Nantipa is the Chorotegan word for blue. So, it's only natural that the boutique Hotel Nantipa is surrounded by the deep blue waters of the Gulf of Nicoya.

The thatched-roof Manzú Restaurant serves traditional Tico recipes with a modern twist. And just outside your door, you'll find endless ways to explore, including horseback riding, artisan fishing, and surfing.


Hotel Nantipa offers 19 guest bungalows and suites and 2 Three Bedroom Beachfront Villas scattered in a 2.3-hectare (5.7 acres) property with 155 meters of unique beachfront glory. Surrounded by carefully landscaped flora to preserve privacy, every unit is equipped with climate controls, flat SMART TVs with cable, streaming capabilities (Netflix and YouTube ready), a working desk, a small dining table, chairs, hammocks, etc. Wi-Fi, and a minibar.


Nantipa's Restaurant (Manzú) is located on the beach, with direct ocean views and sunset. The main dining area features 15 tables that easily accommodate 50 guests in a cozy, inviting, and relaxed ambiance. Mixology experts from the Mulberry Project have prepared creative and unique cocktails featuring Costa Rica's tropical fruits and local liqueurs, inviting visitors to mingle, unwind and enjoy the natural beauty.

Tours and Adventures

Santa Teresa and its surroundings (Playa del Carmen, Malpaís, Cabo Blanco, Montezuma, etc.) are great places to explore if you have a flair for adventure.

Horseback Riding - Experience an unforgettable journey through Mal Pais's most spectacular views on Horseback! The guided tour includes a ride up the mountain to enjoy the viewpoints of the coast and jungle.

Surfing Lessons - Costa Rica is well known as a surfing destination, and it's time to experience it yourself. Take a 2-hour surfing lesson in Playa Carmen or Playa Hermosa with the certified staff.

Montezuma Waterfall - This canopy consists of 9 cables and 13 platforms that are suspended high above the forest floor. The tour allows the opportunity to see several plants and animals unique to the area, including possible howler and white-faced monkeys, parrots, iguanas, and much more.

Hikes in Cabo Blanco National Park - The first major conservation project in Costa Rica, this reserve came into force to protect the area from deforestation around the Peninsula of Nicoya in the 1950s.

Canopy Tour - Surrounded by Cabo Blanco National Park, set in the quiet Village of Mal País, this Canopy tour is just 10-15 minutes away from Santa Teresa. The canopy of Malpais has the best ocean views, diverse wildlife, and over 200 trees lining the tropical forest.

Tour to Tortuga Island - The breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the Nicoya Península. During the boat ride, you may encounter cheerful dolphins, jumping manta rays, primitive turtles, and in some cases while in-season humpback & pilot whales.
