Surf is always the main actor, and now we are accompanied by nature turning everything greener, Costa Rican blood. Pure life never stops and hostel 7 has the best price and everything you need for your trip in nicoya peninsula.
Do you like surfing? do you like the beach? Santa Teresa is the ideal place to spend a few days surfing, practicing some yoga, or just enjoying the sun and the beach. Very close to Cabo Blanco National Park and Montezuma, excellent places to escape with an atv and spend a great day riding & hiking.
Hostel Seven awaits you after an intense day to relax in the hammocks, play a pool table or ping pong, surrounded by a large garden and the positive vibe of all those who work here.
I heard the crack of my front tooth as it broke before I felt the hole it made in my face. I had just hopped off my surfboard at the end of a sunset session in Costa Rica and I stumbled slightly as I did it—just a small step forward to catch my balance, but enough that when a wash of heavy white water sent my board up and out of the waves, my face was there to catch it.
Sitting on a patch of white sand on a nearly deserted beach, steps away from a dense jungle, we were mesmerized by the thundering waves and transfixed by a family of howler monkeys, leaping from tree to tree. My 3-year-old son, James, ambled by and threatened to drop a pair of heavy coconuts right on our heads. But I was lost in a reverie, listening to the surprisingly deep, guttural calls of the monkeys.
Once a sleepy fishing village, Santa Teresa is now an increasingly luxurious surfer’s paradise filled with people who have made this particular fantasy their reality — and the occasional detox-seeking celebrity who likes living it for a week at a time. In addition to native Costa Ricans, or “Ticos,” there are American chefs (if you rent a villa, request James Kelly, who serves delicate, artful compositions of unusual local ingredients), Australian surf instructors, French cafe owners and Argentine hoteliers.
I want to be part of a Blue Zone. What is a “Blue Zone,” you ask? It is a place where people live happily and healthily for a very long time. The term was popularized by author-educator-explorer Dan Buettner in his2008 book, “The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from People Who’ve Lived the Longest.”
