We stayed very close to one of the entrances to the beach. Santa Teresa itself doesn't have a real "town centre" but rather a long strip of road with various places to stay and dine. The beach is incredible. One of the nicest in Costa Rica with amazing surf. You can walk for miles along the beach and get such... More

Santa Teres is a comunity with endless sandy beaches, rocky pinnacle everyonce in a while, lots of tropical vegetation and this beautiful blue Pacific Ocean. Great surfing too. Everybody surfs.

The surf out front of cuesto arriba* was really good. In February, the waves are great before 11am. Hot air during the dry season makes side/onshore winds in effect by 12pm usually. Mid to high is the best tide though it's flexible and can be weird. I recommend waking up at 5:30am and squeezing 2 sessions in before 11am, then... More

Artsy, diverse , surfer vibe , miles of gorgeous beach and waves. Definitely worth it , if you want to go off the beaten path .... Good place to relax and unwind... More

Beautiful landscape, trees, white sand, but not recommended for bathing, the combination of waves and rocks are dangerous. You can have a nice sunbath and chill-out enjoying the great landscape though.

what a great place to relax and recharge. all the restaurants were excellent, the people were very kind and willing to assist travellers. if you go an ATV is a must to get around, just be aware that it can be dusty during the dry season. The ocean and beach were perfect, constant sun and waves

I'm sorry to read the review by krsthom. We are a couple in our mid 40's and had an AMAZING time in Playa Santa Teresa! The beach is beautiful, the weather is amazing, and the people are friendly. It has an interesting international feel for such a small place. The road is a bit rough, and it was dusty ON... More
