If you travel to Costa Rica then you must make your way to Nosara; a sleepy surfer town on the Nicoya Peninsula. You have to take the road less traveled (or at least the bumpier road) in order to get there, but it’s definitely worth the trek.

In addition to excellent food, stunning beaches and an abundance of yoga classes, you will also find a unique shopping experience at Love Nosara. Located just a hop, skip and a jump from Playa Guiones this innovative boutique store is a one-stop-shop for clothing, souvenirs and gifts.


Co-owners Susana Brown and Manolo Jaramillo created  Love Nosara so that visitors could bring back one-of-a-kind functional art pieces that represented the true spirit of Nosara. It’s more than a store; it’s a concept. Completely outdoors, this brilliant shop is an expression of love for art, nature, travel, creativity, innovation and fashion.


Susana designs everything from the prints on the tees and hats to the leather bags, sandals and clothing – which are then crafted by a series of local artisans, who are also a part of the  Love Nosara family.

Manolo is the brainchild behind the unique design of this outdoor oasis. Using reclaimed wood, he built a store that feels more like a gallery; with the intention to expose an ever changing collection of works, as opposed to a permanent collection. The quality of their products, combined with the eclectic design, truly represents the unique experience that is Nosara.
