Hotel Tropico Latino, Santa Teresa
So grateful we found this gem.
Our stay was short but Great. The staff was very friendly and helpful in every way. The Sous chef served excellent food. Kitchen staff was the best alone with the bar staff. The front desk young lady was so friendly and helped us book our ATV rentals. We truly felt at home. We are definitely planning on going back. Our friends that stay in the connecting room, Silvia Posada and her sister felt the same. Absolutely the best place to eat and stay. Thank you

Chill, rustic getaway with great restaurant staff
We found what we were looking for in Danta Teresa, chill, rustic, very laid back. The restaurant staff was wonderful. The qfood was good. The beach is rocky at El Tropico Latino, but a 15 minute beach walk takes you to a beautiful, sandy beach with surf instructors, and more people. This is near the part of Satnta Teresa that has shopping, and more restaurants. We loved the chill vibe at El Tropico Latino.

A little piece of tropical heaven
I loved it. It is a perfect location for surfing as you can walk left or right out of Hotel onto the beach and choose your the peak that suits you. Yoga classes are held daily for the non surfers of the party. Day beds and hammocks are on the beach for relaxing and watching the sunset. The garden had some pretty impressive iguanas wandering about. We didn’t see much other wildlife around apart from a few birds, but the gardens were really pretty with bright splashed if colour. The staff were really friendly and helpful without being pushy in any way. If you go in or just after the rainy season use the north route as the rivers flood the roads on the coastal road making it impassable in places. I would definately return. The hotel is probably not for the budget traveller as the restaurant is certainly worth eating at but may be a bit expensive for those travelling on a budget

Great location
Great location in the heart of Santa Teresa. The site includes a great pool and beach area as well as restaurant and yoga area overlooking the beach. We stayed in a garden suit. The rooms are simple but have everything you need.
