Does this childhood dream ever go away? For many of us, apparently not. A Colorado couple made their dream a reality in the Costa Rican rainforest by creating a treehouse community called Finca Bellavista, a fantastic yet real treetop paradise where people can live out their dreams. The whole of the property is now close to […]
The Garden State never looked so cool. From The Intertia: Winter in New Jersey is always cold. This winter, however, we’ve seen things that we will never forget. The ocean itself has dropped down to 29° F, freezing its water, and the air has been below 0° F for those early morning surfs. With temperatures like […]

This fantastic video, compliments of John, summarizes my entire surfing experience (with or without a riptide) and reminds me of a not-so-pretty riptide rescue in Montauk summer 2010 (rescued ON a surfboard!). Two steps forward from chris levi on Vimeo.

You may have met Lee at the Harmony. She’s the curator of our Tiendita, a long-time Nosara long boarder and a bad ass. Like many of the folks who work with the Harmony, she found her way to Nosara for the waves. When she’s not in Costa Rica, Lee lives and surfs in Miami. Name: […]

Of course, I love Nosara. And I assume if you’re reading this, you love Nosara. But how do you feel about many, many, many people loving Nosara? Last week, CNN voted it one of the top places in the world to visit for the second year in a row.

“I’ve been surfing for so long that my perspective is really steeped in the way surfers see things,” said the artist, whose oil and fiberglass compositions “Backdoor” and “Pipeline” depict what it’s like to be underwater, behind a barreling wave, while another surfer is streaking through a tube above you. “I can look at them […]
If you happen to be one of the lucky people in Nosara as the cooler weather descends in other parts of the world, tonight’s your night to experience the Tropicana, the legendary local disco. Singer-songwriter and pro-surfer Donavon Frankenreiter is returning to Nosara after a two year absence and will be performing at 9pm in […]
Willis Elkins’ work reminded me of the many beach cleanups I’ve participated in at the Harmony Hotel where we go out to collect debris from Playa Guiones in the late afternoons. The Brooklyn-based artist took an inflatable raft (and later kayak) to travel NYC waterways where the rising and falling tide can both create a […]
Launching this week, The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project is a series of artist-produced billboards that will unfold along the Interstate 10 Freeway from the Atlantic to the Pacific. This cross-country art project will map out the American fantasy of Westward expansionism by moving through and punctuating the narrative of the landscape itself. Initiated by artist […]
An excellent article on the competitive sport that travel has become made me long for the simple pleasures of a trip to the Harmony. “We now live in a world of capitalized extremities: the Ultimate Experience now poses a threat to the kind of small revelations that can make us happy. Travelers, by which I […]

Never thought too much about Singapore until I recently read about this beautiful hotel that has combined futuristic architectural design with organic details and yes, a four-story tall sky-garden with cascading vertical greenery. WOHA architectural firm executed the “hotel-in-a-garden” concept within a city that is striving to be “a city in a garden.” Who knew?
Art is a completed pass. You don’t just throw it out into the world—someone has to catch it.—James Turrell The Turrell exhibit at the Guggenheim in NYC closes in less than a month on September 25th. Don’t miss it.
Brazilian architect Madeira de Redescobrimento [demolition and reused materials] was a natural progression and nowadays this is the main material used. Recently the atelier has begun using wood sourced from FSC [Forest Stewardship Council] certified companies. In the work of the atelier, the encounter with architecture was at the same time peculiar and immediate. From […]
