This trip to Santa Teresa was amazing. The place we stayed (don jon's surf lodge) had a great atmosphere, lovely people and the apartments we stayed in were ideal for our needs (beds,kitchen and hamocks). To give you an idea of an average day, you will probably wake up quite early either for a dawn surf or because of the howler monkeys about 20 metres from your room. Then you will normally have a 2 hr surf lesson in the morning (the time always changes depending on the surf conditions). The afternoon is usually free for some hammock time or another surf and ending the day with an evening yoga session which seriously helps the surfing. Never tried yoga before this trip but surprised myself by loving it. A couple of local beers before an early night as everyone is normally shattered. Haven't gone into the food side but there is a load of food options and some great eating spots. Even if not as cheap as you may hope from a Central American country, it's usually definitely worth the dinero.
