Playa Santa Teresa has quickly become one of Costa Rica’s most prized spots. This white sand beachbreak is hollow and consistent, especially at lower tides. The beach has a variety of world-class breaks but one of the best shaped peaks is right out front of the sandy lane. Every day – all year round, you can watch waves peeling while having a breakfast. You can call it surf heaven with opportunities for all levels of surfing – with both lefts and rights in the area and some rocky reef points that can hold very big swells. The warm tropical water and the perfect beach breaks waves make it all easy, safe and fun for surfers of all ages.
If you want to venture yourself out in a 4×4 vehicle there is a great diversity of surf spots in that area. From reef breaks to different kind of beach breaks all in a short driving range. Or simple leave behind the 4×4 and jump onboard a boat to several right hander point breaks where you can surf by yourself perfect waves.
