Playa Hermosa is a small beach town known worldwide for its surfing, especially after it hosted the world surf championship a few years back. Saturday afternoons many surfers and surf fans do fight for parking spots in the afternoon to witness world-class surfing at the Saturday afternoon weekly surf meets hosted by the Backyard Hotel. Small restaurants, surf shops and other retail are located on the beach which is a 20 min walk or a 2 minute car ride. A yoga center is within 300 meter walking distance. Surf lessons, Zipline booking, horseback riding and other activities can be also booked in the office. Due to the towns location near virgin tropical mountains, you will likely see Scalet macaws on a daily basis. Iguanas roam around the trees, roof and all over the property.
The property is located 1.5 hours from San Jose and 10 minutes away from the town of Jaco, where you will find ATMs, nightlife, restaurants, supermarkets and all sorts of retail. Costa Rica is notorious for bad roads and bad signage. For most flexibility, it is recommended you hire a 4x4 with low mileage and either bring or rent a GPS. If you plan to party at night, taxis can easily be hired for pick up and will be available in town for drop off. The hotel offers free shuttle service to the beach and restaurants at the Hermosa beach. For a nominal charge, when the shuttle is available, we can offer rides to Jaco.
Pool Hours 8 am to 8 pm
