Situated in the vibrant core of Nosara, deCERCA Gallery showcases a diverse art collection featuring a wide range of Costa Rican artists, spanning from emerging talents to seasoned professionals. Our intent at Sendero Boutique Hotel was to ingrain beauty and inspiration into every moment of your visit to our property. As such, it’s impossible to miss deCERCA’s stimulating exhibition as you sit down to enjoy your amazing food at Sendero Kitchen, or make your way to your room.

DeCERCA’s carefully curated collection conceptualizes the country’s evolving art history, showcasing expressive figurative and abstract landscapes. Through an array of mixed mediums like paint, photography, installations and collage, the gallery seamlessly weaves together the creative perspectives of both modern and contemporary artists, encapsulating the rich tapestry of the local art scene.

Campo: Expand your artistic endeavors

Hidden in lush greenery a stone’s throw from the beach, Campo’s building and surrounding environment is as enchanting as its program offerings. From your stool in their El Estudio arts studio you may simply glance up for inspiration, from the glass paneled view of vibrant flora outside to displays of local artist’s works lining the walls, it’d be difficult to not find a source for your creativity.

Campo takes the cake when it comes to variety in offerings. Beyond their changing exhibitions and regularly scheduled ceramics, painting, and drawing classes, check out their calendar to browse classes like “ abstract art and microbiology workshop,” choir and experimental music,” letters of love,” and “exploring creativity and collaboration through flowers.” Cap your visit with a stop at La Ventanita for delicious dishes ranging from Costa Rican classics to creative fusions.
