If you are looking for a romantic and quit place to stay that is just 25 meters from the beach go to Pacifica. You won't regret it. The place has a pool and the studios are equipped with hammocks, king size beds, a safe, airconditioning, van and have a big closet. It is very nicely decorated. You can also rent... More

this trip was great, could not have had more helpful host, in every aspect. This place is good for everyone family and friends. Right on the beach path, not even a minute walk to check the surf. By far the best part of C.R. that i have been to, this place is special and should be kept this way.

I spent 10 days in Santa Theresa with my brother and had the chance to stay at Pacifica Surf Studios for a few nights, it was literally the best spot during the whole trip but was also the most wanted :) I would have stayed more if we had made reservations prior. So make sure you call them up and... More

If you are going to Santa Teresa to surf and looking for a comfortable, affordable, close to spots location to stay, that's it! The closest place to the ocean, really it will take just a 30 seconds from your bad to the wave! Rooms have a huge balcony with hammocks and great view. You can even sleep on the balcony... More

My husband and I have a 2 year old son and a 5 year old daughter. We arrived in Santa Teresa on August 19th, for a 6 week stay without reservations. We started out our trip at Pacifica Surf Studios, unsure if we would stay here the entire trip. After exploring the area, we did not find any other place... More

Great location, steps to the beach, nice rooms, very clean, affordable. Having been to Santa Teresa many times and stayed in a few different places, you'll not find a better fit than PSS if you want nice accomodations in a great spot. Simone the owner is great too. You really can't do much better if you are going to ST.
