There are plenty of Vegan restaurants and options in the town square and along the short road towards Santa Teresa. I would stick to an excursion company that offers surfing. Del Soul, Pura Vida Surfers and Believe Surf and Yoga are all highly rated. The rip tides in Santa Teresa and along that part of the coast are not for beginners which is why I would stick to an excursion company for your first time in that area.

Nothing around Playa Grande food wise like you want. It's at least 30 mins away by car to get Western food in Tamarindo. I'd stay there for beginner level aces. Or get a 4 wheel drive and head straight down to Santa Teresa and call Ricardo. +506 8842-3046. The best surf guide ever. Trust me.

I would suggest playa Hermosa. it's just north of Santa Teresa. the beaches right at Santa Teresa break right on the beach and to catch the waves you have to go out quite a ways which can be intimidating for beginners. playa Hermosa has a flat. each so the waves end in a mellow fashion. what you want to do is have fun.

As beginning surfers you can find a good break anywhere on the Pacific coast line. But if you want lots of choices of food I would suggest Tamarindo. It is the busiest beginner surf beach in the area but a great place to learn. And you can go across the river(20 minute drive)to Playa Grande which is excellent breaks for beginner and intermediate. Then when you get confident go 20 minutes south for more challenging waves to playa Avenallas.

I’d suggest Hermosa beach for surfing and Santa Teresa for vegan options.

Hiya. You better head down to Playa Hermosa or Playa del Carmen. The waves are a lot calmer and there aren't many rocks in the water. There are also some supermarkets and cafes right down the road from Playa Carmen.

Santa Theresa would be perfect for you. Lots of surfing. I'm not too sure about vegan but there was plenty of different places to eat there.
