Dime con quién andas, y te diré quién eres:


Santa Teresa, Costa Rica


A quiet and remote coastal fishing village now a tourist driven economy known for its surfing, cuisine and yoga retreats, Santa Teresa is unique for providing a down to earth and local experience. Outside of tourist attractions, the best way to experience a place is through the inhabitants. In this instance, Santa Teresa lives up to the well known Costa Rican saying Pura Vida; it is an optimistic attitude and genuine happiness that excludes from every interaction. This series documents the village, its vibrant and hospitable people and highlights time well spent around the students of Hermosa Valley School.
