Gumbo Limbo is a boutique bed & breakfast located in the hills of Santa Teresa, just 600 meters to Santa Teresa beach and town. Along with stunning ocean views, Gumbo Limbo's central, hilltop location provides seclusion- a nice break from the bustle of town, while being only a 2 minute drive to the beach and main road. As we are situated on a large hill, a 4x4 vehicle, which is generally better for Costa Rica roads, is needed to reach our property.
Each of our villas is surrounded by tropical lush nature, giving total privacy and a real feeling of being in the jungle, while still having complete comfort. From every corner of our property, you can find amazing ocean and mountain views. Our beautiful infinity pool is the perfect spot to relax and watch the best sunsets Santa Teresa has to offer.
A full daily breakfast with fresh fruits/yogurt/granola, scrambled eggs and gallo pinto (Costa Rican traditional breakfast) is served daily in our ocean view dining area and is included in the rate.
We are located 600 meters from Santa Teresa Beach and town, just 2 minutes drive to the beach access road, many restaurants and cafes. As we are situated on a hill, we recommend a 4x4 vehicle to reach us, which is generally better for Costa Rica roads. We are happy to assist with ATV/quad or car rental if you need, and can also help if you have any questions about tours, activities or surf lessons.

Just have fun!
Our stay at Gumbo Limbo was really nice. Juan and Ali were extremely helpful with anything and everything. It was nice to be up on the hill with the view and away from the dust of the main road. Thank you so much for a memorable stay.
We had such a great time at Gumbo Limbo! The one-bedroom villa was beautiful, clean and private. The bed was also very big and comfortable. It was so nice to be close to the beach (only a few minutes drive) but also far from the main road. The view, the pool and the sunsets were just amazing. The fruits, eggs and gallo pinto were so good in the morning. Juan and everyone there were so welcoming. I would definitely recommend this place! Thanks for having us!
Gumbo Limbo is a very beautiful bed and breakfast, set in the hills of Santa Teresa, only a short walk or quick car ride to the beach. We especially enjoyed staying in Villa Indio- so spacious, with own private deck overlooking the infinity pool and outdoor bathroom and shower facing the rainforest! I really loved being up the hill far from the noise of the busy road, the ocean views and sunsets were amazing! The restaurant at Gumbo Limbo is great as well- breakfast every morning consisted of a huge goblet of fresh fruit, granola and yogurt. You could order pancakes or eggs as well. We had lunch and dinner a few times while we stayed and each meal- whether it was fish tacos, fresh mahi mahi or steak sandwiches, was awesome. These boys can cook! Lastly, I can't say enough about Juan and Ale's hospitality, it's like hanging out with good friends and they make you feel at home. I would highly recommend staying here.
We loved the location of the villa. The view and the selection of rare birds on the tree in the morning. Fantastic hospitality and felt really taken care of by Juan, Alejandro and Sarah. Our lovely Argentine hosts gave the best BBQ and as Australians we were blown away. No a/c in our villa and intermittent wifi but this was not an issue as we were on top of paradise looking over the pacific. Days were spend swimming in the divine infinity pool and relaxing in our hammock. We even had a surprise visit from a troop of "white face" monkeys and hummingbirds which made our stay unforgettable. Highly recommend this villa and planning our return trip.
We had a Fantastic stay in the 2 Bedroom Villa overlooking Santa Teresa and the Ocean. We were there for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. We recommend Gumbo Limbo villas and hope to return some day.

About the Host, Juan
Mi adicción es surfear, lo que me ha llevado estos últimos años a distintos lugares y he aprendido que viajando se conoce gente que vale la pena. Espero ahora poder tener la oportunidad de hospedar a esas personas!
