Those who want to enjoy the beautiful Costa Rican beaches but get away from some of the more popular destinations find a haven in Santa Teresa. This remote beach town imbues an energy that infects any tourist who finds his or herself on the shores. Enjoy the white sandy beaches and sparkling blue ocean as you enjoy water sports, such as surfing, snorkeling, or swimming.

For your visit to this surf haven, consider the Selina Santa Teresa North. This four-story building is more than a hostel. It offers a range of comfortable rooms, including dorms, private rooms, deluxe rooms and suites. The atmosphere of the hotel complements the artistic vibe and culture of the surrounding city.

From the Selina, you can easily walk the streets of Santa Teresa and enjoy the bars and nightlife, live music and delicious food in the restaurants. You can also find a tasty meal and a drink at the on-site restaurant and bar.

Although one of the biggest draws to Santa Teresa is the ocean, those who do not wish to swim in the sea can take a lap in the swimming pool. You can also sit by the pool and soak in the Costa Rican sun while you wait for your next adventure.

There are plenty of exciting tours to take to the surrounding areas, with the Selina Santa Teresa North as your home base. Explore the jungle on foot as you hike through the nearby nature and wildlife preserves, wild waterfalls, Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve or Curu Wildlife Reserve. Take a tour of the jungle, beaches and farmland on horseback.

Before or after your adventurous day surfing or hiking, relax by the pool or take a yoga or meditation class. Try something a little different with aerial yoga, aerial silks or SUP yoga. You can also indulge in a massage after a long day.

The Selina may be the place for families, groups and solo travelers to party and explore Costa Rica, but you can also check in with those left at home thanks to the free WiFi throughout the hotel, including in the dorm rooms. There is a shuttle from San José that will take you straight to the Selnia Santa Teresa north or from one of the other Selina hotels around the country.
