Parties & social events


Selina Santa Teresa is a 4-story playground that vibes with the town’s artistic environment and culture. Here, you’ll find a thirst for life that’s all but infectious. Stay in our dormitories, private, standard, or deluxe rooms. Suites and family rooms available.


Spend your day paddleboarding, snorkeling, or checking out some amazing marine wildlife. After the sun goes down, you can find your rhythm at a local dancehall, then stay up all night dancing to the beats of international DJs.

Getting here

From the airport

From the San Jose airport, you can reserve a spot on a Selina shuttle to take you directly to Selina Santa Teresa. Alternately, you can take a taxi to the bridge of Villa Bonita in Alajuela (about 30 minutes away), where the bus to Santa Teresa passes at around 6:20AM and 2:20PM.

From another Selina

Take one of our Selina shuttles from Selina La Fortuna, Manuel Antonio or San Jose. Book a shuttle under the Explore tab.

By bus

Catch a bus from San Jose (Terminal 7-10) to Santa Teresa, about a 6 hour trip. During this ride, the bus will drop off passengers at the Puntarenas ferry dock. Hop on the ferry with your luggage. There will be another bus waiting for you in Paquera, where the ferry docks. This bus will take you right in front of Selina Santa Teresa.
