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.

So glad to have discovered Las Brisas. Rachelle and John were awesome hosts. Super friendly, great communication, and were always around if I had any questions or needed recommendations. The property is as lovely as it appears in the photos. The clean outdoor pool area and the fresh, personalized breakfast every morning added to the charm of Las Brisas. I highly recommend staying here if wanting to see Jaco, Manuel Antonio, or any of the other surrounding beaches. It was a great area with many attractions within short distances if interested in day trips.
Las Brisas was a quiet, upscale place to stay. The construction and the landscaping made this place seem like a little oasis. Not far off the main road, you are able to enjoy the quiet country. John and Rachelle were welcoming and made sure we had everything that we needed. We enjoyed waking up and walking out to the pool area and having our breakfast ready within minutes of us showing our faces.
We drove to Jaco every day. It was a short drive that didn't take more than 10-15 minutes. There are plenty of beaches to choose from in this area. When we would come back from a day of enjoying CR, the bed would be made and the place tidied up. We weren't expecting this, but it was nice to come back to. The pool was a lot of fun and the water temperature was warm.
We would recommend staying here if you get a chance. It was nice to be outside of the busy city.
Rachelle and Jon were great hosts and offer very comfortable accommodations. Plus they provided a bunch of spot on recommendations for local activities and restaurants. I would definitely stay with them again.
Serene quiet mornings....free breakfast by the pool...everything extremely well kept (landscaping, pool, rooms etc...). The owners are a delight! Well informed and very knowledgable regarding places to go and things to do, Small issue with tankless water heater but I am sure that it has been taken care of by now....Thanks John and Rachelle...will definitely stay with you guys again!!!!!
Our room and the hotel area overall was clean and neat, as described. The hosts, Rachelle and John, were always friendly and helpful. I'd recommend their hotel to our friends.
