Once a little fishing village, is now called one of the most charming beachfront destinations in the world by Forbes Magazine.

Located at the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, Santa Teresa has a sophisticated and trendy international flavour.

Santa Teresa became a popular surf destination for good reasons: this charming little surf village known for its incredible beauty with white sand beaches, steep jungle-covered hills and forests teeming with monkeys and exotic birds and fruits.

We love it for the year-round excellent surf, many food options and there’s relaxed vibe and unbeatable atmosphere which you have to experience in order to understand it.

After hosting guests in town for more than 4 years we know this place like a local and are still in love with it like the first time we came. Here is one if the reason why it is one of Mahalo Surf Experiences favourite places in the world.

From world-class breaks to beginner-friendly bumps and everything in-between, Costa Rica offers a whole lot of waves for all levels of surfers.

When you arrive in Santa Teresa, the wonderful beaches will amaze you, most of them are still virgin and as natural as earthly possible, as well as the heart-stopping sunsets every evening.

Whether you’re looking for a family holiday or simply score some waves solo this is the place!

We can customise the perfect surf trip for those who are looking to connect with nature and themselves or simply rest in a luxury hideaway. You will realise that Costa Rica has a plethora of options to suit all types of travellers.
