A note on the area's ACTIVITIES & ATTRACTIONS

SURFING

Santa Teresa and Mal Pais host some of the best and least crowded surfing in Costa Rica. The area offers many different breaks to serve the skill levels of all surfers. The experienced surfer will be stoked to find themselves in one of the most renown surf locations in the world yet many surf breaks here are long even beach breaks with sandy bottoms making our beaches a great and safe place to learn to surf.

ATVs / Quad Bikes

Quads are for sure the funnest mode of transportation to explore the back roads and to find the gorgeous beaches and great tucked away restaurants in Santa Teresa/Mal País.

Massage & Spa Services

We are happy to arrange a wide variety of spa services in the privacy of your bungalow.

SNORKELING and SCUBA DIVING

Grab a snorkel and explore the deep tide pools in Mal Pais or use pacific divers-costarica to experience our beautiful waters.

Horse Tour

A wonderful way to take in this wonderful countryside is on horseback. The tour is probably the most natural way to experience the jungle and beaches of Santa Teresa/Mal País.

FISHING

Local guides will take you to some of the best fishing spots the area has to offer.

CANOPY TOUR

The local zip line operator is Canopy Del Pacifico. They will pick you up from the hotel and bring you into the heart of Cabo Blanco National Park. You will then experience zip-lining through and above thick rainforest on lines extending as long as 500m. You will delight in the views of the Pacific Ocean as you shoot across 9 platforms.

BIRD WATCHING

There are over 894 species including 19 globally threatened species in Costa Rica.

Hola~ I am a Nurse Practitioner (by profession) and avid traveler (by choice). We fell in love with Costa Rica when we visited and felt drawn to the area of Santa Teresa. The area is very laid back, as if you are taken back in time, and has a magical vibe you can only experience first hand. I have 2 grown children, 3 step daughters and 3 step-grand daughters. We hope when they are old enough we can bring them down for summers and when they go back to school they can brag to all their friends about seeing monkeys, iguanas and tropical birds. I love 'meeting' all our guests and helping coordinate their travel and excursions. Please don't hesitate to contact me regarding our little slice of paradise and I hope to 'meet' you soon! Pura Vida!

Kelly purchased this bungalow in 2011

Santa Teresa is one of the most amazing locations I have ever traveled to and I fell in love with the area and the people. The area takes you back in time, letting you live a 'simpler life'. People are genuinely friendly and helpful. The natural, untouched beauty of the area is like nothing else you will ever see.

Lovely and Unforgettable

  • Submitted: Jun 21, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
I recently stayed at Blue Surf with 2 of my girlfriends. We were there to learn how to surf, and liked the idea that it was a Billabong sponsored surf camp. We arrived late at night, but the security guard was there to greet us and instantly made us feel comfortable and safe. The room we were staying in ( Sereno) was beautifully decorated with a balcony over looking the pool amidst lots of trees, wild plants and exotic flowers. The whole space they've created at BSS is very airy and open.....and VERY clean! My favourite spot to relax and unwind was in the hammock near the pool, or in the dining room, where we shared a few potluck style meals and a bottle of wine or.... two.Also, BSS is located near many wonderful restaurants and grocery stores, all within 5 to 20 min walking distance on the main road.
Our first surf lesson was amazing! Our surf instructors ( Chito and John O) were really patient and encouraging. Which is what you're looking for as a first time surfer. They also explained safety and surf etiquette thoroughly before we went out....which made me feel like i was in good hands. The beach in front of BSS is ideal for beginners as well as experienced surfers, which is cool, cause you get to watch them and get a better understanding of the ocean and how to catch the waves.
Last but not least, the BSS staff! They were all so special and extremely accomodating. Always there to answer your questions, help with reservations, book a massage (which was btw...the best massage i've gotten in a long time, i truly recommend getting a massage with Daiana) and all that done with a smile! Thanks again to all of you who made my trip so memorable ( Sofi, Toro, Amelia and Juan...just to name a few )
I really feel like i discovered a little piece of paradise in Santa theresa.... where sipping on a coconut by the beach at sunset and doing nothing was better.... than i had ever imagined!

