Surfing in the Area

SANTA TERESA IS LOCATED BETWEEN THE CENTRAL PACIFIC AREA AND GUANACASTE.

IT MEANS THAT IT BENEFITS FROM BOTH THE BIG SOUTH SWELLS WICH HIT THE BEACHES SOUTH OF PUNTARENAS DURING THE WET SEASON AS WELL AS THE OFFSHORE "PAPAGAYO" WINDS WICH CREATE OPTIMUN CONDITIONS ON THE GUANACASTE COAST DURING THE DRY SEASON.

Playa Santa Teresa

 Turn right at the crossroads and continue 3 km. To "Bar la Lora Amarilla" and turn down to the beach. Santa Teresa tends to pick up more swell than El Carmen and holds shape better at low tide. Fast and barrels.

Playa Carmen

Continue straight on at the crossroads to the beach and you'll see the peak right in front of you. A long right wall and shorter section left break over a gradually sloping sand bottom. Funny the ShoreBreak with high tide. Easy wave for all level, good for practise and improve.

Playa Hermosa

next beach north from Santa Teresa, and even less crowded. Peaks all along the palm lined beach.
