Property description

VILLA OPERA HILLS is an outstanding destination for those seeking at the comforts of a home, amid the wild, natural beauty of Costa Rica!
Location:
The villa is located just 1.5 km (1 mile) from Playa Hermosa (Hermosa Beach).
In a safe and quiet neighborhood, surrounded by nature.
Located on the Central Pacific coastline, Playa Hermosa is just ten minutes south of Jaco Beach (Playa Jacó).
Villa Opera Hills is only 1 ½ hours from Juan Santa Maria International Airport in San Jose, Costa Rica.
If you are planning to drive from the airport, the new highway will take you on an enjoyable trip with amazing views of the mountains and down to the beach. We will provide you all the directions to get to your destination. If you prefer to have someone pick-you up from the airport, just let us know! We can book one of the local private vans for you.
Attractions and activities:
Playa Hermosa is one of the most famous surfing beaches in Costa Rica, producing a world class wave.
In Playa Hermosa you can find a few small restaurants. We recommend Vista Hermosa. They have the best refreshing smoothies, and a variety of delicious meals you can enjoy while you look at the ocean!
In Jaco (15 min North) you can find pretty much everything you need. There is grocery stores, banks, Clinics, Spas, beauty salons, pharmacies, many restaurants to choose from (we recommend sushi at Tsunami, or at Arigato), casinos, juice bars (try “Mandarina´s”, it is one of our favorite!), mail office, Gyms, Bakeries, souvenir shops… etc…
Or just stay at home and enjoy a delicious cup of coffee on your private terrace, as you watch the parrots, the toucans and the macaws flying overhead. Or maybe go for a walk, or even for a swim at the waterfall just a few minutes away on the property. You might even see the white face monkeys jumping from tree to tree!
If you are looking for activities, to do during your stay at the Villa. We can provide you all the information you need.

Car: Recommended

Playa Hermosa is one of the most famous surfing beaches in Costa Rica, producing a world class wave.

It is a beautiful and quiet beach. Between the months of July and December, it also becomes one of Costa Rica´s sea turtle nesting site. Where lucky nature watchers can see these lovely beasts; coming ashore at night, to lay their eggs on secluded beaches.

We definitely recommend having a vehicle, although it is not strictly necessary. There are many places to visit and all kind of activities to do just a short drive away from our properties.

Since this a very touristic area, you can find many activities to enjoy outdoors with family and friends.

We definitely recommend the CANOPY TOUR, it´s a very cool experience to be traveling across the jungle from tree to tree !

We also recommend ATV Tours. You can choose from a couple of hours to a full day tour. You will be traveling on dirt roads in the mountains, thru little rural towns. If you prefer to be a little more adventurous, and if you have motorcycle experience. We also own COSTA RICA UNLIMITED: The best Dirt bike tour company in Costa Rica! We get riders from all over the world. In case you might be interested to join us on the best ride of your life ;-) One thing is for sure, if you choose this activity, you will enjoy some of the most amazing views around.

If you want to walk around nature and do some wildlife viewing, we recommend 'Manuel Antonio National Park' (about 45 min south), you will see all kinds of animals, and don´t forget your swim suit, there is also a amazing white sand beach, and some very good restaurants!

Horseback riding is also a very good option. Talk to our good friend Andrea, she will be happy to take you for an astonishing ride on the beach, rivers and jungle. 100% fun Guaranty !

Restaurants / drinks and others:

In Playa Hermosa you can find a few small restaurants. We recommend Vista Hermosa. They have the best refreshing smoothies, and a variety of delicious meals you can enjoy while you look at the ocean!

In Jacó (15 min North) you can find pretty much everything you need. There is grocery stores, banks, Clinics, Spas, beauty salons, pharmacies, many restaurants to choose from (we recommend sushi at Tsunami, or Arigato), casinos, juice bars (try “Mandarina´s”, it is one of our favorite!), mail office, Gyms, Bakeries, souvenir shops…

Or just stay at home and enjoy a cup of coffee on your private terrace, as you watch the parrots, the toucans and the macaws flying overhead. Or maybe go for a walk, or even for a swim at the waterfall that is just a few minutes walk away on our properties. You might even see the white face monkeys jumping from tree to tree!
