The absolutely perfect place to stay to surf, yoga, and enjoy all that Santa Teresa has to offer. Located just a few minutes walk from the beach - you have access to all the best of Santa Teresa...in a chill setting with a beautiful property and caring staff. Believe gives you the opportunity to do as much or as little as you want (super easy to join their excellent surf lessons, which I highly recommend). You're close to many amazing restaurants (and the supermarket, which is a huge plus for picking up random items / exchanging $$).

The vibe is friendly with really interesting people from all over the world (not a young hostel party vibe, but social) - I'm not the type to travel to meet new people, but you just feel perfectly welcome and relaxed at Believe - I can't truly explain it, but makes it feel like a second home.

I've been twice and plan to return - can't recommend it enough!

I just got back from a week at Believe and the place is simply fantastic! Great staff and visitors (from families to solo travelers) from all over, yummy breakfast, beautiful place and a good location (nice cafés and restaurants within walking distance). The surf instructors they work with are clearly the best I've come across so far! I also enjoyed the yoga classes. Would definitely go back again!

This place is paradise! I’m a 21yo woman and this was my first solo trip. I was a bit hesitant going into the experience but quickly realized how lovely the people in Costa Rica are, and most importantly, that Believe really makes sure you’re taken care of. They schedule daily activities and the environment is great for solo travelers or fun couples who are ready to meet people. I met some great friends on this trip and am already planning to go back in March! If I could move to Believe, I would :) the only downside (a very, very minimal one) is that I’ll have to pack my own blow dryer when I return because they don’t have them—I assumed they would and my hair goes crazy without one, so we’ll see if I manage to pack that in my carry-on the second time around lol! Just an FYI for any of you who might be as reliant on blow dryers as I am.

This review is long overdue. I spent 10 days at believe in October and had a great time there. Everything is well organized and I felt welcome even before I got there. Our surf instructor Gustavo was very patient and knowledgeable. I already miss it there and can’t wait to come back!
