What people are saying about Santa Teresa...

"Surf’s always up in the Costa Rican beach town of Santa Teresa. Bright sun and gleaming sands make the perfect backdrop to hang ten in the crystal-clear waters, and fishing, snorkeling and kite-surfing are popular among vacationers. Yoga and spa services are a must for the ultimate relaxation, and, at night, catch a glorious sunset on the same beach where earlier you caught a wave." ~ Trip Advisor

Santa Teresa is like nowhere you've ever been.

Santa Teresa is a remote, small beach town on the Pacific in Costa Rica. The community is comprised of locals, Ex-Pats and visitors from around the globe, all living the dream of the surf/yoga lifestyle.

Costa Rica is a known for Pura Vida -- pure life. What that feels like is an environment of simplicity, and a low-stress, laid-back, and gentle lifestyle. Whether-or-not your a surfer or a yogi, the relaxed mindset is contagious. Even the most anxious and excitable person feels at home in Santa Teresa; everyone is a local by day 4. To get around, you can walk, take a taxi, rent an ATV, or just stay-put beach-side. Once there, you may even find that you do different things than you had planned; and you'll probably be OK with that...

What is the last date to register?

  • DECEMBER 31, 2018, is the last day to register. 

Do I need to exchange money at the airport or in advance of the trip?

  • No. You can use USD but your change will come in the local currency, Colones (CRC). The exchange rate is 0.0018 USD for every 1 CRC, but there's a typical local conversion used of 540 CRC to 1 USD. Everyone there is great at figuring it out so you don't have to be. (Or install an app to do the math for you.)

Do the people we'll interact with speak English?

  • Nearly everyone speaks English -- and certainly everyone who you work with at the hotel and at attractions will -- and Ticos (Costa Ricans) even talk to you in English when you attempt Spanish... (Or maybe that's just when we attempt Spanish.) There's a huge ex-pat population so it's super easy to communicate. We were delighted at how welcome everyone made us feel in past visits.
