Just returned from spending the holidays at El Rey Patricio in Santa Teresa Costa Rica. I travel quite alot & cant remember a holiday I enjoyed more in long time. El Rey Patricio is right up the road from the town center, across from the beach, quiet, clean & comfortable with gorgeous views of the sea & the most amazing sunset! 2 great guys from Argentina Javier & Gustavo make you feel at home in their awesome piece of paradise. Gustavo is a great surf instructor & spanish teacher. He did an amazing job helping us catch waves & we cant wait to return for more, thanks again Gustavo! Enjoy the morning coffee (im a coffee snob so i dont say that lightly)& breakfast before surfing or exploring & then return for lunch or dinner. I recommend the pizza with carmelized onions DELISH! Tons of fun to be had in Santa Teresa town as well, great food, bars, beaches, cant wait to go back especially with snow in NYC!!! Highly recommend El Rey! ENJOY!
