Welcome to Mal Pais Santa Teresa Costa Rica

The booming surf paradise of Mal Pais / Santa Teresa is the place to see or be seen this summer. Check out everything you need to build your vacation of a lifetime here!

Mal Pais and Santa Teresa lie on the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, which juts far into the Pacific Mal Pais   Santa Teresa Costa RicaOcean on Costa Rica's Northern Pacific coast. A few nautical miles out away from the shore, the ocean bottom drops to over one thousand meters deep.

Fish that dwell in the open ocean are often close to the shore, providing a spectacular environment for diving, fishing, snorkeling, and scenic boating, with visibility during the dry season of depths up to 100 feet.

Depending on the time of year, visiting Mal Pais / Santa Teresa area may bring you encounters with a wide array of sharks, tuna, manta rays, dolphins, jacks, barracuda, turtles, and even migrating whales traveling past the Malpais bay.

Mal   Pais Santa Teresa Costa RicaMal   Pais Santa Teresa Costa RicaMal   Pais Santa Teresa Costa Rica

The convergence of major marine currents coupled with the tropical climate and plankton blooms during the heavy rains supports a nutrient rich environment that is a lifeline in the migration routes of many species. Large schools of brilliant and majestic fish, soft coral systems, and mollusks abound in the rich maritime environment close to shore.

Mal   Pais Santa Teresa Costa RicaMal Pais is a tranquil and modest seaside village with moderate and casual hotels spread out along three kilometers of road. While in recent years Santa Teresa has seen a boom in development, Malpais has retained a quiet and tranquil atmosphere with large areas undeveloped and unspoiled.

Mal Pais along the coast is rocky in most places, with fascinating volcanic formations gracing unique natural scenery. Old growth jungle stretches right into the shore, where one may find a wide range of shore quality, from short sandy stretches, to rocky outcroppings, or beaches composed entirely of tiny crumbling seashells. Mal Pais is an ideal place to experience solitude within striking, unspoiled shore life.

The village of Mal Pais is nearly devoid of shops and tourist services, although hotels and dining options cover a wide range from local rustic to high budget restaurants with tremendous views into the hills of Guanacaste.

At the southern tip of Mal Pais is a small fishing port, which serves as a base for boat tours around the tip of the peninsula. Fishermen will be guaranteed a good catch on nearly any day, and sightseers will not be disappointed if they visit the waters of the maritime sanctuary of Cabo Blanco.

Surf in Playa Carmen – Mal Pais

10 major reasons that have turned to Costa Rica into a destiny for surfers and their families:

1.    Warm waters and deserted beaches with paradisiac landscapes
2.    Year-round consistent waves
3.    Excellent instructors in all the region and incredible surf camps
4.    More than 700 of coastline combined on both the Caribbean and Pacific which generates surf for all levels
5.    Thousands of break points
6.    International surfing competitions
7.    Many openings from rivers to the sea especially in the Pacific coast make the surf more interesting
8.    There are no gigantic waves as you might find all year in Hawaii but kilometres of consistent breaks
9.    Costa Rica is so small that it is very easy to move from one beach to another and to have access
10.   There is a culture of acceptance of surfeadores, many shops rent boards, bars and restaurants and hotels want to help make your surfing vacation an unforgettable one - and one of these places is Hotel Playa Carmen.

 

Surfing in Playa Carmen - Mal Pais

The best climate is December to April.

This area is the ideal destination for surfers looking to be in a remote, calm place, with good waves and a comfortable atmosphere and many places with excellent atmosphere.

As the beach is covered with reef rocks it makes for an interesting wave formation near the beach. When the breaks are bigger check out the Manzanillo Reef to the south of Playa Carmen. The best waves can be found to the southeast of Playa Carmen.

 

OPEN SURF INTERNATIONAL

Costa Rica will be the Venue for the World Open Surf Tournament. The tournament will be on March 8 and 9 and Playa Carme is hopeful their surfers will do well in the Copa Day & Night. Carmen Beach will hope to the surfeadores in the Glass Day & Night.

Surfers from 40 different nations will descend on beautiful Jaco Beach.

Costa Rica will compete with countries like Brazil and South Africa, two huge powers in the world of surf.

The waters of Playa Hermosa were chosen by the ISA due to their constancy in waves and their proximity (4 km) to the center of Jacó, a city that has the required infrastructure developed to provide accommodation for a large amount of people.

Not only did the natural riches of Costa Rica weigh in it's favor in the decision to choose this as the destination for this match, but also the excellent role Costa Rican surfers have played abroad.

In the last edition of this World Tournament held in Huntington Beach, CA in 2006 Costa Rica came in eighth place out of 40 nations.

From Montezuma you will be able to take a launch four times a day to Jaco. The travel time will be one hour and a half each way.

