"Mal Pais evokes a feeling of freedom and earthiness quite unlike one can imagine in the city". - Bahayan Costa Rica
In Southernmost Guanacaste along the Peninsula de Nicoya, Mal Pais and Santa Teresa are a dramatic plethora of natural variances; rocky coves, white sand beaches, waterfalls, rainforests, secret coves, embodying the true Pura Vida mantra near Cabo Blanco National Park. The historical draw was surfing at famous beaches like Playa Mar Azul, Playa Santa Teresa, Playa Manzanillo, and Playa Carmen but the fishing, boating, snorkeling, diving, hiking, horseback riding, biking, and 4-wheeling have become world class.
For many years, the Southern Nicoya Peninsula was off the beaten tourist track so backpackers and surfers were the modern re-discoverers of the beautiful beaches and lush forests. As the infrastructure improved to the region of the sister towns, Mal Pais, and Santa Teresa morphed into one of Costa Rica’s most appreciated off the beaten paths.
Santa Teresa has become a bustling surf town with modern comforts while Malpais has retained its laid-back vibe and beckons travelers in search of nature and tranquility. Life is slow paced, while animals still find shelter in the thickets and monkeys’ traverse through the canopy.
