Local Knowledge & Cool Perks
I have lived in Santa Teresa for eight years, originally from the UK I moved here with my wife and young child and ended up having three more children. I have learnt to surf, I feel I have gained a lot of knowledge about the things to do, things to avoid and how to make your transition to a new country easier.Costa Rica does have a reputation of being the happiest place on earth and the Ticos are indeed a friendly lot. However don't feel put off if you don't find the same level of warmth from the ex-pats in Santa Teresa. Initially we are a bit of a stand offish group but thats only because we are so used to people coming and going, given time you will soon feel to part of this wonderful community.
There are some really good Facebook pages you should have a look at like "Whats on Santa Teresa" which has daily live updates on events and special offers and "Mal Pais Buy and Sell" which should be your first port of call when looking for anything!

I was born in the UK but have traveled and lived all over the world. My favourite place on this planet is Cape Town which is where I now call home. Before Cape Town I lived in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica for 8 years so can write some pretty good guides for there too! I work in travel, live travel and have a family of travellers who come along with me. I look forward to helping you all find and plan that next special travel experience.
