Mal Pais - Santa Teresa
Mal Pais has been ranked among the top ten most beautiful beaches in the world, and despite this accreditation, it continues to be very isolated, and remains free of large scale developments. That said, it is still equipped with a number of modern luxuries. Umi sushi offers is extremely popular with travelers and locals alike, as are the European style bakeries, and the gelato shop. Hundreds of foreigners have relocated to the Mal Pais area, many of whom surf every day.
Santa Teresa remains a wild place. Cowboys still pass through the area with their herds, and jaguars are often seen just outside of town. Dozens of stunning beaches exist in this area, and still remain outside of the typical tourist routes. Be sure to check out Playa Hermosa, Montezuma, Manzanillo, and Tambor.
If you're thinking about settling down here, ask around to find out who can be trust and be on your guard. A few have reported real estate scams in this area.
