Malpaís-Santa Teresa

Nestled at the end of the Nicoya Peninsula, the two villages of Santa Teresa and Malpais will welcome you as privileged visitors on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, far from civilization.

Malpaís beach has a very irregular rocky seaboard. It has great natural and scenic beauty, due to its coastal vegetation and very pleasant wooded zones. Barrigona point can be found in the central part of this beach, and it’s nice for hiking and the observation of the beautiful surrounding maritime landscape.

Toward the south extreme of Malpaís, Punta Cuevas can be found, an extremely beautiful place which borders the Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Preserve.
In this beach other activities can be practiced: surf, horseback rides, dive, sport fishing, mountain bike, kayak’s rides, watch the dusk, etc.
