Driftwood is in the Playa Pelada neighborhood of Nosara. A calm, tranquil, and jungly part of town where you feel close enough to everything, but quiet enough to find that peace you are looking for. Driftwood is situated in the lush forest between the river mouth of Rio Nosara and the empty white sand beach of Playa Pelada.

There are many beautiful paths and hike trails that start right at our hotel in which you can spot monkeys, armadillos, Iguanas, birds, raccoons and pisotes, and lead you to amazing cliffs, private secret beaches and beautiful spots for sunsets. The lake, which is the meeting point of rio Nosara and rio Montana is a short walk from the hotel entrance and its full with life. A walk through the river mouth (in low tide) will bring you to the surf spot of playa Nosara, a gem, not everyone knows about. As well, our property is conveniently located a mere 4 km away from world famous surf destination Guiones beach, home of many amazing café´s restaurants and one of the best waves in Costa Rica for beginners and experienced surfers alike.
