When you’re in a lush slice of paradise like Santa Teresa, it can be tough to know which activity to do, or where to go first. That’s why we at Casa Teresa have come up with this cheat sheet to help you get the most out of your trip, however long you’re staying with us. 

1. Horseback Riding

2. Canopy Tours

Canopy tours allow you to observe the one-of-a-kind beauty of Costa Rica’s forests without endangering any of its gorgeous wildlife. You can experience the beauty of the area’s nature from the thrilling comfort of a sturdy zip line.

3. Playa Hermosa

Santa Teresa is known for its amazing surf spots, but not everyone who visits is ready to tackle some of the gnarlier waves the beach offers. Playa Hermosa is a beach with gentler surf that riders of all experience levels can enjoy.

The legendary Montezuma Waterfalls are just a short drive away from Santa Teresa. Relaxing in the pool at the bottom of the falls is a refreshing treat, and the more daring among you can even dive from the falls themselves!

7. Tortuga Island

Tortuga Island is a little nook off the coast of Santa Teresa, and it’s something of a local secret that the town residents take great pride in.

Las Caracolas serves exquisite, traditional Costa Rican food that consistently garners rave reviews from their guests, and their location along the side of a beautiful shoreline makes them one of the luxury travel experiences you absolutely shouldn’t miss out on.

9. Zwart Art Cafe

Zwart Art Cafe is a quirky little breakfast corner that serves a mix of American comfort food as well as classic Costa Rican dishes such as Gallo Pinto. This is a good choice for those wanting something close to home that still retains a strong tropical vibe.

10. The Sunsets

You’ll be kicking yourself for the rest of your trip if you end up missing out on one of Santa Teresa’s legendary sunsets! Almost any beach will make prime real estate for sunset viewing, but this is one of the most popular luxury travel experiences the villa has to offer, so be sure to get to the surf early before it crowds up.
