La Posada Surf Hostel
Reviews (2)
4.5 out of 5

An international hostel and a typical 'Posada' in the middle of Santa Teresa, few steps from the beach, in one of the best spots to surf and enjoy the suggestive colors of the sunset on the ocean. In La Posada, we offer a common area with a billiard and the bar, a lounge atmosphere with videos and music, Hammocks, a communal kitchen, and a swimming pool. We love to gather, have family dinner and unite with all cultures. Come join us and be part of la Posada family.

Location

We are located in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, surrounded by lush green jungle, paradisiacal sand beaches with the best surf spots, natural swimming pools, waterfalls, and national parks. Apart from the surf lessons, we want to create an unforgettable surf vacation customized to your needs and to make sure you enjoy the waves and Costa Rica’s beauty as much as we do. In La Posada you will find good vibes and surfers who will be more than happy to help you out with any doubt, question or guidance. And, of course, we are here to help with any extras you would like to add. It’s a family feeling in La Posada – come as a guest and leave as a friend.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

I had one of the best holidays of my life.
Hostel La Posada is the perfect chilled space to disconnect from the busy city life and to flow into a different time-space.

The hostel is a perfect place for anyone looking for a comfortable and Costa Rican experience, as it has not at all a cookie cutter feel.

The owners Guillermo and Ramiro and the all the staff are very welcoming and genuine, I felt like I was with family after 2 days.

I had a private room on the ground level with a nice hammock outside to take naps after surf lessons.

The breakfast pancakes are great!

One wakes up with the Roosters wake up call from the neighboring houses, what a treat!

The hostel has a tall mango tree right by the gazebo where the common area is located under, and a number of trees pass by and sit and sing. And sometimes squirrels are going up and down.

The rooms are decorated with amazing murals which make the atmosphere very artistic.

The Pool is great! One cools off there whenever one wants. Which in my case was often.

I let the hostel booked my surf lessons for me with a local instructor, Victor. I had a blast and I learned how to stand on the board from the first day.

We were going to a neihbouring beach called Cabuya because the waves there are perfect because they are long.

But I also went alone to surf at hermosa beach once I got the hang of it.

There are lots of little food places called Sodas, they are the real deal.

I went to soda La Amistad, just like 50 meters from la Posada to eat Casados prepared by Doña Goyita, they are awesome and the price is great. They also has nice burgers.

I also went often to Taco Corner to eat Burritos. They are awesome as well. The Mechada burrito and the Tuna one were my best picks. But i tried all of them and after surf lessons I was happy and full with a burrito in my stomach.

There are 2 entrances to the beach close by. It only takes like 5 minutes to be on the beach.

The sunsets were awesome. The people staying at the hostel and also some staff that was off duty would all go to the beach around 5 to chill and watch the sunset.

I had a amazing experience.

And I will probably come back very soon


How were the surf lessons?

     

Yes. I really liked my surf lessons. I learned a lot on the first day. And i was able to stand on the board from day one.
The instructors give you advice and we had reviews to watch videos after some lessons to see ourselves and learn from the mistakes we were making

Surf beaches around Santa Teresa
Playa El Carmen is the most popular spot in this laid back Santa Teresa surf area. It is an excellent open beach break for all standards. Surfing Playa Santa Teresa is a mix of sand and volcanic rock which create some barrel riding waves. Hermosa offers gentler waves, an excellent spot for beginners.

Air temperature in Santa Teresa is the same year round 32°C. The seasons can be divided in two: From December to April you have the Dry Season, and from May to November the Wet Season. The busiest time for tourism in Costa Rica is the Dry Season.

Santa Teresa is a year round surf destinations. From April to October is the larger swell season. From December to March waves are smaller but nice and clean, usually around 4 foot and it is probably the best time to stay at a Santa Teresa Surf Camp. The Wind is not usually a major factor and glassy offshore conditions are usually best in the morning.

The area has dozens of waves off the beaten track waiting to be explored and surfed from Manzanillo in the north and around to Montezuma on the other side. Come Surf Santa Teresa with us...
