“Beautiful Sunsets”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

The beach is fantastic. Beautiful rock formations, excellent surf, clean and well kept by residents - there is much to explore here. Take a nice long walk and soak it all in.

“Dust Bowl”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

We visited Playa Santa Teresamfor 5 days this winter. I must say we were very disappointed in the state of the main road running through town. You could not walk down the street without a scarf wrapped around your mouth. The dust from ATV, motorcycles, cars and trucks is overwhelming. The government seriously needs to invest in paving the roads in towns like Santa Teresa and Mal Pais is they want the tourists to come back. It also cannot be good for the citizens of this area.

“Killer sunsets & surf!”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

There's nothing negative to say about the beach at Santa Teresa. There's plenty of space for everyone (never overcrowded). In fact, if you walk far enough, you can find your own private beach areas. Surf is nearly always good. Sunsets are the best I've seen anywhere! Water is clean, beach is clean, people are friendly. Cool, shaded jungle paths to the beach. Best part is no hotels/resorts stacked up like on American beaches!
