following signs towards Nicoya. Remain on Route 21 for approximately 1 hour until you reach the city of Nicoya.

Immediately before turning off Route 21 into Nicoya you will see a Maxi Pali grocery store on your left and a brand new Burger King shortly after, also on the left side. Turn right just before the Burger King onto Route 150 (Calle 3) and continue on straight through the center of Nicoya. Take this road all the way through the center of Nicoya and continue straight onto 150.

Continue on Route 150 heading southwest for approximately 45 minutes. The road will be paved for this entire portion of the drive. About twenty minutes outside of Nicoya you will hit a small town where you can turn left or right. Turn right here and remain on the paved road through town. At approximately the 45 minute mark you will see a gas station on the left side. Immediately after the gas station you will turn right onto a newly paved road heading west towards Garza, Playa Guiones, and Nosara. Follow this road for approximately 25 minutes until you reach the main beach road, Route 160. At that point turn right towards Garza, Guiones, and Nosara. Passing through Garza, a small fishing village you will see a small beach on the left hand side with many boats anchored just off shore. Continue straight through Garza for another 15 minutes and you will reach Playa Guiones, the main beach of Nosara. When you see Marlin Bill’s and Coconut Harry’s on your right and Cafe de Paris on your left you know you are in the center of Guiones. To reach the RE/MAX office continue on another kilometer, past Giardino Tropicale, and turn left where you see the sign for the 4You Hostel and Living Hotel. The RE/MAX office is approximately 500 meters down on the right hand side.
