Nosara, Guanacaste

At Sendero, you can have the chic boutique experience AND world-class, consistent waves on your doorstep. Walk under 5 minutes through a trail from the hotel to reach the serene beauty and perfect surf conditions of Guiones Beach. As part of the protected Ostional Turtle Refuge, there are no buildings within 200 meters of the beach!
The property´s 25 rooms and suites combine a muted palette and earthy materials with stylish clean lines and contemporary decorative details that add pops of color. Suites count with a kitchenette in the living room and a private outdoor area for relaxing.

  • Why we love it
  • Highlights
  • Sustainability

This is one of the coolest hotels we´ve found in Costa Rica! Think Art Deco meets contemporary boutique aesthetic with a community vibe. We loved sipping a great coffee at the hotel´s chic restaurant before zigzagging through a rainforest path for a surfing session at the beach - Sendero has its own surf concierge so it couldn´t be easier to hit the waves!

Sendero has implemented various measures in a conscious effort to minimize its negative effects on the environment and support its local communities.

The hotel was built on an existing, previously developed footprint, adding only a swimming pool, and using repurposed clay bricks, clay tiles, and rapid-growth wood from responsible teak farms. Through a high-quality treatment system, all black water is transformed and reused for irrigation and the property uses energy efficient A/C units and water heaters, as well as hi-R- value insulation on roofs throughout the building.

Amenities in guest rooms are local and organic, plus a high percentage of the restaurant's ingredients are sourced from suppliers in the area. All hotel, restaurant and surf school staff are locals or residents, employed year-round and with corresponding social security. Sendero also features an on-site art gallery that showcases and sells the work of exclusively Costa Rican artists. The property is in the process of installing photovoltaic panels that will cover at least 50% of the building's electricity demands.
