About this property

Beachfront Bed and Breakfast
Hotel Casa Cecilia, the first truly beachfront B&B in Playa Santa Teresa, is situated front and center to some of the most consistent surf on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.  We provide our guests with a relaxed, yet intimate atmosphere that is ideal for single surf travelers, couples or groups who desire comfortable, clean, affordable and hassle-free beachfront accommodations that are literally steps from the best waves in the area. 

Beach and Surfing
The sparkling white sands of Playa Santa Teresa are fringed with lush tropical foliage, providing a backdrop without compare.  And our beach break right out front offers consistent chest to head-high surf year round, with regular overhead swells to keep things interesting and challenging. Additionally, one of the area’s most consistent and challenging reef/points – Roca Mar, is located less than one hundred meters from our doorstep!  There are also a plethora of nearby beach breaks, reefs and reef/points that offer a variety and consistency of surf not to be found elsewhere on this coast. 

Our unique architecture offers four comfortable beachfront rooms downstairs and a suite upstairs.  For your comfort, all of our accommodations offer orthopedic mattresses, a/c, ceiling fans, private bathrooms with solar-heated hot water, and mini fridges.  We also have a private villa adjacent to the hotel that offers a fully equipped kitchen and outdoor gas bbq.  All of our rates include a daily full breakfast and daily maid service. Depending upon sleeping arrangements, we can accommodate 10-16 guests. With our casual beachfront lounge, Casa Cecilia is especially ideal for family and group surf vacations. We look forward to surfing with you soon!

This property is located near Playa Santa Teresa. A 2km stretch of some of the most consistent beachbreak on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. The beach's Southeast/Northwest orientation makes it ideally exposed to swell angles from below 195 to over 220 degrees; although it breaks best with SSW combo swells. While ostensibly a sandbar beach break, the unique bottom configuration of sand over rock reef gives form to the consistently breaking peaks for which Santa Teresa is famous. These well-groomed sandbars offer peaky, punchy rights and lefts that are just plain fun when it is under head high. But the game changes once the swell goes overhead, offering up juicy outside walls that connect into grinding inside barrels.

This property is also located near Roca Mar/Suck Rock. A grindy, challenging right hand reef break located at the West end of Playa Santa Teresa. It is also known as "Suck Rock," because the wave jacks up out of deep water, doubling up over a dry reef as it peels across into deeper water. Deep, spitting tubes are the reward for skirting the "Dreaded Spine."

This property is also located near Mim's. Mim's (or Back Reef) - just 200 meters around the corner from Roca Mar is this deepwater right-hander that begins to show her stuff at double overhead and above, offering steep take-offs and long, winding walls. When all the stars are in proper alignment, this powerful reef wave can connect all the way through the bowl at Roca Mar, dropping you off breathless and stoked in the shorebreak past Casa Cecilia!

This property is also located near Playa Hermosa. Not to be confused with other beaches of the same name, this "beautiful beach" has a wide, smooth, flat sand bottom that makes it ideal for surf lessons and beginners - on the inside. It also offers up fun, if inconsistent beach break on the outside for those lucky enough to be there when it happens! Bring the family and make a day of it - and don't forget to check out the tide pools on either side of the beach!
