Santa Teresa Beach

Location – Santa Teresa Beach, Nicoya Peninsula

Santa Teresa Beach is located on the southwestern tip of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, just next to the Cabo Blanco Natural Reserve and only 45 minutes from the beach town of Mal Pais. Getting to Hotel Tropico Latino, on Santa Teresa Beach, is possible in many ways:

Getting to Santa Teresa Beach by Air:

Both SANSA and NATURE AIR offer several flights daily from San Jose to Tambor, the closest airport to Santa Teresa. From Tambor, the hotel can arrange taxi transport for you. Please contact the hotel prior to your flight to arrange this service. Flight time is approximately 20 minutes from the San Jose area to Tambor, plus 40 minutes by taxi to the hotel. Fly by Sansa, check for flights here, at left bar.

Getting to Santa Teresa Beach by Car:

From San Jose, drive west to the Pacific Coast port town of Puntarenas and take the car ferry to Paquera. Be sure not to take the ferry to Playa Naranjo. Once off the ferry in Paquera, follow the signs for Cobano and Mal Pais, passing through the town of Tambor; watch for road signs as the route is clearly marked. Once in Cobano, drive straight through town and turn left after 1 kilometer, proceeding toward Mal Pais. You will now be driving on a dirt road. After 8 km (30 min), you will arrive at Mal Pais crossroads; turn right and Hotel Tropico Latino is 800 yards on your left, just after a tiny bridge. Total driving time is approximately 3 hours, plus 1 hour on the ferry.

Getting to Santa Teresa Beach by Boat:

There is a new alternative for those wanting to travel from San Jose, Alajuela, Jaco or Manuel Antonio to Santa Teresa Beach, and vice versa, without having to drive or take a ferry or plane.

It’s a Taxi Boat run by Zuma Tours that leaves from Herradura Beach (next to Jaco) every day at 10:45 AM and arrives in one hour to Montezuma. From there, a transfer will take you straight to Hotel Tropico Latino in Santa Teresa with a total travel time of 2 hours; average cost is $55 per person.

The boats range in size between 26 and 30 feet long and have a capacity of 12 to 30 passengers, with luggage. Boats have 2 motors of 175 HP each, ensuring a fast and safe trip across the Gulf of Nicoya, not to mention giving you beautiful sights along the way!
