Santa Teresa in the NY Times
The Road of Santa Teresa and Mal Pais
Santa Teresa was the topic of an interesting article that was just published in the New York Times. The article talked about the ongoing debate on whether or not to pave the road in Mal Pais, Santa Tereasa, and Playa Hermosa. For those of you who have traveled to our little piece of tropical paradise, part of the experience is coming in on the bumpy dirt road. After a few days of traveling back and forth through the dust or mud, the dirt road gets a little old.
The good news is that the municipality has started a project to pave parts of the road in Mal Pais and Santa Teresa. They are focusing their efforts on the more populated areas in the center of town close to restaurants, hotels, and vacation rentals. Hopefully the material will hold up to the elements of Costa Rica and the pavement will last for years.
A lot of our vacation rentals are in less populated areas just away from town and from where they will be paving. Don’t worry, because we always factor in road noise and dust when we choose to list a rental property. All of our listings are down by the beach away from the road or up on the hill with an amazing ocean view.
No matter what, you will always get the authentic feeling of a small beach town on the Nicoya Peninsula. There are no large hotels or high rises in our area and there is only the one road that runs North and South. If you are looking for the perfect balance between luxury and ecotourism then contact us today about finding the perfect beach rental or hotel in Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, or Playa Hermosa.
