About Santa Teresa

Laying on the southern tip of the Peninsula Nicoya, Santa Teresa is a unique beach town that seems to have a little something more, a secret power if you like. It's an energy that can't be explained but can definitely be felt by all. Long white sand beaches, world class surf spots, tropical jungle, amazing sunsets, more than 80 international restaurants, top-notch spa and the beautiful people that walk the streets will bring you to Santa Teresa, but its that magnetizing energy that makes you never want to leave.

A broad strip of forest frames the beaches and an absence of high-rise buildings maintains the pristine image of the coastline with its long sweep of white sand beach washed by the pacific surf and backed by jungle covered hills.

Trip Advisor calls it one of the top 10 destinations in Central and South America and more than a few celebrities have chosen to make Santa Teresa, Costa Rica their home away from home.

Santa Teresa has the distinct flavor of an ultra hip, cosmopolitan destination, yet paradoxically boasts untouched nature, while the dirt road that runs through the area leaves no doubt that travelers are indeed in the wild un-tamed west.

To Visit

Santa Teresa beach

Surf's always up in the Costa Rican beach town of Santa Teresa. Bright sun and gleaming sands make the perfect backdrop to hang ten in the crystal-clear waters, and fishing, snorkeling and kite-surfing are popular among vacationers. Yoga and spa services are a must for the ultimate relaxation, and, at night, catch a glorious sunset on the same beach where earlier you caught a wave.

Montezuma Waterfalls

Waterfalls are common in this part of Costa Rica, on the Montezuma side of the peninsula. Because of the natural geography, most of the rainwater that falls on the Nicoya peninsula flows towards the Montezuma side, so there are many falls with water in them year-round. Many have swimming holes, two have rope-swings, and one is ideal for cliff-diving (Montezuma Falls.)
