Great place to watch surfers and sunsets. Not so great for swimming. Waves break right on shore and come in quick succession. Undertow prevalent.

Santa Teresa is one of the most beautiful beach here in Costa Rica. It‘s full of trees and palms and it isn‘t too crowded. Will definitely come back..

A great beach with great views. Although I wouldn't suggest it for swimming nor for beginner surfing.

I've tried to keep this a secret for many years but the cat is obviously out of the bag. Thankfully, the beach is still the most beautiful, long, white sand beach ever. Great waves. Beautiful vibe.

October is really not the best time to go. Yes a lot of rain, and sometimes the roads are washed out from the heavy rain. The business are not all open since it is low season.
