Clothing Optional Costa Rica

Written by Bibi. Posted in Naturist resorts and accommodation

cocr poolThis small and unique complex of vacation rental apartments is owned and operated by Bibi and Arne, who are both born in Denmark. Ever since they started dating in 11th grade at Sorø Akademi, they have preferred to enjoy sun, sand and sea without clothes. That was easy while they were still living in Denmark, but after moving to Virginia after finishing their educations, the chances were fewer.

While raising two kids and getting established in the “American Dream”, a desire to have a nudist or at least clothing optional place of their own slowly formed. At first, it was just going to be a CO B&B in the US, but then the dream developed into owning a whole island in the Caribbean for a place where people could come and be naked all the time. While fantasizing, “jobs” were even assigned to friends and kids.

On a trip to Nosara, Costa Rica, in 2000, Bibi and Arne fell in love with the area. A lot for sale, very cheaply, “had their name on it”, and the island from the dream morphed into a ½ acre piece of land with an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean and five banana palms, in walking distance of three beaches and a river. Over the next four years, two buildings, each with three apartments, a pool house and a big pool were built. Having to wait for plants to grow up and money to be saved up for fences and walls, so complete privacy from the outside could be achieved, Casa Banda catered to the clothed section of the vacationers coming to Nosara.

Each of the apartments, sleeping 2 – 4 people, have full kitchens and are very well equipped for staying a while. Being able to prepare meals “at home” is both more economical than eating out all the time and more comfortable for those with special dietary needs.

In the fall of 2010, it was finally private enough on the property to welcome the first nude guests. Just one couple had stumbled over www.COCR.info at this time, but they came back for more nude time under the sun and the palm trees the following years. Fortunately, others also found their way to Nosara, and during the months of January, February and March, the Casa BandA apartments are solely available for people who like to enjoy life clothes free. About 90% of guests come from North America, evenly split between Canadians and people from USA, and several of them are repeat guests. Age wise, the locale seems to appeal to couples, 50 – 70 years old, but singles are not excluded. The rest of the clientele are from a variety of places around the world. The rest of the year, guests are from either “camp”, with or without clothes. There is a minimum age of 18 years for guests, and pets also have to stay at home, so it is a place with all the peace and quiet – or fun get-togethers by the BBQ as grown-ups can wish for. Arne and Bibi live on site and with the help of a small staff make sure that everything is in order for the guests.

Tropical Costa Rica can be found between Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south, on the isthmus between North and South America. The part of the country where Nosara is located has two distinct seasons: dry season from mid-November – mid-May and a green (rainy) season the rest of the year. Although Costa Rica is a small place, the size of Denmark, there are several and very varied climate zones. Especially October is very wet everywhere and not a good time to be a tourist. In Nosara, December and January offers the most pleasant climate.

The Costa Ricans don’t seem to have a lot of problems with nudity, find it “normal and natural”, but the country does not allow public nudity. All beaches are public, so per definition there are no nude beaches in Costa Rica. However, around the country there are many more or less deserted beaches, where it is possible to enjoy some rays and the waves while “barefoot all over”.

The nearest international airport is Liberia (LIR), a good two hours from Nosara by car. 4-5 hours away, lays the other international airport, in the capital of San Jose (SJO). Renting a car to get from-to the airport and while staying at Casa BandA, is the most convenient option, but there are alternatives with shuttles, taxis and buses. Wheels are not needed to walk to the local beaches, but for most restaurants and for grocery shopping, some kind of transportation is required.

The website contains much information, and if that is not enough, emails will be answered quickly, in English, Danish or Spanish.

5 reasons to visit Le Colombier naturist camping

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Naturist resorts and accommodation

Baignade nocturne - nachtzwemmen
In the summer 2014 my wife and I visited Le Colombier Naturist camping with our 5 year old son. We didn’t know much about Le Colombier Naturist camping and we didn’t know much about the area. We had a splendid time there and can reccommend that other naturists visit the place, it is absolutely worth it. Here is my top 5 reasons why Le Colombier Naturist camping is worth a visit.

Le Colombier, naturist camping in the middle of the French forests and medieval villages

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Blog, Naturist resorts and accommodation

Picture from Le ColombierIt was getting late in the afternoon. The sun was baking us alive, through through the window of our car which didn’t have any airocnucondition, we were drenched with sweat on our bodies and our clothes was like glued to the seats which now had housed us in the two days it took us to the drive from Aarhus to St . Hermaine, Loire Valley – southwest of Paris, south of Normandy and Brittany, north of Bordeaux and 50 km. from the Atlantic Ocean.

But we were on the road, and even our 5-year-old boy, Sebastian was now so excited about what was going to happen, we all sat with wide open eyes and spoke the last few kilometers before we drove from the highway.

