A newly opened adults only boutique hotel in one of the most magical places on earth, Santa Teresa Costa Rica. The space is designed by Costa Rican architects at Studio Saxe and filled with locally sourced furniture and design details. With only four rooms your stay at Mint will have you feeling like you are part of a little community, with other travelers and locals. We, Jonas and Johanna - owners and 'do it alls' of Mint, have spent 5 years in this beautiful town and love to share our personal favorites among restaurants, excursions and beaches.


Our four rooms are scattered across a hill overlooking the Pacific ocean All of the rooms have a king-size bed, air conditioning, ocean view and a private rooftop terrace. The difference between our Double Rooms and Deluxe Double Rooms is the location on the property, where the latter are located higher up and therefore have a better view and more privacy.

We love to relax, take a nap in a hammock or read a book but if you want a more active vacation Santa Teresa has a lot to offer! These are our top three activities in the area. Sounds interesting? Just let us know when you book and we can set everything up for you.

Try Surfing

Santa Teresa is known to have some of the most consistent surf brakes in Costa Rica. There are always waves here and you can find something fun and chalenging to surf no matter your skill level. If you need a lesson let us know and we will guide you in the right direction! We only work with licensed surf instructors with good knowledge of the local beaches as well as ocean safety.



Horseback riding

Ario Tours offers horseback riding through their private family farm in Manzanillo, about 5 km north of Santa Teresa. You will be guided by a cowboy as well as a multilingual biologist that can tell you everything you want to know about the nature in the area and the animals living here. If you are looking for an experience out of the ordinary they also offer private tours and special packages.


Go fishing

Leave the harbor in Malpais and go south towards the natural reserve Cabo Blanco, then take a tour around empty islands, see dolphins and maybe catch a fish or five. The waters outside our coast is filled with different kinds of tuna, mahi mahi and redsnapper. Leave early in the morning to see the sun rise or in the afternoon to watch the sunset either way it will be an amazing expereince!
