Finally arrived in Santa Teresa after a long day of traveling. I instantly felt at home when I passed by a surf shop that was owned by a fellow Canadian. I chatted to some other travelers who were also from Canada and had been staying in Santa Teresa for a while and loved it.
I spent a lot of time sunbathing and reading on the beach. I even found an awesome little swimming hole that I had all to myself. The sunsets on the beach were absolutely stunning and there were always lots of dogs running around – needless to say, I was in heaven! I even witnessed a wake of vultures chowing down on a moray eel.
I ate nearly every meal at The Bakery – one of my favourite restaurants. They serve baked goods, fresh salads, waffles, bagels and a variety of other delicious items. The staff is very friendly and the food is fresh. They even treated me to dessert because I ate seven out of nine meals there 😉 Talk about service!
I also ate a couple of my meals at Nativo – they serve tacos, fajitas and burgers among other favourites. It’s a great place to hang out after a day on the beach and enjoy a few drinks and a meal. If you’re a sports fan, this is the place to catch a game or check out a surfing video.
One of my favourite things to do while in Santa Teresa was hang out in the hammock at my hostel – I really need to get one of these!
