A Costa Rica vacation means adventure and fun in the tropics, and Bella Vista Mar can help you plan the ideal escape!

No other hotel in Nosara Costa Rica can offer a more beautiful panoramic view of the ocean and of Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada. Located upon a hilltop, Bella Vista Mar truly lives up to its name.

We are conveniently located for all your vacation activities, and will help you plan to do as much or as little while you are here. Horseback riding? World's longest zipline? Sportfishing? We've got all that and MORE! Our friendly staff and homey atmosphere are the ideal combination for a perfect vacation destination.

The hotel property is ideally configured with accommodations on the main entry level, and the pool and pool house terraced just below. Additional accommodations nearby allow us to host groups of up to 25 a comfortable stay for retreat, workshop or family gatherings. All rooms have private bath, and all except one have ocean views.

Landscaping is a mix of lush tropical vegetation and there are always fresh flowers blooming. The constant breeze and swaying palms add to the tropical ambiance. Visiting pizote’s, iguanas, parrots and monkeys complete the picture! No matter where you are on the property there are sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean.

The pool level is surrounded by banana trees and colorful foliage. On this level you will also find a large pool house – big enough for weddings, workshop events, family gatherings or yoga.  The inviting pool offers the perfect place to relax and refresh.
