Nestled in the beautiful tropical paradise of Santa Teresa this simple yet elegant property lies next to Pacific Surf School and in the midst of Costa Rica’s natural magnificence. In his birthplace Italy, Simon the hotel owner, was a real semi-pro motocross rider who by life circumstances had to leave his passion to devote his time to something that would give more productive financial returns. Nevertheless while he was studying law, he started to surf and this precise moment he realized what he wanted for his life. Then found Costa Rica, the Santa Teresa and Malpais beaches, where it’s possible be in constantly contact with the nature, live in the outdoors and go surfing (which is more a lifestyle here than anything else) could provide economic compensation. Since then Santa Teresa Surf Camp and Hammock Hotel is a great experience where Simon shares his knowledge and dream with whoever wants to not only look for surf lessons but also to live the surf philosophy in the lap of Santa Teresa, a stunning tropical paradise.
