WHY PLAYA HERMOSA? Hermosa means Beautiful and Playa means Beach. Playa Hermosa is beautiful and aptly named! It’s a long and wide, beautiful beach that boasts beautiful sunsets and waves that are framed by lush palm trees.

The home is situated in a safe, gated community. The community is beachfront on one of the most known surf beaches in the world. While the town of Hermosa is relaxed and pura vida, with it's surfer vibe, the location is only a 15 minutes drive to Jaco. In Jaco you can find anything you need or want from a vibrant night life to boutique shops, restaurants, grocery stores, drugstores and more.
Another great day trip is Manuel Antonio, one of Costa Rica's most beautiful state parks. Only an hour drive from Hermosa, here you will see three white-sand beaches and swear that each one is more beautiful than the one you saw before. Take a hike or a guided tour through this National Park and see monkeys, birds, frogs and more.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Hermosa: the view, the ocean, the beach, the amazing nature and...only 1.5 hours from San Jose made Playa Hermosa the best escape and hideaway from city`s noise and pollution. Jaco only 15 minutes away, makes easy the last minutes shopping (for those who decide to cook instead of going to a restaurant). 25 minutes away from Marriott Los Suenos and its first class golf course and marina. One hour from Manuel Antonio most visited National Park.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Hermosa Palms is located on only 5% of costarican titled beachfront lots. This makes House 96 a very unique place to relax. There is hardly any resort so close to the beach. Hard to find a place so close to San Jose national airport, main golf course and marina, Jaco's night life. Playa Hermosa held the 2009 Billabong international surf competition.
