Santa Teresa Beach is located in the middle of two small villages, Mal Pais in the south and Playa Hermosa in the north. They connect with each other by one, long winding road, just behind the beach.

When visitors say they love Santa Teresa Beach, they really also talk about Mal Pais, Playa Hermosa, and Playa Carmen. That’s because it’s hard to tell when one stops and the other starts.

Santa Teresa is a great location to get away from the noise, go for long walks at the beach, practice yoga, and surf, and it’s a short drive away from Playa Hermosa and Playa Carmen.