Mal Pais around the web:

Mal Pais is a tranquil little village with charming hotels loosely spread out along three kilometers of road.

At the southern end it borders the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve while to the north it merges with Santa Teresa where you find shops, tourist facilities and a vibrant surfer scene.
 
Mal Pais

Although Mal Pais is famed as one of the top surf destinations in Costa Rica, the most popular surf spots are actually on the beaches of

While in recent years Santa Teresa has seen a boom in development, Mal Pais has largely retained its quiet atmosphere with large areas of unspoiled nature.

The coast of Mal Pais is in many places rocky, with some bizarre volcanic formations creating fascinating scenery.

On a beach walk flocks of pelicans will sometimes be your only company. Old growth forest spills down to the shore where rocky outcroppings alternate with sandy stretches and beaches made up entirely of tiny shells.Playa SuecosAt the southern end of Mal Pais is the small fishermen port which is also the basis for tours by boat around the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. The maritime sanctuary of Cabo Blanco serves as a nursery for many aquatic species and from your boat you can watch dolphins, manta rays or whales. If you are into fishing, a good catch is almost guaranteed.There is no entrance to the Cabo Blanco Park from the Mal Pais side but there are various options to explore the direct neighbourhood of the National Park. You can swoop through the jungle on a canopy tour, amble on horseback through the hills of Cabo Blanco, or hike along the coast: Playa Las Suecas lies on the border to the National Park. You get there by passing by the fishermen port, then follow the dirt road until you see a small path to your right which takes you to the beach. The large rocky pool of Playa Las Suecas is the best spot for snorkeling in Mal Pais.

The village of Mal Pais is essentially devoid of shops and tourist services. Hotels and dining options however range from top notch to rustic though Mal Pais Costa Ricascenic beachfront with the surf bashing over jagged cliffs and views across the beach of Santa Teresa and far beyond to the hills of Guanacaste.

From Mal Pais to the Cabo Blanco National Park

From the village center of Mal Pais it's a scenic 9 km drive to Cabo Blanco on a little road over the hills and via the small village of Cabuya. The first 2 kms of way passes through a river valley with marvelous lush jungle covering steep slopes on both sides. Then the road goes steeply uphill into the rolling hills of the Cabo Blanco backlands. There are no houses all the way to Cabuya (7 km from Mal Pais) and you have to cross two rivers. In rainy season this is not always possible.
Before the road drops down to Cabuya you will have a panoramic view of the valley of Cabuya with the prominent Cemetery Island.

The Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve opens at 8 a.m. and the earlier you go the more you will see. A hike to the beach of Playa Cabo Blanco and return takes approx 4 hours. Open hours are 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Mondays and Tuesdays the Cabo Blanco Reserve is closed.

A small costal community some 150 km west of the capital city San Jose, Mal Pais lies at the southeastern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula in Puntarenas province. Around 4 km north of the Cabo Blanco National Park, this quaint beachfront village is fast becoming one of Costa Rica’s hottest tourist attractions. Extending some 6 kilometers east to west, Mal Pais is a great place to kickback, relax and surf some great waves.

A surfer’s paradise with consistent waves, good swells and a long beach break, Mal Pais is a rocky beach with sandy stretches and is covered with pretty sea shells. With lush vegetation growing alongside the coast, this uncrowded area is prefect for those who want a peaceful and quiet vacation away from the crowds. Regarded as one of Costa Rica’s best Pacific Coast beaches, Mal Pais is just a few miles south of Playa Santa Teresa, Costa Rica’s top surf spots.

With waves that are ideal for the beginner as well as the expert surfer, this beach also offers plenty of water sports such as fishing tours, sports fishing, scuba diving, kite surfing and snorkeling. For those who prefer some land based activities there is horseback riding, canopy tours, mountain biking, quad biking and some great hiking trails to explore.

If you are an avid bird watcher, Mal Pais is home to a huge number of coastal and migratory birds that are a treat to see. The nightlife here is also plenty of fun, with a number of bars and parties held on a frequent basis. However, there are plenty of quiet places along the beach’s secluded coves, reefs and tide pools to have a romantic evening.

Great weather all year round makes Mal Pais, among Costa Rica’s trendiest vacation destinations. Usually uncrowded most of the time, enjoy the area’s natural beauty with plenty of luxury and affordable accommodations, bars and restaurants dotting the coast. A major pastime here is just relaxing on the beach or sunbathing.

When getting to Mal Pais it is important to keep in mind that there are two ways to get here. One is to catch a ferry from Puntarenas to Paquera or Playa Naranjo and then drive out here. Or you could take a domestic flight from San Jose to Tambor then take a taxi out to Mal Pais.
