Visitor Reviews of Playa Santa Teresa
“I live here for half the year. The crowds are not a factor if you are not a party boy. You can get great waves at first light till 7:30 or 8:00. Crowds thin out some by nine for work. Crowded is a relative term. Often you will see a number of newbies in the line up not really surfing. I am 65 years old and find a peak coming my way plenty often. Aggro surfers are most likely just visiting. Pura Vida”
