Playa Santa Teresa is the best beach town in Costa Rica for independent travelers that want to get away from it all, still have a lot of fun activities to do, opportunities to socialize & party a little, and plenty of comforts of home too. Santa Teresa, Costa Rica at the southwestern corner of the Nicoya Peninsula is one of Costa Rica’s remaining off-the-beaten path cool spots. The Lonely Planet says “it has become one of Costa Rica’s most life affirming destinations. Here, the sea is alive with wildlife and is almost perfect when it comes to shape, color and temperature.” A funky, laid-back surfer town, full of expats from the U.S., Canada, Israel, Argentina, and across Europe; it was just a sleepy fishing village with 30 families as far back as 1985. People from around the world have seen its beauty and potential, and relocated here to start businesses & families, and create a unique community. You’ll find lots of great restaurants blending the freshest local ingredients & cuisine with European and international gastronomic tendencies. There are fun beach bars and great restaurants, some will even let you bring your own beer and wine. There are many interesting places to discover, and new things to try. Most people come here for surfing. Santa Teresa, Costa Rica boasts some of the world’s most consistent waves, and it doesn’t get too crowded out on the water either. Experts have several great surf spots around Santa Teresa to choose from and beginners can count on various surf schools with excellent, patient instructors to get them up and having fun before their Costa Rica surf vacation is over. Surfing is not the only activity in the Santa Teresa/Mal País area. The fishing is outstanding! The fisherman can also take you snorkeling. The exciting canopy tour along ziplines at the edge of Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve gives you a beautiful bird’s eye view of the area’s splendor. Yoga in Santa Teresa is a popular activity, and there are many excellent teachers and various classes to try out. Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is a booming water sport that you can learn in Santa Teresa as well. Kayak fishing in Mal País harbor or cruising up the Río Bongo to see all kinds of wildlife is one of the funnest things you can do around Santa Teresa. Ask the manager to set up any of these activities for you. ATVs are the primary means of transportation for most residents, and rentals and extreme tours are readily available.

Casa de la selva: el mejor lugar para pasar las vacaciones

Estuve en Jungle House durante una semana entera junto con 8 personas más y la pasamos espectacular. El lugar es precioso y la pasamos muy comodamente en la casa que es bastante grande y hermosa, donde la pasamos de maravilla. La casa se encuentra rodeada de árboles que lo hacen a uno sentir como en la selva y se encuentra solamente a 5 minutos de la playa Santa Teresa, en donde es perfecto para surfear, se observan atardeceres hermosísimos y la arena es muy blanca, por lo que es muy lindo lugar para estar. Fue el mejor lugar que pudimos elegir para pasar nuestras vacaciones.
