We really enjoyed our stay at Cuesta Arriba. We are in our mid-thirties and were happy the demographic was similar, quiet and respectful. It is in a great location and close to the surf. We were really happy to stay and would go back for sure!

The perfect place to stay while we spend 4 days surfing. Clean, comfortable, quiet, relaxing. It's a away from the busy part of Santa Teresa but still in great location for beach access, supermarket and local restaurants. Would highly recommend as a place to stay if your on a budget.

We stayed at Cuesta Arriba for three nights and it was perfect.
