The magic of Nosara is no accident. It's the result of the vision and hard work of the Nosrara Civic Association and its valued members, who since 1975 promote development that works hand in hand with nature. Our dream is to build a community that values the well-being of all living things. The Nosara Civic Association has been at the heart of the Nosara community: promoting planning, civic activism, and conservation.

Without the Civic Association, Nosara would not be as green and full of jungle as it is today. Thanks to the work of the Association, the Guiones and Pelada beaches are part of the Ostional National Wildlife Refuge - an area that the state maintains for  conservation and enjoyment by future generations.

The Association does so much more, it protects and owns more than 240 hectares of land which were once bare pastures. Today they are secondary forests, which, according to the National University, capture an average of 7.8 tons of carbon per hectare per year. To date, each hectare of forest in the Association stores 251 tons of carbon.

Without the Civic Association, the Nosara community would continue to have an open-air dump. Currently we are working on its technical closure, and ultimately to turn it into a public park for the community. Nor would there be natural trails for walking. There are more than 12 kilometers of trails that the Association maintains, to promote the mobility of residents and visitors to the community.

Your donation will also help us protect Nosara’s largest private reserve, owned by the NCA for wildlife conservation. We invite everyone who loves and cares about Nosara to support our programs of biodiversity conservation, scientific research, citizen empowerment, mobility, and government advocacy.
