Santa Teresa is a small picturesque town on Nicoya Peninsula, in Costa Rica, about 93 miles from San Jos. Once a remote fishing village, Santa Teresa grew into a popular tourist destination mostly due to its spectacular beaches. Playa Santa Teresa is a large, wide expanse of fine white sand open to Pacific Ocean and surrounded by verdant hills and lush tropical jungle.
While the beach is isolated and still fairly undeveloped, it has recently become more popular and it is no longer easy to spend the day enjoying the beach alone. Some of the main attractions are rocky tide pools and two excellent surf spots, La Lora and Suck Rock, known for consistent year-around waves. The waves are large, steep and hollow, and can be up to 20 feet high. The famous waves are the reason for Playa Santa Teresa's annual international surfers' competitions. If you are not into surfing, the beach is also great for swimming, hiking, snorkeling, sailing and is a great starting point for deep sea fishing.
