Make a Holiday Rental Villa in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica, Your Home Away From Home

The resort known as Playa Hermosa is located on the coast of Costa Rica, in Central America, in the region known as Puntarenas. This is very close to the town of Jaco and it is also a conveniently short drive away from the national capital of San Jose. Holidays in Playa Hermosa are perfect for people who are keen on the sport of surfing. There are ample facilities here for people of all levels of experience and the waves are great, too. One word of caution in this regard, however, as some of the beaches in this part of the world are only suitable for very experienced surfers – there are suitable beaches for amateurs, though. If you are interested in experiencing the laid-back way of life in Costa Rica for yourself, you should definitely consider hiring self catering accommodation in Playa Hermosa.

Things to Do on Holiday in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica

As we have already established, holidays in Playa Hermosa are ideal for people who are keen on the sport of surfing – in fact, The Quiksilver Surf Championships are held in this very area every year in August.

These include the likes of swimming (at certain beaches in the area), beach volleyball, snorkelling, deep-sea diving, fishing, coastal walks, tennis, horse riding and jogging. Bearing in mind how lush and forested Costa Rica is, you may well like to enjoy a hiking trek, however, do ascertain the details for the best and safest routes beforehand.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica

Many people tend to take their holidays in Playa Hermosa for the sheer tranquillity of the area, but when you do decide it is time to go off and do some sightseeing, there are a number of suggestions for you. These include the fascinating and historic capital of San Jose, which boasts numerous museums and other equally interesting tourist attractions. Of course, when in Costa Rica, you really should do all you can to experience the unique beauty of its natural habitats and one way to do this is by travelling the country’s most famous national park: known as Manuel Antonio National Park. There is another park even closer to Playa Hermosa that you might like to think about and this is called The Playa Hermosa Wildlife Refuge.

Weather in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica

Visitors on their holidays in Playa Hermosa can look forward to a tropical rainforest climate. This means that it remain warm throughout the whole year, however, you should also expect some very heavy downpours at any time. The average temperatures will hardly deviate from between 26 and 28 degrees Celsius during the day, and these will only drop to between 18 and 19 degrees at night. Waterproof clothing should most certainly be packed in your suitcase as this part of the world receives around 80 inches of rainfall per year.

Travel to Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica

We had four adult couples and each of us enjoyed our own "master" suites where we could have privacy as desired. And tons of space in the common areas for fun as a group. We also enjoyed meeting Trey, the property manager. He provided us with a lot of local areas/restaurants to visit and was quick to resolve any small issue we may have experienced. Also Denayda was quite pleasant as the housekeeper.
