USA Today Votes Santa Teresa One of Costa Rica’s Top Ten Beaches
In a recent article published last month USA Today, Mark Rogers writes about the 10 best beaches in Costa Rica. Rogers goes over the pros of different beaches to give people a better idea of where they might like to go best. Not only did Playa Santa Teresa make the list, but it looks like it could be one of Rogers favorites, and there is doubt why.
Santa Tersa is where the jungle meets the surf, in a tranquil community with a calm spirit and world class waves. Rogers Point points out that,
Many travelers come to Costa Rica’s jungles and rainforests to glimpse brightly colored birds, in-your-face howler monkeys and slow as molasses sloths. But all of the country’s mountains, rivers and streams run down to the sea, where visitors will find a coastline with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Some of Costa Rica’s beaches hum with activity and watersports, while others are secluded strands perfect for unplugging. Costa Rica takes its natural treasure serious; the country has laws in place that declare 70 percent of the land must remain undeveloped. This means a selection of the country’s beaches (playas) are part of a national forest or nature reserve, making it possible to observe wild creatures only a shell’s throw away from the beach.
The article gives insight on different beaches that made the list ending on our hometown of Playa Santa Teresa.
Once a sleepy fishing village, Santa Teresa has grown into a town that welcomes tourists while still keeping things low key, and where the dreaded high-rise is kept at bay. Beach activities abound, with options for surfing, stand up paddleboarding, and snorkeling. Santa Teresa makes it easy to enjoy the beach, with plenty of nearby eateries, hotels, beach bars, shops and surf schools. Watching the sunset is a communal activity and a great time to mingle with the locals.
