5/5

Santa Teresa Surf Hostel, the biggest hostel on the main road, a 4-story playground that totally vibes with the town’s artistic environment and culture. With a bed and a room for all tastes the hostel has an electric social atmosphere and soon-to-be life long friends awaiting your arrival.

 

Santa Teresa is a remote beach town in Costa Rica that seems to have a little something more, a secret power if you like. Its an energy that can’t be explained but can definitely be felt by all. The long white sand beaches, the endless barrels, the music, the parties, the mind bending culinary experience and the beautiful people that walk the streets will bring you to Santa Teresa, but its that magnetising energy that makes you never want to leave.

 

Here you can paddleboard, snorkel, or check out some amazing marine fauna. Take an adventure on horseback or ATV and discover Montezuma’s waterfalls, or put on your boots and explore Cabo Blanco, the oldest nature reserve in Costa Rica. After the sun goes down, you can get down at the local dancehall, or stay up all night long dancing to the beats of international DJs.
