At low tide Guiones can be explored by bicycle as well, and with you are able to access and walk the whole bay from north to south. If you head far enough south, you’ll find several large tide pools that make for excellent snorkeling and relaxing. Past those tide pools you will come upon Playa Rosada or Pink Beach, which is an amazing place to spend a few hours before the tide comes back in. It is only accessed during lower tides though as you have to walk across rocks that are covered up during higher tides. So, you must time your journey correctly. Pink Beach is one of the area’s true gems!

Then, at the far North end of Playa Guiones, you will see Punta Pelada. Standing tall, with it’s tall, unique spire sits the old Hotel Nosara. The hotel is now closed for business, but it is makes for a pretty neat place to walk around and explore and the bottom floor is open for visitors to walk through. Just make sure to ask the gardener if he is around and always be respectful. Also, there is a walking path to Playa Pelada that goes right past the hotel grounds. This makes for quick easy access to beautiful Playa Pelada.
