Blue Surf Sanctuary is a delightful oasis comprised of four high end, truly gorgeous Bungalows, designed to be utilized as one 'house' or 'unit' for family gatherings, vacationing with friends or private retreats OR to be rented separately.

We are located right at Suck Rock, a famous surf break in Costa Rica and we are within steps of stunning white sand beaches hosting some of the best surf and breath taking sunsets in Costa Rica .

We are happy to Rent ONE BUNGALOW or all four for your own customized getaway.

Located at the far end of Northern Santa Teresa, near the most distinctive small hotels and retreats..far enough to feel the seclusion offered at the pristine beach but close enough to run into town for a coffee, a night out or to check out the new small and quaint shopping area with an ambient coffee house and high end gift shop.

An all tile pool, outdoor shower and inviting outside rancho kitchen/ common area render Blue Surf Sanctuary a peaceful hideaway for a dream come true experience! Every Bungalow features lovely balconies that offer tree top views, ocean breezes and the exotic sounds of the jungle.

A note on the area's ACTIVITIES & ATTRACTIONS

SURFING
Santa Teresa and Mal Pais host some of the best and least crowded surfing in Costa Rica. The area offers many different breaks to serve the skill levels of all surfers. The experienced surfer will be stoked to find themselves in one of the most renown surf locations in the world yet many surf breaks here are long even beach breaks with sandy bottoms making our beaches a great and safe place to learn to surf.

ATVs / Quad Bikes
Quads are for sure the funnest mode of transportation to explore the back roads and to find the gorgeous beaches and great tucked away restaurants in Santa Teresa/Mal País.

Massage & Spa Services
We are happy to arrange a wide variety of spa services in the privacy of your bungalow.

SNORKELING and SCUBA DIVING
Grab a snorkel and explore the deep tide pools in Mal Pais or use pacific divers-costarica to experience our beautiful waters.

Horse Tour
A wonderful way to take in this wonderful countryside is on horseback. The tour is probably the most natural way to experience the jungle and beaches of Santa Teresa/Mal País.

FISHING
Local guides will take you to some of the best fishing spots the area has to offer.

CANOPY TOUR
The local zip line operator is Canopy Del Pacifico. They will pick you up from the hotel and bring you into the heart of Cabo Blanco National Park.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: Hola~ I am a Nurse Practitioner (by profession) and avid traveler (by choice). We fell in love with Costa Rica when we visited and felt drawn to the area of Santa Teresa. The area is very laid back, as if you are taken back in time, and has a magical vibe you can only experience first hand. I have 2 grown children, 3 step daughters and 3 step-grand daughters. We hope when they are old enough we can bring them down for summers and when they go back to school they can brag to all their friends about seeing monkeys, iguanas and tropical birds. I love 'meeting' all our guests and helping coordinate their travel and excursions. Please don't hesitate to contact me regarding our little slice of paradise and I hope to 'meet' you soon! Pura Vida!

                      Why the Owner Chose Playa Santa Teresa:
                      Santa Teresa is one of the most amazing locations I have ever traveled to and I fell in love with the area and the people. The area takes you back in time, letting you live a 'simpler life'. People are genuinely friendly and helpful. The natural, untouched beauty of the area is like nothing else you will ever see.
