The moment that we arrived at Casa Zen, we felt our worries just fade away. The environment of the hostel was so peaceful and at ease; I loved it. The decor of the hostel was absolutely beautiful, rooms were very spacious, clean rooms, bathrooms were a little dirty but it wasn't too bad, two kitchens, wonderful staff, and SUPER close to the beach. Santa Teresa definitely has some beautifully hidden beaches that are well worth checking out. The breakfast provided was a nice start to the day and the daily yoga classes offered daily were incredible. Definitely a nice place to get recharged half way through a long backpacking trip like we were doing. Wonderful place to stay in Santa Teresa!!
