Beautiful, beautiful beach. Great sand, warm water, awesome waves! What more can you ask for!? Enjoy the sunset with a cold beer and an empanada and you wont be wanting to leave. If you really want to enjoy the beach, bring your hammock and string it up between the trees in the shade. pura vida

Santa Teresa was a wondeful place to walk the beach for miles, enjoy nature and not feel like you were surrounded by tourists, despite the fact that you are. Dirt roads and quads are the main way to get around, which definitely lends to the community "feel". It was built by surfers for surfers for a reason; the beach is... More

This beach was right outside our villa and we spent a lot of time here. We swam here, tanned here, did our work here, and enjoyed watching the sunset every night here. It's a clean beach with lovely water. Loved it!

Great for surfers! Beautiful beach with lots to see. Not great for swimming but great for watching surfers and sunsets. 100's of hermit crabs come out at night :)

This Is one of our favorite beaches we have visited. Despite the rising popularity of santa Teresa, the restaurants and hotels are all built slightly off the beach so you can actually go to the beach and enjoy the natural beauty.

If you like walking along a sandy beach for miles, this is a beautiful place to visit. Just be careful with the heat.

a little too crowded with lots of surfers and places that cater to a mid 20 beach bum lifestyle. Plenty of places to eat and stay. Not a ton of smiles here.

Many beach breaks perfect for surfing lessons. There are plenty of shops and restaurants in and around the area. What i like about the place is that it neither too crowded nor too isolated. This place is also perfect for birdwatching as there are lots of them especially in the afternoon catching fish in the surf.
