The Jungle Beaches of Santa Teresa

Santa TeresaMy favorite part about the beaches of Costa Rica is how in some parts, the jungle ends abruptly, opening up to pristine beach. I love the feeling of walking through dense trees and following a narrow trail in the humid air that eventually opens up to the ocean.Β When my three friends and I arrived at this slice of Costa Rican paradise in Santa Teresa, we threw down our sarongs and ran into the water. It felt like you could swim out for miles and still touch the floor. The jungle/surf combo makes the beaches quieter than what I was used to growing up near the coast in the States. That and the fact that there is virtually no one else on them!
