Hotel Florblanca

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

The best of the surfer-chic beachside boutique hotels in laid-back Santa Teresa village, Florblanca is intimate, small-scale and integrated with nature.

Secluded villas in lush hardwoods have huge terraces and al fresco showers open to the surrounding rainforest, and they sit just off the sand on the best beach in the village.

There are plenty of activities on offer (surf classes, spa pampering, horseback riding and scuba diving), the food is organic farm-to-table and the resort is perfectly positioned for romantic Pacific Ocean sunsets and cocktails under the stars.

Surrounding area

At the heart of the least spoilt stretch of the wild Nicoya Peninsula, Santa Teresa village is where off-duty Hollywood surfer dudes go to unwind.

This is one of the country’s choicest under-the-radar destinations – with a wonderful low-key luxury feel, superb beaches backed by rainforest and a sense of seclusion and intimacy with nature which is quintessentially Costa Rican pura vida.

But it’s a long, tough half-day drive in, over rugged, rutted roads.
