We are El Chante Surf House, established in 2012. It had always been my dream to open a small, family and friends-style surf house; where everyone comes together to share their love for nature, surfing, and travel with new friends.

Thanks to the help from my father, who I couldn’t have done it without, El Chante was born. Being able to have my hotel in an area with year-round waves for all levels beginner to pro, surrounded by nature, waves, good food, and good vibes and to be able to represent my country, Costa Rica, it's a dream come true.

I love to share my knowledge and passion for surfing, and I can’t think of a better place to do that than Santa Teresa, where the jungle and ocean meet together to create our little paradise. El Chante, which in Costa Rican slang means your favorite spot or is also used to refer to your house, is our favorite spot. We also love to support local businesses and keep our beaches clean. We do beach clean-up projects and the town recycling program and also support the local surf community and contests.
