Getting Around

Exploring Santa Teresa on Foot

It's not easy to explore Santa Teresa without a vehicle, renting a car or ATV to get around is recommended. You can reach the beach, the grocery store and a few cafes/restaurants on foot, but this can become uncomfortable during the hot season.

Uber & Taxis

Uber is not available, but there are taxis available upon request. Upon arrival at Outsite, ask taxi drivers to take you all the way to the house at the top of the hill.

Car & ATV Rental

For car or ATV rental you can contact the Community Manager on WhatsApp, and he can have a rental delivered to you at the house.
