When planning a trip to Costa Rica, you have to keep in mind with whom you will be traveling. Do they mind a little adventure, a little risk taking, or would they get anxious if you had to drive at night, go through a small stream, or stop and ask directions in the middle of nowhere? Also, your friends may not mind a tiny bed, mosquito nets, and a suicide shower if the trade off is great waves right outside your door. Luckily, the Hermosa Surf Inn has none of those inconveniences and is a very convenient and comfortable place to stay.
The hotel is located on the beach of Playa Hermosa which is just south of Jaco, now only an 80 minute drive from the Juan Santamaria airport outside of San Jose. It has two spacious two bedroom suites that can sleep up to six guests with full kitchens, one on them overlooking the surf from the second floor balcony. On many days you also see scarlet macaws land in the trees on the property to enjoy the ‘almendros’. Then there are four more one bedroom studio apartments, each with their own mini-kitchens. The rooms have granite counter tops, full tile, brand new appliances, wifi, and are tastefully appointed with cozy furniture and thick mattresses that make it hard to leave the room.
There is a tiny pool to cool off in, laundry service, outdoor showers right off the beach, lawn furniture for sunbathing, private parking, and a nighttime security guard, who will even help deliver your key if you arrive late. What is most amazing is the price, a fully furnished beachfront studio for only $100 a night and a two bedroom condo with an up close view of the surf from the back window for only $200 per night.
They also offer complete surfing packages that include pickup and dropoff from any airport, three meals a day, all transportation to the surf breaks, and provide a full concierge for lessons, tours, or dining options. The owners have lived in Playa Hermosa for decades and participate in helping the local community. They understand how important it is to feel safe and comfortable while traveling and if you stay with them you will not want to leave the beauty of their accommodations.
