To start with, it’s an adventure getting there! Santa Teresa is on the outer edge on the Pacific just above the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. The roads are not paved here, and you must either come by way of small plane or ferry and then by 4-wheel-drive vehicle.

The beach itself is awash with possibilities – from first-class surfing to stand-up paddle boarding, in-shore and off-shore fishing, snorkeling, tide pool exploring, horseback riding on the sand, long walks and splendid sunsets.

There is the jungle – vibrantly green, splashed with color, buzzing with life. It pours down from the mountains along the coast, hugging the shoreline of white sand beaches and clear aquamarine sea. Hike its trails and you are in the heart of nature; fly through the treetops on a canopy zip line and you know what it is like to be a tropical bird. Two major landmarks are close by to visit – the famed Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve and the unforgettable Montezuma Waterfalls.
