Stephanie & Jim from Hotel Casa MarBella
One of our, my husband and I, favorite towns in Costa Rica is Santa Teresa, which is located on the Nicoya Penninsula, about four hours South of Tamarindo. Its a remote location, with eclectic restaurants and fun people. Every time we go there, we stay at a different place, but I believe we’ve found our spot, Hotel Casa MarBella. Its a boutique hotel, with zen-like decor, a view that can’t be beat, and an infinity pool. Its about a four minute walk to the beach, within a half of a mile of about a dozen restaurants and right next door is an amazing one. I enjoyed it so much, I had to have Stephanie and Jim (and daughter, Naia) be the interviewees of this weeks “WQS”!
