Beautiful. One of the best places to surf. Stunning atmosphere with rocks at some of the shoreline and miles and miles of surf-worthy ocean. Tropico Latino guests can lay out in hammocks on the beach and see the great view.

A beautiful little community along the beach in Costa Rica, Santa Theresa offers Eco-tourism, surfing, yoga, and relaxation. Don't rent a car as the roads are treacherous, rent an ATv instead or walk everywhere. Beaches are amazing, Sandy and long. Waves are strong so be careful with children. Enjoy fresh, homemade food at local restaurants and get to know the... More

Very consistent breaks, nothing too huge, but lots of action and quite rideable for intermediate and even beginning surfers. A very long stretch of beach with differenbreaks pooping up at high and low tides. It canocassionally get a little choppy, but mostly it's consistently perfect. Playa Hermosa a good option as well at high tide

Even though Santa Teresa is a surfer's paradise, everyone can enjoy! The beaches were beautiful with turquoise water(at least the time I was there). Nice beach to also explore the rocks if one is a collector. One of the best beaches to watch the sunset.

Another beautiful beach in Costa Rice. This is filled with younger surfers rather than wildlife but a great spot to hang out in. Plenty of places to get surf lessons or just watch the surfers from the beach bars

I stayed in Santa Teresa for two weeks and will definetely visit it again. I loved the beaches, the vibe of the town, the places to go out for a coffee or a nice dinner and the wonderful people everywhere. I had my surf camp experience (with Believe) here and finally I learned to surf. I also took yoga lessons... More

Really nice place to relax, even if you are not a sufer, the place has its own magic and its really entertained to see others doing its thing on the waves, also enjoy magnificent sunsets everyday. Just have to take precautions with mosquitoes after the sunset.
