Playa Santa Teresa is one of the loveliest and most beautiful places in the Nicoya Peninsula. This little but sublime beach holds a perfect area to surf because the warmth of the currents that bathe its shores are perfect for its practice. Nowadays, Santa Teresa Beach has become a landmark for the most experienced surfers. And, apart from surfing, there are many other activities to practice in this beach, such as pilates and yoga, amongst many more.
