Santa Teresa / Malpais

Surfing and a relaxed vibe is a lot of what Santa Teresa / Malpais has to offer. This perfect setting of a glistening sun combined with crystal clear waters is ideal for the many activities it has to offer such as fishing, snorkeling, kite surfing and much more. Santa Teresa / Malpais offer maximum relaxation with a number of yoga and spa centers scattered along the idilic coast. At night you can see a glorious sunset on the same beach where you used to catch a wave.
Aside from an electric current of epic waves that attract surfers from all corners of the world, Malpais is famous for its blazing sunsets that light up the sky in all shades of orange, fiery red and pink. Malpais means wasteland in Spanish, but there's perhaps nothing bad about this land other than the frantic pace at which it's being developed.