Don't Stay Anywhere Else

Don't Stay Anywhere Else
  • Submitted: Jun 21, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
I travelled by myself to Costa Rica for a much needed break from my corporate life. Many people I met were surprised that a woman would travel solo but this was, hands down, the best vacation I have ever been on (and I've been all over the world). Much of this was due to the amazing staff at Blue Surf. I'll admit I was a little nervous conducting all the business via e-mail and sending my money off into cyber-oblivion via PayPal - but everything went perfectly. The staff arranged for a pick-up at Tambor (even though my flight was nearly 45 minutes late, the car was still there to get me). **Piece of advice - don't fly Nature Air. I made the mistake of thinking I could save a few dollars by using this airline on the way into Tambor. It actually ended up costing me more because you have to get a cab from San Jose to Pavas Airport, which is about 30 minutes away or $30. They then charged me extra because my bag was over a certain weight. Totally not worth the headache. Fly Sansa both ways - the plane is bigger and feels safer.**
I was warmly greeted by the staff at Blue Surf. The property consists of 4 bungalows and I believe each one sleeps 2-3 people. There's a safe to keep your valuables and I particularly loved the huge, tiled shower complete with a clothesline to hang your suit apres surf. There's an outdoor (covered) kitchen that guests are free to use to make meals as well as a small pool. The place is wonderfully decorated and kept immaculately clean (which is hard to do in Costa Rica). You're surrounded by amazing wildlife - iguanas (don't worry, they're very shy), frogs, hummingbirds, squirrels and (if you're lucky to spot one), Howler monkeys.
I paid for a package deal which included 10 surf lessons, 2 yoga lessons, fruit/coffee before the surf lessons, and a full breakfast at the hotel down the street. My surf instructor, Chito, was amazing. I seriously thought I'd spend the majority of my time getting tossed off the board - but, by the second or third day, I was riding the waves. I was lucky enough to go at the start of the low season (early May) so all of my lessons were one-on-one. Honestly, if you can plan it, go during this time. All of the tourists had left and we often had the beach to ourselves. The restaurants were also super quiet and I spent much of my time chatting with bar/restaurant owners and finding out the secret to saying "f*** it" to the daily grind of corporate America.

Such a special place!

  • Submitted: May 7, 2012

I spent a few nights at the Blue Surf Sanctuary and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The owners and staff were friendly, and it felt like they doted on all of the guests without being suffocating. The location was perfect- close enough to town that you could walk there for a meal or drink and be part of the community, but far enough to have a little privacy.

Driving in Costa Rica can be a bit of a nightmare, and their staff (Toro) gave us very specific and accurate directions, which we very much appreciated. They offered their phone number for help and support throughout our trip, and made a few reservations for us as well. Overall, service was top notch. They even spent time giving me surf pointers after I declined an official lesson.

In terms of location and ammenities offered- the beach is close, the rooms are immaculate and well thought-out, and the AC was a complete luxury. Can't say enough, looking forward to my next stay.

BEST VACATION EVER!!!

  • Submitted: May 7, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
No doubt about it. Great place to stay. Rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. Balcony provides perfect place to watch the birds, iguanas and resident squirrel. Great pool to float around in. Quiet and peaceful though the sound of the howler monkeys can be a bit unsettling the first night. Smiling faces everywhere. The staff at Blue Surf Sanctuary adopt you the second you set foot on the property. Friendly, helpful, great food and adventure suggestions, perfect directions. Excellent English is spoken but they are more than willing to help with Spanish practice. Domingo, the night watchman, very pleasantly and patiently helped me out there. Kelly and Aaron were most helpful in all aspects of the trip. Answered all questions immediately and even helped me figure out flights and airports. Two minute walk to the most beautiful beach in Central America. The perfect beach bar and restaurant is a great place to sit and watch the sunset and sip a cocktail. Food is excellent as well. We rented an ATV for the week and that was a perfect way to see a lot of the surrounding area and venture out. It was dusty but well worth doing. The ride to Montezuma was quite entertaining with amazing views. The canopy tour at Montezuma makes a fun but exhausting day trip. This was a great place to stay. We will definitely be back as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone for the best vacation EVER!

We WILL be back!!

Thanks to Kelly and Aaron we were able to take a sort of last minute honeymoon! :) We spent 4 days at Blue Surf and it was absolutely wonderful! Learning to surf was so much fun, the instructors are very good! The entire staff makes you feel like you are at home. The bungalows are so peaceful and quaint and the property as a whole is so beautiful. After surfing you can enjoy a nice swim in the small pool that is on the grounds. The beach is only a minute away and the sunsets are like anything we have ever seen. The best part is you can sit at a beach bar and watch it! Food in the area is delicious! We didn't have near enough time to spend at Blue Surf, but we will be back soon...hopefully with a group!
