Santa Teresa, Costa Rica is often called the country’s best surf destination thanks to its consistent waves forming on a point break. Surfers flock here year-round to hit the waves, and because of this, Santa Teresa boasts a laid-back, surfer town charm that appeals to visitors of all types and ages.
It’s the biggest town on the south tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, so you’ll find lots of cute cafes, surf shops, bikini shops and great restaurants to make your time in Santa Teresa perfect.
This is a great jumping off point if you want to learn to surf, and our organizers will be happy to set you up with surf lessons with a certified instructor for when you arrive. Or, try Stand Up Paddleboarding or let us help you sign up for yoga classes or yoga retreats near this idyllic little town. The tiny hippie village of Montezuma is close by and makes a great day trip from Santa Teresa, and we can arrange comfortable transportation for you and your family or friends.
