Guiones Will Have 4,000 More Trees on its Beach

By Emiliana García

In June, Costas Verdes, a non-governmental organization, will plant 4,000 trees along Playa Guiones. "Our goal is to create biological corridors in order to restore, first the flora and then the fauna, in areas where wildlife has been eliminated, such as Guiones", explained Max Tattenbach, President of Costas Verdes.

This organization seeks to restore public domain ecosystems that have been deforested, as is the case with most of the Ostional Wildlife Refuge, specifically in Guiones. "Costas Verdes is the result of my love towards Costa Rican beaches and of my frustration when seeing that many of the beaches I visited had no trees or shade. It was hard to believe that a public piece of land could remain in such a state of degradation for so long".


The project has been in a planning stage for over a year since it has required extensive preparation: gathering seeds from native coastal species, getting research permits from the Ministry of Energy and Environment (MINAET) in order to restore the refuge, creating nurseries and providing maintenance. Finally, starting early June, the organization's volunteers will be working on the sowing phase.

Planting will take place from the cemetery up to the northern tip of Playa Guiones, which is the area most exposed to the public and more needed by people. Tattenbach is inviting all residents and tourists to come and help out in planting trees, since they "are in great need of volunteers and on-site helpers".

If you wish to volunteer or make a donation, which will be used to purchase the required materials (shovels, soil, fertilizer, etc.), please call 8730-2507 or contact the Nosara Civic Association (2682-0008), who is helping fund the project.

Dog Culture on Display

Nosara’s first annual dog show, “Go Dog Go,” provided an enjoyable if somewhat wet opportunity for residents to demonstrate that their pets are part of the local culture, friendly if a bit undisciplined.

The Mala Noche: the hidden treasure in the mountains

While Nosara's world-class beaches are the magnets for visitors and residents alike, there are also treasures hidden in the hillsides, such as the Mala Noche waterfall. This waterfall can be found on a creek that feeds the Rio Nosara, just a short distance past the Nosara high school.
