  • Great Place to Stay!

    "Had a great, relaxing and wonderful stay for 2 weeks at this well maintained, clean and beautiful villa. We did not have a car but Carlos who manages Noreen's place arranged transportation from and to the airport. He also arranged transportation and golfing for my husband to be able to play. This place has absolutely everything you could possibly need to make your stay so enjoyable. What a view of the Ocean from the deck! The grocery store, beach and a few great restaurants are withing walking distance. Jonathan, the General Manager at Ginger's arranged free transportation to and from the restaurant. Good food! Bocelli's has excellent wood fired pizza. We also went there for dinner another night and had pasta. Very good. Fishing if you like that is excellent. We went there one day and caught tons of red snapper and my husband caught a 50 lb. Amberjack. So we did cook a few days at the villa. This place has everything from minature golf, a movie theatre with up to date movies and also other plays etc. There is always something going on there. The pool is great along with the breakfast and lunch that is available there. There is also a new sports bar that opens at 5 p.m. with great chicken wings among other items to order, music and special events there also. I actually did not want to leave! Thank you Noreen for a wonderful vacation. We actually are thinking about going back next year."

  • Wonderful vacation spot

    "This guesthouse was perfect for our 9 days in Costa Rica. Nan and Paul (the owners) are right next door and provided us with information on trips, restaurants and activities. Nan and Paul are also wonderful trustworthy people who really care about their guests. The guesthouse is clean, spacious and a perfect location to sit outside in the mornings and listen to (and see) birds, monkeys and sounds of the jungle. We felt right at home. We would suggest renting a car because this location is a great jumping off point to other "playas," towns, hikes and adventures (which Nan and Paul will help you choose). We rented from POAS and they delivered the car to us for no extra charge (and they are right across the street from the airport for the trip back). Kayaking, walking on the beach, good restaurants, and swimming in the ocean are all right there. We visited Playa Panama, Tamarindo, Guaticil, Arenal and had great experiences at each. We would recommend Roberto's (Playa Hermosa), Mangrove (Playa Panama) and Father Roosters as great restaurants - all on the beaches. We wouldn't have found them without Nan and Paul. Can't say enough about the wonderful experiences we had that were launched from this guesthouse. Be sure to go. Our only regret is that we didn't stay long enough, another 4 or 5 days would have been even more perfect. We would highly recommend this guesthouse and Nan and Paul as owners."

  • Slice of Heaven!

    "Wow! What an amazing girls trip in Playa Hermosa! The views from every inch of this beautiful villa were breathtaking. The owners were so prompt and generous with suggestions and information about their favorite sights, restaurants, tours, beaches, etc. Laura at Milargro was like a family to us! She provided us "Beck and Call" service beyond any rental company that I have dealt with. I have rented over 50 homes all over the world through VRBO and this home was spectacular for our party of 4 ladies! We each had our own bedroom and tons of space to spread out, relax and spend sunsets out by the pool or the rooftop terrace. Bernal and Lilliana at Tico Tours provided private tours for us with amazing guides. We had so much fun with all of them at Tico. It was all first class- the restaurants, the volcano tours, natural steaming mud baths, private massages at the villa, chef services from Rocio, great diving, day trip to Nicaragua, Palo Verde National Park and river tour, Miravalles Waterfalls, etc. We saw 3 types of monkeys, countless species of birds, iguanas everywhere, baby crocodiles, etc. We cannot wait to return! Pura Vida!"

  • "Best Vacation Ever!"

    "Summed up by our 6 year-old, "Best vacation ever!" This was our first trip to Costa Rica and the owner and property manager made sure we felt right at home. The location permits you to do as much or as little as you like. Playa Hermosa is idyllic. An uncrowded paradise just 25 minutes from the airport, the beach was calm and perfect for swimming. The pool was steps away from the patio. We could sit under the fans with a cool drink while our daughter swam and played just steps away by the pool. The condo itself was beautifully decorated, with high-end finishes, a well-equipped kitchen, high-speed internet and plenty of beach towels. We awoke to the sound of waves. What more could you ask for? There are several excellent dining choices a short walk down the beach. My daughter loved the food and beachy atmosphere of Aquasport. I was partial to La Casita del Marisca (get the Snapper VaraCruz style.) We were pleased to see (and frequently hear) howler monkeys right from the condo. We adopted an iguana, though we left it behind for fear of what U.S.customs might think. We were picked up right off the beach for a snorkeling trip with Captain Alphonso. A few days later, we were picked up again, this time by his brother and nephew, for a sensational half day of fishing. We took a river cruise to see monkeys, crocodiles, jesus lizards, bats, iguana and myriad other animals. We zip-lined over canyons and waterfalls. We sat by the pool with ice-cold Imperial's. We did exactly as we liked, and we were never far from Playa Hermosa. I would recommend this property and location highly. We will definitely go back - there is so much to do!"

Playa Hermosa Travel Tips

Picture Perfect Vacations in Playa Hermosa Beach Rentals

For anyone looking for a small beach town vacation in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica, Playa Hermosa beach rentals will be perfect! Situated along the northwest coast of the country, Playa Hermosa resorts offer plenty of fun in the sun and surf. Located just 25 minutes from the Liberia International Airport, planning vacations in Costa Rica has never been easier when you choose Playa Hermosa as your destination!

Playa Hermosa Resorts Offer Quiet Serenity

In Spanish, “hermosa” means “beautiful” so the town is aptly named. Playa Hermosa beach rentals line the gray sanded beaches and are situated between two spectacular mountains. Surrounded by the more populated beaches of Playa del Coco and Playa Panama, Playa Hermosa resorts offer privacy and lots of quiet relaxation. The water even reflects this as the waves here are much more serene than surrounding areas, making Playa Hermosa ideal for swimming and splashing rather than surfing and sporting.

National Parks Are a Must-see During Vacations in Costa Rica

You simply cannot plan vacations in Costa Rica without a visit to some of the many national parks in the country. In fact, quite a few are located rather close to many Playa Hermosa beach rentals so the trip will not be difficult. Rincon de la Vieja National Park, Santa Rosa National Park, and Palo Verde National Park are all worth a visit. If you want to view local wildlife (monkeys, jaguars, tropical birds, and more) up close and personal, this is your chance!

Laid-back Vacations in Playa Hermosa Beach Rentals

The atmosphere surrounding Playa Hermosa resorts is very laid-back. And that is what vacations in Costa Rica should be--ultimately relaxing. The country offers the opportunity to escape it all in a lush, tropical setting surrounded by oceans, beaches, and mountains. A trip to Playa Hermosa will cleanse the mind, body, and soul, making you ready for anything when you return home!
