              Manager info

              About: My husband and I love our little Villa and have had amazing experiences there over the years. We never get tired of visiting our Villa in Costa Rica as it is the perfect combination of relaxation, unique experiences, fun, and adventure. We know that you will enjoy it as well.

              Why Playa Hermosa:
              Our villa is located in a safe and secure area that is quiet and relaxing and at the same time has lots to offer. It is quaint and gives you the real flavour of Costa Rica, and we prefer this to a big chain or commercialized property. We love the stunning view, which is a short walk or Carito ride (these travel the resort daily and are free) to one of the most beautiful beaches in the area.

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              Safe and secure, unique Costa Rican flavour versus a large chain resort, comfortable surroundings, stunning views, lots to do in the resort and nearby, a short walk or ride (transportation runs regularly to take you around the resort) to the beach, amazing beach massages, and nice people.
