Nantipa is located in the heart of Santa Teresa, a Costa Rican authentic beach town with its own unique culture and style. Many define Santa Teresa as the new home for Barefoot Luxury, combining World Class surfing conditions, great yoga studios and instructors, superb cuisine and great nature and parks, all in a relaxed atmosphere that depicts Costa Rica’s Pura Vida lifestyle. Nantipa is found 150 meters south of the main Plaza / School, in a property that spans from the main road to the beach, presenting 155 meters (approximately 450 feet) of beach line. The property is heavily forested and has direct access to two swimming spots – one with natural ocean pools that form in the low tide – and is within close walking distance to the best breaks and waves. Nantipa offers 15 guest bungalows scattered in a 2.3 hectare property with 155 meters of beachfront. Most rooms feature full or partial ocean views, along with garden and pool views. Every unit has climate controls, cable TV.

Is there beginner surfing right out front on the beach or do you have to walk a ways?
There are indeed a few surfing spots walking distance from the hotel. But not right in front of the hotel.

"The Ninta Bungalows are ocean-front and have plunge pools. The rooms closer to the restaurant will be quieter at night."
"If traveling with kids choose the Nanku Suites they are larger and for honeymoons or romantic stay choose the Ninta Bungalows."
"Two types of rooms for couples and families (fit 4)"
"Beachfront Bungalows are the perfect romantic retreat."
