Nicoya Peninsula

The coastal town of Santa Teresa in the Nicoya Peninsula is an escapist’s dream. An unpaved, dirt track, accessible only by 4×4 jeep or ATV, takes you to a cluster of surf shops, bars and buzzy restaurants. The food’s cracking, the surf always up and the area so fantastically remote that it’s no wonder the elite make this their secret hideaway.

But there is more to this place than beach and surf. We’ll arrange for you to access the large eco-reserve that lines the coast, where you will find sloths, jaguars, armadillos and a huge variety of birdlife, and without another two-legged mammal in sight. Take to the water and snorkel or scuba dive the coral reef, accessible only to those in-the-know at certain times of year.

Your only morning alarm will be the orange haze of the rising sun seeping through your shutters. You will step out onto your private, shaded yoga platform for a session before the day gets going. Join the locals in Mal Pais for a simple, but effective, form of deep-sea fishing. Bring your catch of Marlin, Red Snapper or Mahi Mahi back to your chef to fry on the BBQ, accompanied by coconut rice and a chilled Imperial Silver.

Many of our team on the ground on the Nicoya Peninsula are British or European expats so you’ll never be lost for words. Our selection of fantastic ocean-view hideaways, must-visit restaurants, and our incomparable level of service ensures you’ll experience the ultimate paradise experience in Costa Rica.
