Best Beaches of Costa Rica

Florblanca’s community of Santa Teresa is included as one of the 10 Best Beach Towns in Costa Rica by USA Today.

As part of the “10Best” Series in their Travel section, USA Today compiled a list of the 10Best: Beaches in Costa Rica.  Santa Teresa is noted for its “low key” atmosphere, absence of notorious high tides, and an abundance of beach activities, including surfing, SUP, and snorkeling.

Florblanca loves being situated in Santa Teresa and we work hard to give back to our community.  Our efforts towards sustainability directly affect and influence the community.  We are a key source of local jobs; we support local businesses, farmers, and fishermen; we are a member of the Costa Rica Blue Flag Ecological Program through our beach clean up events; we’re working to build a biogarden to address water shortages; and we support local schools and  groups through various campaigns.

We applaud our community for being recognized as one of the Best Beaches in Costa Rica.
