Casa Gecko is a private, rather secluded house built on the side of a hill overlooking the Pacific ocean. The beach is only a 5 to 10 minute walk. The area of Nosara is well known for surfing and yoga centers.
This is not a big nightlife area, although there are numerous restaurant/bars available. Other activities include:
Deep sea fishing
And, of course, just relaxing on the beach or around the infinity pool
Having a car is best, but there are taxis available.
