About the Southern Tip of the Nicoya Peninsula

Our luxury vacation rentals are located in Santa Teresa, Mal Pais, and Playa Hermosa on the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica.  (see MAP) What began as a small remote fishing village on the Pacific Ocean has grown into one of the most popular vacation destinations in Costa Rica.  Although this area is becoming more well known, the beautiful mountains and lush jungle hug the coastline leaving no room for the development of large hotels or high rises.  This absence of large hotels gives our area the “small town” feel while providing unobstructed views of the coastline and the famous Costa Rican sunsets.

The amazing beaches, diverse wildlife, consistent surf, and luxurious beach homes have attracted travelers from all over the world.  Many have come for a short visit, only to end up falling in love with our little piece of paradise.  The diverse community has produced a wide variety of restaurants started by chefs from all over the world offering cuisine to compliment every taste and budget.

Santa Teresa is known for its world class surf, but you don’t need to be a surfer to enjoy the area.  The beaches here are ranked as some of the most beautiful in the world.  You can explore the white sand beaches of Santa Teresa or Playa Hermosa, or head down to Cabo Blanco National park in Mal Pais to check out the wildlife and amazing scenery.  There are lots of ACTIVITIES like fishing, zip line canopy tours, yoga, snorkeling, horseback riding, stand up paddle boarding, ATV tours, waterfall tours, kayaking, surfing, and more.

The Southern Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica offers something for everyone.  You can fill your day with fun activities and explore the wonderful biodiversity that Costa Rica has to offer, or you can sit in a hammock with a book under a palm tree, just steps from your luxury villa, and enjoy some well deserved relaxation.
