In lieu of gifts, please feel free to donate to the Bomberos of Nosara, a local volunteer fire department.
Only a decade ago, a serious fire in Nosara meant waiting for the regional Fire Department to travel over an hour on bad roads. Despite best efforts, their arrival time was often too late. In November 2009 a local resident decided this life or death time delay demanded a local response. Armed with basic, donated firefighting equipment he sounded a rallying cry for volunteer firefighters. The call was answered by a small, committed crew of selfless public servants ready to take up the fight.
As a volunteer organization, it can be a real struggle to acquire the correct safety gear, supplies, equipment, clothing, vehicle maintenance and fuel that they need. This all requires extensive financial funding, which can only be raised via donations.
