    Traveling While Black

    I have been wanting to go to Costa Rica for quite some time now, primarily because of its vast eco-tourism and culture. I settled on Santa Teresa because my friend wanted to go there for her birthday. Though beautiful, it wasn’t as I expected as a whole so I will give a general overview of the area.
    We flew into Liberia Airport which was ok and took a flight to Tambor which was about $100 with Sansa Airlines. Note well that the baggage allowance for Sansa is 30lbs and you will be charged for any additional weight. When heading to the plane it was immediately apparent why we had to pay the extra cost, as it was a tiny 12 seater plane. Personally not my favorite way to fly but we got their safely and the views landing in Tambor were lovely, well whenever I was able to open my eyes.
    We rented a car for the week from Tambor and went on our journey to Santa Teresa. Having driven in quite a few countries, this part of Costa Rica took top honors for the worst road conditions I have ever encountered, with mainly dirt and unpaved roads, but we made it. There may be extra pressure to rent a ATV or even a dirt bike, but hands down our best decision was to get a car so we could travel around easier and not get a full facial of dirt on every ride. We spent approximately $200 for the weekly rental and used my travel credit card insurance but that came with a $5000 hold on my account since the insurance didn’t come from the car rental company. :o
    We stayed at Los Almendros, a Cala Luxury Property and was approximately $250 a night. It was a lovely relaxing space but very basic space. A bed, A/C, wi-fi, an outdoor bathroom, which was the only one. This can be a bit awkward being exposed to nature but we travel for unique experiences.
    Santa Teresa is definitely a surfer, yoga, hipster, bohemian place, with few locals and several South Americans (mainly from Argentina) and personally I believe lacking Costa Rican culture. Restaurants pricing seemed to be closer in line with that of a major city with breakfast and lunch averaging about $25-$50 for two and closer to $100 for dinner. The options, while good, were more trendy than local. At one local for dinner we had samosas, dumplings, spring rolls, thai curry and pasta.
    We had the opportunity to do a couple of activities. Surf lesson $70 per person for an hour. Horseback riding through the jungle $65 for 2 hours. Massages $70-$110 for an hour at your accommodation.
    So by all accounts you can have a great vacation in Santa Teresa but nothing that is specifically Costa Rican, with the exception of the wildlife and scenery.
