Howlers at Latitude 10


The  family of Howler monkeys that have Latitude 10 as part of their territory just had babies last week. It is amazing how fast they grow and get familiar with life up in the trees, 15 meters above the ground. By now, they already play with each other and do all kinds of crazy monkey business. Wildlife at the hotel is just outstanding!

Earth Day at Latitude 10


We love this planet and put our energy in restoring and cleaning the world from all the trash that gets to our coast and roads. This day of mother earth is not the exception for helping our beloved planet. We are planting plants and trees on the hotel grounds to keep teaching the people that change is not only possible but it is already on its way and of course to help clean the air and lower our Carbon footprint.



A sign was made for this special day for the staff to think about changing this world in a positive way.  Both the Latitude 10 staff and guests got involved in the activity and enjoyed a fun time planting plants. We love you Madre Tierra.

Local Cuisine Near Latitude 10


Near our hotel, you can find the real taste of Costa Rican food.  In Costa Rica we call these small restaurants “sodas”.  Santa Teresa is known for our amazing surfing spots and the influence of international foods from Thailand, Argentina, and Israel.  But Latitude 10 also supports places like local sodas which help strengthen our identity and support those who truly succeed in providing a genuine Pura Vida experience!

Soda Tiquicia is located like 800mts from our hotel. If you are interested in trying out our famous casado, this is the best place to taste it.

Casado: It is called casado because married women prepared this meal for their husbands to take into the fields and it became our main plate for lunch.


Good surf, wellness and romance are all available at Playa Santa Teresa’s boutique hotel, Latitude 10 Resort.

TRIP ADVISOR recently conducted a survey on the best beaches and Santa Teresa was awarded #1 in Central and South America!
Among the reasons that led travelers to choose Playa Santa Teresa, are the Surf, consistent and suitable for all types of surfers, from beginners to advanced with no dangerous currents. White sand, clear water and the sunsets were also what attracted people to our beach as well as surfing, fishing, snorkeling, kite surfing, and yoga, spa and evening activities.

Celebrating Earth Hour at Latitude 10


Last Saturday, March 31st, 2012, we celebrated Earth Hour from 8 to 9 pm. The Latitude 10 staff came together to celebrate mother earth; to have her on our thoughts and bring good energy to the world we live in and that so desperately needs our love and care.
In the morning, we did a beach cleanup with our guests and staff to keep our world healthier and cleaner, and at night we did a meditation to bring awareness to the world.  






During the beach cleanup baby turtles started coming out of their nest. How cool was to see this happening during this day in special.
