Santa Teresa is a tiny but rapidly rising town in Costa Rica’s Puntarenas Province. It is roughly 150 kilometers (93 miles) west of San José, the capital city. Santa Teresa, like other coastal settlements on the Nicoya Peninsula, began as a lonely fishing community. Cattle ranching and logging were the other major businesses. Santa Teresa was “discovered” by low-budget visitors in the early 1990s and has been booming since since.
