Santa Teresa & Mal País

Situated in one of the world’s only seven Blue Zones and located between the lively surf town of Santa Teresa and Cabo Blanco Nature Preserve, Cielo del Mar is conveniently located in the quaint village of Mal País – only 2-minutes from the center of bustling Santa Teresa but offers you lush landscapes and the peace and quiet so you can rest and relax after a long day of activities, or doing nothing at all.

Once a sleepy fishing village, Santa Teresa now is known as a top world-class surf destination, attracting visitors from around the world here for the consistant waves, friendly people and a few truly beautiful beaches. Exceptional year-round surfing has brought a recent rush of international fusion in both food and beverage, trendy shops, dozens of surf shops and a super happening nightlife scene.

Despite only being two minutes away from all the action of Santa Teresa the village of Mal País still remains quiet and true to its traditional Costa Rican roots, including the area’s fresh fish market. Mal País offers consistent and uncrowded surf spots too, a few great beaches and the classic Pura Vida mentality. Making Cielo del Mar the perfect place to kickback and unwind at the end of your day…which typically is topped off with an incredible sunset right directly in front of Cielo del Mar…another reason we call it heaven by the sea.
