High Season in the Central Pacific region of Costa Rica arrives about the same time each year.. just after Christmas, thousands of tourists and local descend up on the beach town of Jaco Beach, filling the stores and shops, restaurants and bars, and the beach with people in bikinis and board shorts.
But have you ever heard about a little town called Playa Hermosa? Just 8 minutes south of the bustling busy town of Jaco is a jewel of a beach, where crystal clear ocean water, great surfing waves, and a small, quaint town with a large expat population of artists, business owners, surfers and sun gazers live. Yoga classes, fine dining, and surfing are a way of life.
In this little town sits some of the best lodging you will find in the Central Pacific: Marea Brava Hotel, with a 10-acre resort-like area that is set aside to preserving the beauty of this area, and Hermosa Waves condos, a 12-unit, high-end boutique resort hotel with unparalleled amenities and luxurious design.
We encourage you to stop and see Jaco, but don’t forget that Playa Hermosa has some of the area’s best and most treasured beaches and experiences!
