This is not a lie - there is an insane Dutchman who goes by "The Dutchman" who is dirty and has rotten teeth and who is worth tracking down - he speaks English well and can put you in touch with who you need to be in touch with. If you go to a bar in Nosara, he will be there, making tracking him down much easier.
Also, coconut harry is a d-bag, but many a fine tica works for him.
Easy on the point. The locals are cool sharing waves, but the point seems to be for ticos only. Plenty of good sandbar action all over. Nosara is a real sweet place. Better 15 years ago, but still sweet.