Ahead we had a week’s campout at naturist campsite Le Colombier, and although the sun was baking right now, we could see large dark clouds draw in over the golden cornfields and threaten to spoil the tent setup and everything we had been looking forward to.

We turned off at St. Hermaine, and with the phone set to Data Roaming we steered through the most picturesque French villages, left, right, right, left, and right around … The rain put tiny round beads on the windshield and we started to find our natural temperature-rent again. And before we knew it, we turned from knowing from Streetview home that we were on the right track, and managed to arrive at Le Colombier without rain anymore.

Le Colombier

The entrance to Le Colombier is a long road with tall trees and dense vegetation. Almost like disappearing into a deep dark forest, and suddenly discover that the woods are full of open spaces and naked people.

We had arrived too late to the reception should be open, but we were lucky that day. They had been busy that they, and had not had time to close. The welcome was warm and welcoming and we got to find us a good spot to pitch your tent and come back next morning to check-in.

We found ourselves a spot. With tent-back against the shrubbery and views over fields and forests, we had found our home for the next 7 days.

The evening opened a traveling circus, and when the lights came on and the clowns were laughing, we sat tired and tender in our tent opening and looked up into the most amazing star-covered sky. This should probably be fine.

7 days disappears fast at Le Colombier, St. Jermaine

Besides the many daily moments of fun and rituals when you are camping with his family, so we were placed in a natural area that gave us the opportunity to go for walks and explore the lakes and forest.

Le Colombier is huge and each tent pitch is huge and with lots of room to spread filling. So we did – when we have not had in the pool, or hang out downstairs in the restaurant, where we also took our dinner a couple of times.

The main buildings at Le Colombier is an old rustic farm which requires both a reception, restaurant, bar and grocery store. The place exudes authenticity when the old stone oven from the Medieval are lit with wood from the sorrounding forests and creates the heath for the homemade pizzas that are baked the same evening.

Here are all sorts of people, and not least many families characterized the area. Le Colombier had, however, to promote naturism in adolescents invited a Dutch young-naturist club to stay for 14 days. Apart from that it was a good idea to integrate the diversity of different age groups, it also created sleepless nights and loud music.

Discovering France

We found ourselves in an area of France that I never really heard of before. It was not because we could find so much about it in the books we had borrowed about the area. But France Tourism is well established and happily shares their many attractions in the area.

We went exploring every day and visited exciting medieval towns, castles, palaces and mansions. Every trip revealed new exiting places that wasn’t described anywhere. Once again we had to conclude that France has much more to offer than they manage to describe.

Several of the days we went to the beach. We drove to different beaches and found two naturist beaches. One was called La Terriers and it was wonderful, relaxed, wave-rich and the other was huge and unfortunately very windy. Both beaches were worth the drive, especially for the natural surroundings.

Suddenly, time had passed. Our tent took in water when it rained. The many sleepless nights made us tired and although we had an adventure and a wonderful holiday, we were pleased to drive home again.

We were driving home one afternoon, and with the sun in the neck, we took the trip back to Denmark. When we unpacked our clothes our backpacks and emptied the car – sand fell out of the car, pine cones and a spicy fragrance from the French forests … Best as you think it – a deep and adventurous, forests opens up with happy nudes 🙂

Thanks to Le Colombier for having opened their forest for us. Sebastian, Peter and Lise

Costa Natura improvements in 2014

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Naturist resorts and accommodation

Costa NaturaCosta Natura located in Estepona, Spain contacts all previous visitors to present their new booking system. I think that is a really good thing, because the old one was really bad, it was terrible hard to find the right appartment – but looking at the new webpage it really looks like a major change. At the same time I have got a mail from the manager that they also have made some large changes to how things is managed at Costa Natura. I also appreciate that change, because I really had a bad experience with that in 2013 (read my reviews of Costa Natura).

All in all it looks like everything has changed for the better 🙂

Congratiulations Costa Natura – this is really good news

Review of Costa Natura naturist village in Spain

Written by Peter Terp. Posted in Blog, Naturist resorts and accommodation

Costa NaturaCosta Natura is actually the first naturist village in Spain. The village is located in the outskirts of Estepona in the Malaga region in Spain and is located on a official naturist beach.

We arrived in the evening after one week in Algarve, Portugal. The weather in Algarve was warm, but it was even hotter at Costa Natura – 36 celcius in the shade 18:00 in the evening – HOT!
The reception was closed when we arrived, but that was no problem, there was a number to call and we checked in without any problems. The introduction was minimal though – probably because of the closed reception.

When we first had a look at our accommodation we were happily supprised that we had a great sea view and 2 terasses. We had ofcourse ordered that but sometimes the sea view is like “If you look at the corner over there and take the binoculars on you can see the sea”. This was actually real seaview, and the beach was only 30 meters away from where we stayed. A really good first impression.

