The first night I arrived at FlorBlanca there was no one to check me in...except the sleepy security guard. That very first night someone broke into my villa at 5am and stole my surf board, while I was sleeping in the bedroom. They did gave me a night free, but only after I complained rather harshly. At $450 a night, that IS NOT SUPPOSED to happen. They never got back to me the whole 8 days about the break in. Crime has spun completely out of control in Santa Teresa. Also, the Dengue fever epidemic from mosquitos has become a nightmare. Its turned into a ghetto where criminals prey on tourists. The drought has caused a dust bowl on the town road which is giving local children asthma. The last morning a cat jumped on our breakfast table and ate my breakfast - and no one did a thing. No wonder why they are empty. The management doesn't care, they are just there for the surf. Don't go. Hawaii or Mexico is much safer and enjoyable.
