  Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica

Sitting on the western edge of the Nicoya Peninsula, Santa Teresa is a tiny beach village that draws in a lot of surfers and beach bodies. In the last several years, this laid-back town has blossomed into a booming travel destination. Despite its size, Santa Teresa has been hailed as world-class surfing spot in Costa Rica - with gorgeous white sandy beaches and swells that put a smile on surfers' faces year-round.

With consistent off-shore winds, Santa Teresa boasts swells that have been known to attract surfers from all over the globe. Even with its amazing surf the waters here are not localized, welcoming surfers of any level. Bringing in the Pacific waters, waves range from moderate to strong. Although surfing conditions are top-notch through the year, the best time to visit Santa Teresa beach is from May to December, which is the tropical rainy season called the "green season." During this time, the waves are at their peak and there are many barrels to be ridden. Bright sun and gleaming sands make the perfect backdrop to hang ten in the crystal-clear waters, and fishing, snorkeling and kite-surfing are popular among holiday-makers. Yoga and spa services are a must for the ultimate relaxation, and, at night, catch a glorious sunset on the same beach where earlier you caught a wave.

The fastest way to arrive in Santa Teresa is by catching a ferry from Paquera. The boat ride lasts about 65 minutes, curving around the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. Another option is taking a domestic flight from the Juan Santa Maria International Airport near San Jose to the Tambor Domestic Airport, which is a 25-minute flight. From here, you can find a bus or taxi that will head southwest approximately 35 kilometers.
