Hi. We are a social couple in our early 50's and are making our way to CR for the first time. Santa Teresa seems like the place for my husband as it isnt too off the beaten path as he has never travelled outside of Vancouver before and doesnt want to spend a lot of time moving around (think basecamp).
We are going to be looking for accommodation on the beach, with a pool area, hopefully with a small kitchen, maybe a little out of town but close enough to town he won't feel to 'in the woods'. $200 is about all we can afford. We would be staying for 10-12 days after 5 or so days SJ - Arenal/La Fortuna.
I really like the look of Santa Teresa but since my husband doesnt surf and I am not able to anymore is there snorkelling or light swimming there?
Does this sound like a good place for us to 'base'? We won't have a vehicle but hope to rent one for a day or two to explore the rest of the Nicoya beaches.
Any suggestions or input into Santa Teresa would be greatfully appreciated!!!
