Santa Teresa in Costa Rica is a destination you won’t easily forget. You won’t find a relaxed vibe like this in many other places around the world. What makes Santa Teresa even more delightful are its beautiful hotels. Santa Teresa boasts a number of incredibly beautiful and unique hotels that make your time in this charming surf village by the Pacific Ocean even better. We’ve searched for the finest hotels and have compiled a list of four top choices for you. Each hotel in this list has its own special qualities.
Tip: We mention a ‘starting price’ because hotel prices greatly depend on when you book and the season you plan to stay in. As Santa Teresa is rapidly gaining popularity, the best and most enjoyable hostels and hotels get booked up quickly. That’s why we recommend booking your hostel or hotel as early as possible. We link to Booking.com because here you can often cancel for free up to a few days before your stay. This way, you have the flexibility to change your plans if needed while still having the assurance of a good hotel.

Canaima Chill House
Canaima Chill House is also a small paradise in Santa Teresa. This beautiful hotel is tucked away in the jungle, and when we were there, we saw a whole group of howler monkeys swinging through the trees! There’s a nice pool and even a jacuzzi. A major advantage is its central location to restaurants and the beach, yet it’s away from the busyness. Keep in mind that it’s on a hill, and you’ll need a 4×4 to reach the hotel. The final part of the road to the hotel is quite steep.
