All guests will be staying at Otro Lado Guesthouse. The property has four villas surrounding a pool, creating a relaxed and friendly atmosphere; beautifully designed with a blend of Asian and Caribbean worlds. Each two-floor lodge has one queen-sized bed, two bathrooms, two sofas in the living room, and a fully equipped kitchen. %There is also plenty of private garden space with a hammock and porch. The main bathroom on the first floor is open air with natural stone work surrounded by tropical flowers. The fully equipped kitchen provides a stove, fridge, freezer, and coffee maker.

The property has six spacious private rooms that offer guests simplicity and comfort with a private lounging area surrounded by a tropical garden for relaxation. The rooms offer a more economical alternative to the villas, while maintaining the same standards and level of comfort. Every bedroom has a private bathroom and a terrace where you can admire the surrounding tropical vegetation and pool view.


For surfing, you need focus, a clear mind, and a strong body all of which are also three benefits of yoga. Learn to breathe, clear your head, and hold poses to strengthen muscles as a perfect out-of-water practice for catching that ride in the ocean.

Things to do (optional)

There are always so many things to do and see while you're on vacation! Make sure you don't miss out on some great activities and must-see's.

Fishing trip

Brave the pacific coast’s mellow water of Mal Pais on a boat. You will be taken out on a two-and-a-half-hour trip along the nature reserves to go snorkeling or fishing. If you’re lucky you might even see dolphins or wales!

Zip lining

Zip through the jungles of the Cabo Blanco nature reserve, a very popular attraction for those that come to Costa Rica and are in for some excitement and want to see the beautiful sights of the tropics while flying from tree to tree like Tarzan!

Horse riding

Take a three-hour guided ride through the mountains and on the beach. If you love to ride horses, you should definitely do it there. Your guide will take you where barely anybody comes by foot inside the rainforest, to the end of the sunny beachside.

Silk class

With silk acrobatics, a person hangs by a special fabric from the ceiling. You can use the fabric to wrap, suspend, fall, swing, and spiral your body into various positions. It is a work out and a lot of fun at the same time!

Tide pools

There are many beautiful natural tide pools along the coast of Santa Teresa. It’s the perfect place to enjoy an afternoon off, bring some beverages, and soak up the beautiful weather and nature of Costa Rica.
