This is a transformation most guests take home with them, turning into the person they always wished to be.

Activities and Attractions Nearby

Surfing – Santa Teresa and Mal Pais play host some of the most popular and uncrowned non-mainstream surfing spots in Costa Rica. The area offers a variety of breaks to cater to the skill levels of all surfers. The seasoned surfer will be inspired to find themselves in one of the most well known surf locations on earth yet many surf breaks here are lengthy even beach breaks with sandy bottoms making the beaches a great and safe place to learn surfing.

Yoga – Practicing Yoga is very popular in this area. The hotel can help you pick a Yoga studio based on your preferences. ATV/Quads – Quads are one of the most enjoyable modes of transportation to explore the hidden back alleys and stunning beaches of Santa Teresa. Don’t miss the town’s heavily guarded local secrets- the tucked away global and local cuisine restaurants in Santa Teresa/Mal Pais. Massage and Spa Services – Blue Sanctuary can arrange a wide variety of wellness, holistic and spa services in the seclusion of your bungalow.

Montezuma Waterfalls – One of the things you must do while in Santa Teresa, is taking a day trip to the Montezuma waterfalls. Renting an ATV is probably the most enjoyable way to discover the town’s oceanic wonders. The lengthier, more scenic route along the coast is well worth the extra 15-20 minutes it takes to get there. The property will gladly give you directions or plan a canopy tour for you while you are there. Once you arrive in Montezum, the parking area is on your left and a small, well-shaded area is available to protect your car / AV. Adjacent to the bridge you will find freshly cut coconuts as a refreshing beverage before you embark on your hike. You can either avail the services of a guide or see the places on your own. Give the guides a decent “tip” and they won’t disappoint you and show you places you might haven’t seen otherwise. It’s best to wear hard wearing, yet comfortable shoes. You will be walking through wet, slippery rocks as well as muddy hills. At the waterfalls you will most likely see locals jumping and diving from rocks above the falls.

Horseback Riding Tours – A remarkable way to take in this incredible countryside is on horseback. This tour is probably the most uncontrived way to experience the jungle and beaches of Santa Teresa/Mal Pai­s.

Fishing – Knowledgeable local guides will take you to some of the best fishing spots the region has to offer. Sport fishing and tours to Tortuga Island can easily be arranged by the hotel as well.

Canopy Tours – The local zip line operator is Canopy Del Pacifico. They will pick you up from the hotel and bring you into the heart of Cabo Blanco National Park. Guests will then zip line through the thick tropical rain forest on lines spanning as long as 500m. Guests will delight in the vistas of the Pacific Ocean as they shoot across 9 platforms.

Bird Watching- There are more than 894 species including 19 globally threatened indigenous species in Costa Rica.

Cabo Blanco Nature Preserve – The first National Park to be established in Costa Rica is a 10 minute drive from Blue Surf.
