Playa Hermosa is a quiet beach town known worldwide for its surfing - it has hosted the world surf championship. Saturday afternoons surfers & surf fans fight for parking to witness world-class surfing at the weekly surf competitions, viewed from the privacy of your beach home. The property is located at the end of the town & the beginning of a natural reserve that preserves sea turtle nestling. It abuts the main highway known as La Costanera to the east, the Backyard hotel to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the west & an open cattle field to the south. Small restaurants, surf & a few small shops are located within walking distance. Due to the town's proximity to virgin rainforest, you will likely see Scarlet macaws on a daily basis. Iguanas roam freely all over the property.
Our country is notorious for bad roads & bad signage. For most flexibility, we recommend you hire a 4x4 with low mileage and either bring or rent a GPS. Waze is very handy! If you plan to party at night in Jaco, taxis can easily be hired for pick up and will be available in town for drop off. Always be careful with your belongings, as it is the case with all of Latin America.
Bring your own surfboard, rent or take surf lessons in town but be mindful of the extremely strong ocean currents. A yoga center is less than 1 km away. Local tours include bungee jumping in Jaco, sport fishing in Los Suenos Golf Resort & Marina, horseback riding through jungle trails or along the beach, hikes to waterfalls, kayaking, biking, ATV rides, canopy ziplining & whitewater rafting. On site massages can be arranged too. Other day trips include Tortuga Island, Carara National Park & Manuel Antonio National Park visits.
The property is located 1.5 hrs away from San Jose & 5 min from the bustling city of Jaco, where you find ATMs, nightlife, restaurants, supermarkets, souvenir shops & all sorts of retail.
IMPORTANT: Abundant iguanas roam the property. There is NO air conditioning - just fans in every room. Hot water only in shower heads of 2 bathrooms. There is ROAD TRAFFIC NOISE at night as the beach corner property is also next to main highway. PLEASE BRING EAR PLUGS FOR SLEEPING. The weather in tropics is hot and humid.
