Santa Teresa and it’s sister city to the South, Mal Pais (“Bad Lands”), are the destination for the jet set when they visit Costa Rica. That is not to say that these little beach towns are “built up.” Quite the contrary, they seem to have attracted the same international crowd as other parts of Costa Rica, while still maintaining the natural undeveloped feel that attracts many people to Costa Rica in the first place. That is why Santa Teresa Luxury Homes are a favorite of celebrity vacationers. The towns have that great multicultural feel without feeling commercial.

Santa Teresa & Mal Pais Restaurants
Koji. A small place that is very popular with locals and tourists alike. The fish is incredibly fresh and Koji simply makes the best sushi around. Reservations recommended.
Las Brisas del Mar. Sometimes, if you want something, you have to put in a little effort to get it. Such is the case with Las Brisas del Mar. Located at the top of a steep hill, you are either going to have to hike it, use your 1st gear driving skills or take a cab. We recommend taking the cab. However, you get there, it’s worth it. Great location with stunning sunset views.
Olam. For those looking for tasty healthy alternatives, Olam is a dream come true. Specializing in gluten free and organic foods, they serve up tasty fruit smoothies, gluten free pancakes and even smoked fish!
