The Neighborhood

Santa Teresa is one of Costa Rica's prime travel destinations attracting surfers and the younger crowds to its scenic beaches and great surf.

The beach of Santa Teresa is lined by a broad strip of woodland and as there are no high-rise buildings the coastline looks pristine, backed by jungle covered hills and with a long sweep of white sand washed by the pacific surf.

Santa Teresa's main road runs parallel to the coast on a potholed and dusty dirt road. The cross-cultural residents have created a multitude of restaurants and stores in Santa Teresa.

The town is a magnet of surfers and they can enjoy challenging waves for the experts and easy breaks of Playa Carmen for novice surfers.

Playa Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen rank among the most beautiful beaches of Costa Rica and you can take long hikes along the picturesque coastline, bathe in tide pools or find a chill place under a palm tree for loafing and reading your book - be sure to watch out for falling coconuts! Everything evening you can experience the most magical sunsets, this is an event attracting locals and tourists alike.

Getting Around

Local transport is easy to catch and within a few minutes walk, we have a local taxi driver who can pick you up within mins and great deals for bike, ATV and car only have to ask!

Playa Santa Teresa Cóbano, Costa Rica · Member since April 2013

Well traveled and now living in Santa Teresa for the last 8 years. I live here on the property and am available 24/7. If you need anything just ask, I am happy to organize transfers, surf lessons, board rental, quad tours, horse rides,canopy tours and much more.
I can also cook a bit and try to use good healthy NON GMO local produce. Home made bread in the mornings for breakfast, lunches, picnics, bbq dinners. no worries.
