Summary

Santa Teresa is a remote beach town in Costa Rica that seems to have a little something more, a secret power if you like. Its an energy that can’t be explained but can definitely be felt by all. The long white sand beaches, the endless barrels, the music, the parties, the mind bending culinary experience and the beautiful people that walk the streets will bring you to Santa Teresa, but its that magnetising energy that makes you never want to leave. The beaches of Santa Teresa host some of the best surf spots in Costa Rica. There are a variety of world-class breaks with ideal surf conditions throughout the year.

Selina Santa Teresa, the biggest hostel on the main road, a 4-story playground that totally vibes with the town’s artistic environment and culture. With a bed and a room for all tastes this Selina has an electric social atmosphere and soon-to- be life long friends awaiting your arrival.

MORE INFO, HOW TO GET THERE & FAQ


SURF CONDITIONS

Costa Rica is known for its miles of white sandy beaches, monkeys swinging in the trees that line the sand and endless waves that begged to be ridden. With the name Costa Rica meaning the “rich coast”, it certainly lives up to its name by having some of the best surfing destinations in the world. From beginner to advanced, there is a wave for everyone along one of Costa Rica’s hundreds of beaches.  Unpaved roads and hidden paradises have kept these magnificent beaches from becoming overcrowded and will have you feeling as though you are entering a secret paradise.

Santa Teresa has become one of the top destination surf spots for surfers in search of the best waves in Costa Rica. Because of its rolling coastline, white sand beaches and notoriously ‘hollow’ low tide waves, Santa Teresa attracts surfers of different levels of expertise. Beginners, intermediates and advance surfers alike can find a perfect breaking wave that caters to their level of experience.

Selina Surf Club is located in Santa Teresa spot. Playa Santa Teresa presents a variety of beach breaks, point breaks and high swells for the more experienced surfers, and Playa Hermosa is a long sandy beach with easy going beach breaks, both lefts and rights, well suited for surf beginners.  The surf is better at low tide when waves tend to be faster. Santa Teresa is also a popular yoga destination.

Just 10- 15 minutes of rest of the most importants spots in the area.

SURROUNDINGS / REGION

Demarcated by Nicaragua in the North and Panama in the South, Costa Rica hugs the Caribbean Sea in the East and the Pacific Ocean in the West. A high plateau divides the American cordilleras in the centre, bordered with low coastal lands in the East and in the West. More of half of the population live in this plain, with a volcanic fertile soil. Mangroves, marshlands and sandy beaches characterize the Caribbean coast, 212 long. More cut and rocky, the Pacific coast spreads out 1 016 km, dotted by gulfs and peninsulas.

Costa Rica is home to a rich variety of plants and animals. Over 840 species of birds have been identified in Costa Rica. As is the case in much of Central America, the avian species in Costa Rica are a mix of North and South American species. The country's abundant fruit trees, many of which bear fruit year round, are hugely important to the birds, some of whom survive on diets that consist only of one or two types of fruit.

"Pura Vida" is the most recognizable phrase attached to Costa Ricans, and it reflects the inhabitant's positive view of life. Literally translated, the expression means: “pure life” and denotes a simple life, free of stress, a positive, relaxed feeling.

Formalities: For French nationals, a passport valid 6 months after your return home is compulsory, a return plane ticket as well. No visa for stays of less than a month.

The capital is San Jose.

Language: the official language is Spanish. Second lenguage: English.

Health: No vaccine is required to enter Costa Rica. Nevertheless, think about taking a treatment against malaria if you wish to hazard in the jungle.

Time differences: -7 hours in winter, -8 hours in summer.

Weather: Costa Rica is a tropical country and only has two seasons: humid and dry.
The dry season usually lasts from the end of December to mid-April.
The wet season lasts the rest of the year. The Caribbean coast remains humid all year long. Temperatures not change too much.

Nearby airports to Santa Teresa: San José  (5,15hrs) and Liberia (4,15hrs). Book your Selina Surf club airport transfer.

Environment: Here, there are no hollow promises but a true political will and a life reference. Everything has been settled for more than 15 years now, for a harmonious and lasting development. Ecology in Costa Rica is a position for the whole nation.

Water/Electricity: Do not drink the tap water and bring along medicine for intestinal problems.Use an American outlet with flat connections because the electric current is 110 V.

Surfing:

He vuelto de mis vacaciones por este maravilloso país, Costa Rica, el broche de oro ha sido la última semana en Santa Teresa con el objetivo de perfeccionar mi nivel básico de surf y ha sido todo un descubrimiento toparme con Manu y Tavo, coach y manager de las clases de surf en Selina respectivamente. Los grupos reducidos de 4 personas con un nivel similar que por momentos se hace individual para conseguir ese perfeccionamiento que es imposible con las clases habituales en grupos de hasta 10 personas. Gran sentido de la responsabilidad y seguridad respecto a las condiciones climáticas, y buscando siempre las mejores olas para que lo que uno paga, lo valga. Al terminar las 2 horas que se hacen taaan cortas (porque está claro que lo bueno dura poco) para reponer energía te bebes una deliciosa y fresca agua de coco (del coco partido en ese momento y uno para cada uno!)y trozos de piña para morirse. Ahhh y otra ventaja sobre cualquier otro sitio para tomar clases es que aceptan tarjeta de crédito! Algo casi imposible en prácticamente todo Santa Teresa que solo vale el only cash Manu y Tavo gracias por mejorar mi surf estoy tan encantada que ya estoy mirando vuelos para volver sólo para pillar olas all day long
