Interaction with Guests

This is our house so you will always find us @ Kokua. We work daily on our orchard, we are nature lovers, we love surfing and showing around the area to our guests. If work permits... we'll try to tag along with you. We know the best places around the area, including the secret ones ;) We also love cooking!! so long dinner tables with laughs and (website hidden) are part of our DNA. We would love to hear your story.

The Neighborhood

Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are towns facing the Pacific Ocean, nestled into the coastal mountains of the Nicoya Peninsula, touching the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve. Santa Teresa is surfable almost every day (that's why most of us are here!) we're close by to waterfalls and fresh water rivers. Monkeys and Iguanas are seen daily.
Wake up to the sound of nature, grab a mug of our complimentary coffee and mingle outside with the squirrels or fellow travelers, lay on a hammock or just take a 3 minutes walk to the beach and enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in Central America.
Whether you´re looking for AC comfort or just a hammock in our fruit garden, in Kokua Hostel we have you covered.
