Cleansing Waters of Santa Teresa

Santa TeresaOne of my favorite parts of going to the beach is watching and listening to the waves go in and out. Let me guess — I’m not the only one who feels this way! During my recent trip to Costa Rica, three girlfriends and I drove from Coco to Santa Teresa, where we actually stayed quite a ways out of town, which is long and stretched out as it is. This move had both pluses and minuses. Let’s start with the one major negative: a crab invasion. But that was a small price to pay for the Costa Rican paradise we got to retreat to, and the deserted jungle beaches with no one else on them for miles. The water was active when we were there, with quite a current. But it was also swirling and beautiful, with ever-changing neutral colors that beckoned us out into the ocean. For a desert girl from Las Vegas, nothing is more cleansing than the ocean waters of a deserted beach!
