Playa Santa Teresa Costa Rica is a small beach town on the Nicoya Peninsula. Just north of Playa Mal Pais. But what this small town lacks in size, it makes up for in culture and individuality. What was once a small surf town is now a place full of cultures and diversity. Everyone from surfers and artists, and the rich and famous call this place home. Located around 150km east of San Jose, reachable by plane to the Tambor airport or the Puntarenas ferry. The trip is half the fun of your trip to Santa Teresa Costa Rica. Plus, it is well worth it upon arrival when you encounter the beauty and nature of this area.

The Indian subcontinent was home to the urban Indus Valley Civilisation of the 3rd millennium BCE. In the following millennium, the oldest scriptures associated with Hinduism began to be composed. Social stratification, based on caste, emerged in the first millennium BCE, and Buddhism and Jainism arose. Early political consolidations took place under the Maurya and Gupta empires; the later peninsular Middle Kingdoms influenced cultures as far as Southeast Asia. In the medieval era, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam arrived, and Sikhism emerged, all adding to the region’s diverse culture. Much of the north fell to the Delhi sultanate; the south was united under the Vijayanagara Empire. The economy expanded in the 17th century in the Mughal Empire. In the mid-18th century, the subcontinent came under British East India Company rule, and in the mid-19th under British crown rule. A nationalist movement emerged in the late 19th century, which later, under Mahatma Gandhi, was noted for nonviolent resistance and led to India’s independence in 1947.
