Zunya is located in Malpais, Costa Rica, a 5-minute drive from Santa Teresa, and at the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. This area is known as a surfer's paradise because of its rolling coastline, white sand beaches, and notoriously ‘hollow’ low tide waves. A hidden gem, Malpais attracts surfers of different levels of expertise. Here, beginners, intermediates, and advanced surfers alike can find a perfect breaking wave that caters to their level of experience.
Our food philosophy at Nula, Zūnya's kitchen, is centered around a plant based lifestyle by inviting others to live a more conscious and healthy lifestyle, and presenting new ways of treating our planet and our body. All this while creating delicious and beautiful dishes. Nula is a sacred place for people to go and feel inspired about a meal; it is also a home for those who love Mother Nature and are deeply interested in caring for and protecting her. It's about feeling nourished, loving, and caring for yourself and others. Neighborhood farmers markets are the inspiration behind each plate and local gardens can bring something collectively to the table. We enjoy all of our meals family-style in the open-air dining area. We include healthy breakfast, plus snacks and brunch daily as well as a special closing dinner. You will surely head home feeling happy and healthy!

Zūnya is hidden away from prying eyes in the town of Malpais, a secluded spot on the southern tip of the Peninsula of Nicoya, the region is one of only five blue zones in the world. Malpais prides itself on its amazing surf and for its decadent mix of unspoiled beaches, private coves, waterfalls, and dense rainforests. The town of Malpais is the perfect hideaway, for those looking to discover an authentic Costa Rica.
