Santa Teresa Beach Costa Rica
Santa Teresa Beach is known for its epic surf breaks, romantic tropical landscapes and spectacular sunsets. On the southwestern tip of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, along the rugged Pacific Coast, lies the quiet little fishing village quickly being recognized as a “hidden” tourism gem. Playa Santa Teresa was named the #1 beach in Central America in Trip Advisor’s 2012 Traveler’s Choice awards, making it the second year in a row the area has been in the top 10.
Santa Teresa’s shores and surrounding jungle are filled with adventures for everyone. From world-class surfing, snorkeling and thrilling zip-line canopy tours to waterfalls, beach horseback riding, international yoga classes and retreats, and hiking in Cabo Blanco Absolute Natural Reserve, the Santa Teresa region brims with possibilities in the heart of nature’s playground.
Picture it … soft, cushy white sand, rhythmic deep blue waves rolling onto shore, soft breezes wafting playfully over you as you lounge in the shade of palm trees sipping cold coconut juice and snacking on chilled, juicy, sweet pineapple. Surfers bounce, flip and skim through the cobalt water and white froth. The warm yellow sun throws a zillion sparkles across the water. There is nothing to do, and nowhere to go. Just be.
Your Santa Teresa beachfront oasis, Hotel Tropico Latino, sits right on this tropical beach paradise in a wide, peaceful garden with a large beach-side pool and jacuzzi.