Wasp nest
We packed some of our stuff out, and got some air into the appartment just to make it cool down, went up on one of the terasses. Suddenly i got stung by something like a bee or wasp. Damn, that hurt, but eventhough, I was just happy that it wasn’t my 4 year old son or my wife who is allergic to bee stings. We talked a little while I was swearing about the sting, suddenly another sting hits me. I take a look around and discovers that there is a waspnest at the terrace. We of course hurry away from the terrace and calls the guy who helped us at the reception. He told us that it might be hard to get things done the same night and even might be hard to get the problem fixed the next day (saturday). I of course told him we couldn’t use the terrace and that we had a son on 4 we therefore needed it fixed the next day, which he accepted.

The next day we were out on some sightseeing and we was back at our appartment around 19.00 in the evening, the reception was therefore closed and there wasn’t anybody we could ask about how the waspnest issue had ended. We went to the appartment and checked for the nest – it was still there, there were no notes or anything about what the status was. I called the man from the day before and asked him for the help. He said that we had to wait until the day after. I don’t think that is responsible act for a problem like that, so I insisted that I needed to talk to somebody who knew about the problem, but without any luck – or I should rather say I got another phonenumber I could call, but which wasn’t answered. I was mad as hell about it, very inresponsible with a nest like that.

The following day we got a talk with the receptionist – a french woman who was really helpsome – and the problem was fixed a few hours later, and that was on a sunday. I wonder why I needed to fight so hard about solving a thing that was fixed on no time (It actually only took 5 min. when the fixing guy arrived).

Internet and childplay
The day after we arrived I bought Internet access for a week. It costed 20 EUR for a 512kb Internet connection, which we could only use on one device. I thought it was rather expensive, but ok that was what we could get. The Internet didn’t performe at all – I havent checked the speed of the Internet but it deffinetly wasn’t close to being a 512KB connection. I tried to download a book on Amazon for my Kindle and it timed out, as it did for many other things. I couldn’t just log of the Internet on one device and then use it on another device either, the Internet was locked for the first device I had connected with. All in all not worth the money – I wouldn’t reccomend buying Internet at Costa Natura.

After 6 days on Costa Natura, a woman suddenly came by while we were playing buy the pool with our son. She told that she arranged childrensplay at Costa Natura everyday. We could just contact her and she would arrange some childplay with all the children who wanted to participate. I think that was a really good thing actually, because our son missed some other children to play with. The sad thing is that we wasn’t informed about that this existed before, after all most people stay for 1-2 weeks at the place – I therefore find it rather late to inform about 6 days into the stay (we were staying there for 9 days).

The place

Accommodation
The accommodation or should I call it housing consist of small houses/appartments which typically consist of 2 rooms separated by either curtain or a sliding door. There is a small kitchen and a toilet. Typically there are 1 – 2 terraces depending on the which appartment you have – we stayed a place with 2 terraces, one with a view and one which was a bit more sheltered. All in all I think the appartment was good. They are private owned, and you can not be sure that they all are equpped equaly inside, ours was a bit old fashoned, but it worked fine for us. I actullay think the idea of the appartments was good.

Natural sorroundings
This hasn’t been all negative, the village is actually quite ok, and we had a good time there. There is no natural nature there but the “park nature” which is done really fine.

Pools
There are two swimming pools one for small children (40 cm deep) and one for adults/larger children (110-140cm deep). Both of the pools has salt water, which is the first time I experience that – but that was actually really good. The salt water feels more natural to swim in and you don’t have the feeling of chemicals (Chlor) when you get out of the pool. And then its not so hard on the eyes.

Eating and drinking
There is a restaurant which is located just next to the pool. The food in the restaurant was actually quite ok, but the serving was some how slow. There is also a small beach bar close to the beach – I didn’t try that, but I am sure that it was ok, it only served basic stuff like most beach bars do.

For children
There was a small playground and there was the pool and the beach – I think that is actually all a child needs to have fun.

The beach
The beach which Costa Natura is located on is ok, not something sppecial, but ok. The good thing is that it is close to the accommodation and really easy access to the beach.

My judgement

The place was not exactly the style I normally go for when I am on vacation, but I found it ok for what it was. I usually prefer more natural setting where nature is more wild, and the site is not quite as charter-like. There is basically nothing wrong with the place, it was as I said, quite fine, and the apartments were quite ok. However, it was not ok that we had to fight so hard to make them remove a wasp nest from our terrace, and it was not ok that the internet was that expensive, when it was so unbelievably bad. A third thing was that when they offer to arrange childrens playing on site, then there is no point in first informing about it after you have been at to places in 6 days. All in all, I give Costa Natura a character on 3 out of 5 because of the problems that have been on the spot.
