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.
Breakfast included: 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.
Location: 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.
Other accommodation options: Please don't hesitate to inquire about our other accommodation options (Our 1BR and 2BR ocean view villas- listings can be found under my profile)

Just have fun!
This place is awesome. The view could not be better! The pool is very private and the view from the pool is incredible. Breakfast absolutely delicious. We have stayed in 5 separate b&bs on our trip, we loved this one so much we extended it. Juan is very helpful. It's totally worth driving up the hill for. In Santa Teresa you need a quad or a car no matter where you stay. The 2 minute drive from town was totally worth this place. You also have families of monkeys in the morning. It's amazing, we loved it!
Thank you Jaun!
Perfect location in S. Teresa and great host :) We had a lovely time at Juan's!
We had a wonderful stay at Juan's place. He's a very friendly and welcoming host! Our apartment was fairly big, very clean and with a nice balcony. Breakfast was delicious. Juan knows the area and all the good places.
The B&B is located perfectly; up the hill with a great view of the sea and off the hassel of the village.
Would definitely recommend staying here when coming to Santa Teresa.
I cannot recommend this place enough!!! By far the best place I've ever stayed in while traveling! The gumbo limbo was really a slice of paradise... We're already planning a trip back as soon as possible. Juan was an incredible host and really went ABOVE AND BEYOND any of our expectations. We arrived by bus and after 18 hours of travelling he was kind enough to pick us up on the main road in Santa Teresa at midnight. He gave us a tour of the town and helped us with everything from renting a quad to ordering food. THE VIEW OH. MY. GOD. Incredible. We spent alot of time on the patio that overlooks the ocean drinking beers. And the balcony. I can't say enough about it. My biggest regret is not staying there longer! 3 days was not enough. And the animals were so friendly and snuggly. The daily cleanings were AMAZING. We probably showered a total of 10 times while we were there just so we could go in the outdoor shower. This is place everyone should visit! And don't make the same mistake we did, STAY A WHILE!
Great place to stay with a beautiful view. Though you need a 4x4 to get there and you won't find that out until you reserve and the guy contacts you for the first time and lets you know that you will need it, and trust me, you do. once you get there the room is small but cozy and you can see the ocean view from the shower too. The infinity pool also over looks the ocean, but the sunset is blocked by the trees.
El lugar es increíble ... Es un camino difícil de alcanzar para quien no tiene un coche 4X4, pero vale la pena por la vista y por la arquitectura que se ha diferenciado por los baños al aire libre, que es apropiada por el clima, el cual tiene la consecuencia de la ausencia de olor molde, una característica típica de otros lugares que nos quedamos cerca de las playas. Para aquellos que esperan un servicio de hotel se olvide! La propuesta es como visitar la casa de un amigo, algo mas informal. Juan tiene un perro y un gato muy amables que rompe corazones, fue muy atento con nosotros, la cocina está bien equipada y nos dejó la voluntad de gestionar donde producimos increíbles comidas que compartimos como una família! Estamos muy agradecidos, De cierto volveriamos con mucho gusto!
Das war ein toller Aufenthalt bei Juan. Der Ausblick ist wunderbar, die Location chillig, die Zimmer super, mit outdoor Dusche. Das Frühstück war wunderbar. Du bist mitten in der Natur und kannst eine Menge Tiere beobachten, insbesondere Vögel, Schmetterlinge usw.. Der Sound der Wellen ist einmalig, man höhrt keine Straße wie unten in Santa Teresa. Ein mal sollte man den Weg runter und wieder hoch zu Fuß machen. Danke an Juan und das ganze Team für diesen unvergesslichen Aufenhalt.

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!
