Our secret ingredients
are the products we
procure from our neighbors

Nosara is a community recognized for its healthy lifestyles and culture of wellness. Located in a Blue Zone: a region of the world where people live longer than average, our coastal town is surrounded with hilltops and valleys that are perfect for growing a great variety of crops.

We honor this with the drinks and meals we serve at Huacas, prepared with fresh products raised or caught by our friends in the community. Our plates are handcrafted by a family in the Chorotega community, an indigenous group located in the northern village of Guaitil. Not only are each of our meals delectable, but they’re locally-sourced, season-based, organic and grass fed – because that’s how food should be.

From soil and sea to the table, your meal was raised, crafted and presented with loving hands.
