About Santa Teresa:
Located on the Nicoya Peninsula, Santa Theresa is a surfer’s and beach seeker’s paradise. Endless miles of coastline for walking and some world-class surfing to catch the waves. With the jungle bordering the beach, hiking is certainly an option for the more intrepid yogi. This place is a paradise located on an almost completely private beach.  Santa Teresa is a relaxed and quaint town. Safe, easy to get around and traveler friendly.

From San Jose, getting to Santa Teresa is simple: either take the local bus ($15 from San Carlo Bus station, leaving at 6am and 2pm daily) which includes a stunning ferry ride to the Nicoya Peninsula, or fly Natureair or Sansa Airlines to Tambor (30-minute flight $50-$150) and we’ll have a taxi waiting to transfer you to Pranamar.  Lauren will assist you to ensure that your journey to Pranamar is as easy as possible and hassle free. We can also help arrange your transportation from Liberia if necessary.
