Mint Santa Teresa

Mint is designed by Costa Rican architects at Studio Saxe and filled with hand picked 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 6 years in this beautiful town and love to share our personal favorites among restaurants, excursions and beaches.

Mint Santa Teresa Team

Mint is an adults only boutique hotel in one of the most magical places on earth, Santa Teresa Costa Rica.

The 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. They are all furnished with locally sourced wooden furniture and art from Costa Rican artists. The difference between the 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.

Mint is located about 500 meters up from the beach. You can easily walk to the beach but the way back will be a bit sweaty.

Santa Teresa as a town doesn’t have a center but rather everything is spread out along a road next to the ocean. Mint is located about 10 minutes walk from a lot of popular restaurants such as Koji’s, Katana, Drift Bar and Banana Beach.

Breakfast is served 8am-10am down in the lounge area where all the guests eat together at a communal table. The breakfast is served buffet style and includes freshly baked bread and toppings, tropical fruits with yoghurt and homemade granola plus Mint’s famous banana bread and all the coconuts and coffee you can drink.

Santa Teresa is famous for its’ consistent surf, amazing yoga and beautiful beaches but you can also go horseback riding on a huge private farm or the beach, try your luck fishing, zip line through the jungle, rent an ATV and drive on dirt roads to nearby waterfalls and much more. If you’d like to reserve any lessons, tours or rentals you can do this directly with the team at Mint.
