Where to stay in Santa Teresa

About Santa Teresa

Santa Teresa is a quintessential Costa Rican beach town fringed by golden sand and swaying coconut palms. It's a mecca for sun-bronzed surfers, laid-back yogis and backpackers travelling the Latin American circuit. Bask on the beach by day and enjoy lively nightlife after sunset.

Things to do

Playa Santa Teresa boasts rolling waves and a challenging point break. Relax on the sand, rent a board or sign up for surf lessons with one of the friendly locals. Playa Hermosa is a favourite spot for surfers, while the sheltered coves at Playa El Carmen are great for swimming and sunbathing.

Stretch your body and rejuvenate your mind with yoga classes at local studios. Renting a stand-up paddleboard offers a full-body workout and fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean, while sunset horseback riding tours are a great way to enjoy Santa Teresa's beaches.

Adventure seekers can soar over the treetops on a canopy zip-line. Watch for toucans, sloths, howler monkeys and butterflies flitting in the tropical forest, then hike in the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve to experience the natural beauty of the Nicoya Peninsula.

Boasting jaw-dropping ocean views, Papaya Lounge is one of Santa Teresa's best places to wine and dine. It serves creative tapas inspired by local and seasonal ingredients, with coffee-braised beef and passionfruit-glazed seafood skewers on the menu. Koji restaurant boasts ocean-fresh sushi, while Zwart Café serves healthy breakfasts in a chic space filled with surf-inspired art.

Getting around
