Located a short walk from three miles of white sand beaches, Harbor Reef is surrounded by the astounding beauty of the tropical dry forest. Our rich natural land and seascape is part of Ostional Wildlife Refuge, protected by the National Park System of Costa Rica. Part of the Playa Guiones community for nearly 20 years, the hotel changed ownership and enjoyed a small renovation in 2016.
Harbor Reef is the ideal spot for those seeking to experience the beach that Natural Geographic Adventurer named as one of the world’s Top 20 surf locations. Playa Guiones offers a challenge for the seasoned surfer, and an opportunity for the beginner to stand up after just one lesson.
And between the early morning and late afternoon sets, experience any number of local adventures, from the rush of a canopy-top zip line to a lazy kayak paddle up the Nosara River. Or take it slower and enjoy a massage or a yoga class at any one of Nosara’s world class studios.
