Santa Teresa Costa Rica

< >

Santa Teresa Beach is custom-built for fun. You have the perfect combination of relaxing beaches, exciting jungle, tropical rainforest and luxurious accommodations within nature. White sand beaches, lush vegetation and spectacular sunsets set an amazing stage for your best holiday.

Pranamar Villas is a gorgeous, intimate boutique hotel right on the water with luxury two-story villas built around a free-form saltwater pool and tropical gardens, and elaborate beachfront villas. Picture Balinese architecture with bamboo, hardwoods, stone, water and plenty of windows and doors to let in fresh sea breezes.

Getting here is an adventure in itself! Best way to get here is by flight through our local domestic airline Sansa or by private charter. This is a short 25-minute scenic flight that will get you from Juan Santamaria Airport to Tambor. From Tambor, you can either have a car rental company meet you or we can help you arrange a transfer to pick you up for the 50-minute drive to Pranamar. You can also get here through land. Keep in mind that any of the driving options from San José or Juan Santamaria airport takes minimum 5 hours and involves a ferry crossing. For more information check our How to Get Here section under Location of this page.

Love, Grace and Gratitude at Christmastime

The specialness of the Christian and Jewish holiday season has manifested in me a sense of love, grace and gratitude.
