More About Play Cielo

“The most beautiful beaches in Latin America.”

Santa Teresa is situated on the Pacic coast of the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica. It is a small village about 150km (93 miles) west of the capital San Jose. It used to be a remote fishing village, but today surfers, yogis and beach lovers have discovered the oasis. The charm of a sleepy little village still remains: there is one, unpaved, main road, dotted with little shops, restaurants and few supermarkets along each side. Miles and miles of pristine beach, with tropic vegetation and wild animals, such as monkeys, iguanas and more, have made Santa Teresa one of the most beautiful beaches in Latin America.


Tropical and warm year around!

Rainy (Sept-mid Nov) with overcast and possible showers throughout the day.

getting from san jose to santa teresa can be done by road or air:

We highly recommend taking a 22 minutes scenic domestic flight from San Jose to Tambor, which is about 45 minutes away from Santa Teresa. The carrier that fly there is Sansa ( offering daily service to San Jose and other attractions in Costa Rica such as Arenal, Tamarindo and more! Driving from San Jose lasts about 6 hours, and includes a 1.5 hours drive to Puntarenas, from which one would board, along with the car, the 1.5 hours ferry ride across the peninsula to Paquera, and another 1.5 hours drive to

Santa Teresa. Public transportation is also available from San Jose to Cobano (normally twice a day), and then switch to the regional green bus to Santa Teresa, connecting Cobano, Mal Pais and Santa Teresa. For those coming from the US, you can also try flying into Liberia, an international airport for several US carriers, located 200km (140 miles), or about 4 hours drive.Flying using a chartered private helicopter is also possible; there is a landing eld in the village.

Located right on the beach, with incredible sunset views, Habanero is one of the best dishes in town! One of Santa Teresa’s most renowned restaurants, Habanero is a beach front Mexican Grill and Bar offering incredible fresh ingredients and excellent Mexican fusion food. House specialties include killer margaritas, the best ever guacamole, fresh fish and seafood, including lobster tacos, grilled whole fish and more, and awesome Mexican dishes.
