“…Okay Honey, it’s time to book our honeymoon…Wait a minute….with a real estate firm? Overseas?? That’s best known for it’s surf reports???”

Private luxuries await you with hand picked properties.

Chill-ax! Sounds unusual, booking your honeymoon with a real estate firm in Central America, but bear with me – we know you are reading this because you are an Anti-Bride and Destination I Do Diva: you know how to squeeze a dime and get the most luxe for less romance travel experience in captivity. So, if it’s luxe accommodations, privacy, a heart breaking view of the sun setting over the ocean, a wave for every surf level, a private chef and masseuse, and spectacular local cuisine that you want, look no futher than Surfing Nosara. Let’s face it, honeymoons are about deep relaxation after the sometimes stressful W-day, and although there is nothing wrong with the big chains and boutiques, there is a certain intrepid traveler that is looking for something a little more sublime and intimate.

Enter Surfing Nosara: Many of the private homes they represent are the sorts of “beach resorts” you would want to own if money were no object. Some are a short walk to the beach, the tiki bar, or the seafood restaurant featuring the catch of the day. You may want a surf lesson or a private couples massage. There is a possibility that you may want to sit by your private pool and read Danielle Steele novels all day. Whatever your desire, one thing is for sure: you will not be surrounded by anyone else sharing your private honeymoon experience unless you decide to engage. And for a little socializing, there are plenty of lovely beachside bars that concoct expertly mixed cocktails in the grand island tradition. A few of the top picks….
