When you arrive in Paquera with the Puntarenas ferry you'll have to drive about 40 to the town of Cóbano. From there go in the direction to Mal País. After another 10 km you'll reach the road that goes parallel to the beach turn right and after about 2 more kilometres you'll have Playa Santa Teresa at you left. It has a beautiful white to greyish sand beach and also lots of rocks with small pools where one can sit in the water and observe small creatures from the ocean. The beaches southern limit is the Arios Rock and extends to the north up to the Playa Carmen, both of them rocky hilltops. It has moderate to strong waves suitable for surfing.
