The surf

Peak swell
Variable swell

What makes Playa Guiones a unique surf break is the diversity of types of waves, ranging from beginners to experienced surfers and the surf consistency. The bigger waves tend to be farther out and the softer waves can be caught inside.

Playa Guiones can hold a lot of size with open waves, sometimes peaking in the double overhead range. Guiones favors both south and northwest swells and easterly winds. The waves break at all tides, but the surf is usually best around the mid-tide. The ocean floor is pretty deep and a mix of sand and rocky reef, which makes it unlikely to touch bottom unless surfing at a much lower tide and in the inside zone.

In Costa Rica, the green season is from May through August. That's also known as the wet season, and it is the top time for surfing on the Pacific coast. The dry season is still great, though. The waters are warm and the waves are less powerful but friendly. So you can find spots to either learn to surf or hit the lip all year long.

The lodge

Just steps from the Pacific Ocean in Costa Rica’s most coveted neighborhood, the newly built Beach House embodies surfing in Costa Rica. Here, clean sophistication and best-in-class service unite with the intimate allure of a private beach home, creating a singular destination for exploring the best of the Coast’s lifestyle.

The beach is our backyard: hear the waves from your room and walk to the beach through our private path.

Ride On features modern facilities that gather creative and adventurous spirits enveloped in the lush raw jungle. We are the ideal home base for solo travelers, couples, and adventurous families looking to explore the magic that is Nosara. Melt into a tranquil state of mind in our well-appointed rooms.

Our location in a secluded corner of Nosara provides the perfect blend of privacy and proximity to everything that Guiones has to offer. A 2-minute walk through the jungle path leads to the sprawling Guiones coastline, boasting its picture-perfect surfable waves. A short walk or bike ride into town leads you to the best restaurants, bars, yoga studios, boutiques, and surf shops.

Located in the middle of the jungle, Ride On immediately sets you free from all your worries and brings you into communion with nature. Perfectly situated away from the hustle and bustle of our sleepy beach town, rest in the tropical peace of our lush gardens, open-air lounge, and refreshing pool.
