Santa Teresa Surfing

Surfing Santa Teresa, Costa Rica

Santa Teresa is a long white sand beach, rated one of the most beautiful in the world by Forbes magazine.

It has a series of great breaks, with the most well-known at La Lora Amarillo. “La Lora” is right next to the epic point break “Suck Rock” and this is a very popular, and consistent spot, about the same quality as Playa Carmen. North of Santa Teresa are a lot of rocky beaches, with a hidden surf spot or two known only to locals. After a couple of miles is Playa Hermosa, which has several surf camps, a point break, but is still never crowded because it’s fairly remote compared to Teresa and Carmen.

From Montezuma, it’s a half-hour drive across the peninsula to Santa Teresa. Surfers staying in Montezuma will head over to the pacific side of the peninsula when the waves are too small in Montezuma, since St Teresa faces out to the pacific and thus catches more, and bigger swells.
