Besides surfing, Santa Teresa packs a variety of things to do. Many visitors enjoy horseback riding, hiking and canopy tours. This village couldn’t be better for spending some R and R with the family on its cozy beaches. However, if you’re looking for adventure, be sure to take a day trip to Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, 5 kilometers away. As the country’s first protected area, this park encompasses 1,270 hectares of mixed forest filled with 150 species of birds, including brown pelicans, laughing gulls, ospreys and brown boobies. In fact, this tip of the peninsula is an important seabird sanctuary. Rest assured, there are forest trails and stunning ocean views awaiting your visit.
