Why anna lundstrom chose Puntarenas

Santa Teresa is Special! Not surprisingly our beach was recently voted 'The Most Beautiful in Central and South America'. Unspoilt, endlessly long and white, our beach has the feeling untouched nature that today's visitor seeks. We had traveled all over Hawaii, Mexico, The Caribbean and Asia seeking a little piece of paradise. We found it here!

So far the best place on earth

  • 5 of 5

I have done some travel in my life and this is by far the best place I have been to. First, Costa Rica is a lovely and diversified country with friendly people. You will find the best part on the most westerly tip of the country - Santa Teresa; a small, genuine and super cool village along the beach. The right place to stay at on this strip of beach is Papa Pochote - great location, great architecture and truly great people.

Three perfect weeks!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Papa Pochote for two weeks and had the time of our life, if your coming here to surf or just be close to the nature you wont be disappointed. Our stay on Papa Pochote couldent been better, the garden is big and cowered by big pochote threes and offers you some well needed shade from the sun. If you want to work on the tan just walk thru the gate and your on the beach with surf breaking in front of the property. Big thanks to the owners as well, made us feel welcome and at home.

See you next year!

Really nice place to stay, good staff, good accommodation. Santa theresa is a really beautiful place offering a great lifestyle for most people. I can strongly recommend to stay at Papapochote if you decide to visit Santa Theresa, located right on the beach in front of the best sandbanks in the village.

Perfect Beach Spot

  • 5 of 5

I was at Papa Pochote for 14 days in February, really great place. Rooms were great, clean,

comfortable and cute.

The farm is huge, we were 16 surfers staying at Papa Pochote, there are good places to

hangout on the farm and at the same time no problem finding spots were you can chill with

a good book and the nice sound of waves breaking, in one of many hammock spread out all

over the farms garden.

Easy walking distance to cafés, restaurants and stores, but why bother, just make your own

coffee and walk 30 sec and enjoy it at my new favourite beach Santa Teresa.
