Located on the beachfront of Playa Hermosa on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, about 7km south of Jacó, Tortuga del Mar mends the original beauty of a tropical lodge with its exquisite setting right on a pristine black sand beach. Set in a tropical garden with beachfront pool, shaded yoga and lounging decks, you'll stay right at the beach and steps from Hermosa's world class surf.

The space
Your XL Studio is a spacious 275 sq.ft. unit with private bathroom. Located on the 2nd floor it is accessible via a balcony overlooking the beach, with lounge chairs to relax in and enjoy the ocean breeze.
It is equipped with A/C, WiFi access, ceiling fan and a mini-fridge, microwave oven, coffee-maker, kitchen sink and basic cups, plates, and utensils. No full kitchen, no stove or oven! One queen size bed and two twin size beds with orthopaedic matresses sleep up to 4 guests (2 adults and 2 children comfortably).
Due to the balcony access and close-by staircase, we do not recommend this unit for infants aged 1 to 4 years, we have another ground floor unit of the same size that is safer and more convenient for families with smaller children.

Playa Hermosa, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica

Playa Hermosa has the best of everything: A beautiful, deserted beach, a lush backdrop of rainforst covered hills, the clean, warm Pacific waters, consistent waves for surfing, and a quiet, laid back ambiance while tourist hub Jacó with more restaurants, night life and all services is a conveniently close but not too close 5 mile drive away. You can surf, hike into the hillside to watch birds and other wild life, stroll along the beach and enjoy the few cozy restaurants, bars and shops located in walking distance.
Some things to consider, though: The beautiful black sand gets really hot during the day time; and the beach is not really good for swimming, it has strong waves and rip currents, depending on the season. The surf in Hermosa gets hollow and powerful, best for intermediate to expert surfers. It is recommended to look for the best surf spots along the 5 mile beach and in the entire area as conditions are variable depending on tide, swell and wind conditions. Finally, Playa Hermosa is still a small beach hamlet in Costa Rica, so please do not expect perfect, fast cellphone coverage and internet access. The power cuts have become fewer, though ;)
