The beautiful Playa Hermosa located in Guanacaste is just 20-25 minutes from the Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia. One of the best maintained beaches in the country, Playa Hermosa, offers visitors crystal clear blue waters and gorgeous scenery, making it a very popular beach strip on the west coast. Hermosa, which means "beautiful" in Spanish, is an aptly named gray-sand beach that perches between two mountains. In fact there are two Playa Hermosas, the other being in the Central Pacific Coast near Jaco. Guanacaste's Playa Hermosa is situated between Playa del Coco and Playa Panama, Hermosa is seldom as crowded as its neighbors. It is a fabulous getaway for those seeking quality relaxation. Most visitors bring a blanket and sunscreen to soak up Guanacaste's burning sun, and due to its calm surf, Hermosa is a favorite for swimmers. To my delight, Guanacaste has its own Blue Zone the Nicoya Peninsula!
The villa located on a hill of "Hermosa Heights" community, offering an amazing view without forgetting gorgeous sunsets. This is a lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house conveniently located in 10 minutes driving from Coco beach and 20-25 minutes driving from airport Liberia. The property located in approximately twelve, fifteen minutes walk by normal pace from one of the most beautiful and quiet beaches of Costa Rica surrounded by rich vegetation.
There two ways to reach the beach by walking distance , the right turn from the community to the beach is longer, passing "Liperon" store & then passing across a narrow road. The turn to the left side from community is shorter, this way passing also across a road passing by the bar- restaurant & pizzeria "Bocelli".
In hot the weather in a day time I would recommend use bikes or car to reach beach, will take 3 minutes. In a hot time of the day best way to wear a hat and sunglasses!
Costa Ricas reputation as a tropical paradise precedes it and with sun, sea, and surf, its notoriety is well deserved. Though just the size of West Virginia, this country boasts a wide range of different climates, so there really is something for everyone.
The rainforests of the southern Pacific coast are warm and humid, with heavy , short rains (usually after noon & sometimes at night) in the rainy bloom season. But many expats live in homes set on the hillsides overlooking the vast green jungles and glittering ocean. At elevation, the weather is cooler than at sea level and benefits from cooling ocean and mountain breezes. Some expats here actually dont use much air conditioning if their home was built to take advantage of these breezes.
Outside the house adorned by lush garden leading to the patio and dreamy infinity ocean view from private pool. Comfortably furnished patio creating a cozy atmosphere for relaxing evenings in a beauty of enchanting nature. Inside the villa is decorated in warm colors of calm and serenity. It is perfect for couples & families or group of friends who wishes to stay in a serene place. Down below the community a large pool with two slides have a fun for adult and kids. And a good size private pool where you will relax with your family and watch beautiful sunsets.
Perfect for swimming and scuba diving, Playa Hermosa offers amazing diving safaris and snorkeling opportunities for those who enjoy being out in the sea. With some of the best scuba diving in the country, you can also have great fun renting out kayaks, sailboards, windsurfing equipment, canoes, jet skis and water bikes from the many shops that line the beach.
This inviting villa offers 1 Master bedroom with a suite bathroom and 2 other bedrooms sharing a second bathroom. The garden plants around the house provide additional privacy from the neighboring houses. Beautifully barred windows allow you to enjoy the fresh breeze and feel very safe with open windows at night time. Each room has an air conditioner and fans for guests who prefer a fresh air. The parking space in a seconds walk from the house.
Enjoy the peacefulness of this property, close your eyes and let yourself swept away by the song of the waves breaking on the beach..

Some interesting facts about Guanacaste..
In the Northwest of the country is the province of Guanacaste. In the province are the best beaches in Costa Rica , but not all the attractions of this area of the country associated with the blue and warm ocean and sandy beaches. There are also plenty of pristine rivers, volcanoes and important protected areas , such as the National Park Santa Rosa which is home to 10 different habitats, including mangroves , swamps and evergreen and dry forests . Another National Park volcano Rincon de la Vieja is a haven for many species of birds and wild animals , impressive lush , boiling mud geysers , refreshing rivers and waterfalls .
In Guanacaste very advantageous geographical position - despite the tropical climate , the rains here are rare, even in the rainy season , but the sun shines in the province and constantly maintains a temperature not lower than 23 degrees Celsius.
You can visit other places of interest , such as Monteverde and La Fortuna, with an impressive active volcano Arenal . In both places , you will find a wide selection of tours , including tours under the dome of the jungle , horseback riding, bird watching and hiking.
Received its name from the name of the province of Guanacaste tree ( enterolobium krugloplodny ), which grows everywhere and is one of the national symbols of Costa Rica.

My husband and I (in our 40\'s) spent an enjoyable week in this villa the week before Semana Santa. The condo complex and Playa Hermosa weren\'t too crowded and we had fun exploring other beaches in the area (Playa Buena is good if you don\'t like waves as it\'s in the Gulf of Papagayo). We had an excellent meal at Roberto\'s one evening and also visited the Hidden Art Gallery (out near the airport) and went as far south as Tamarindo. Playa del Coco has many shops if you\'re unable to find what you want at the market in Playa Hermosa (the Luperon; we found this to carry everything we wanted but fresh fish). The villa had everything we needed and was as depicted in the ad. Tim and Edgar from Beachfront had let us know they were available if we had any issues, but there was no reason to contact them. This villa is good for viewing birds - we saw parrots, buk buks (sic) and a bird resembling a blue jay. We did see monkeys but not as many as in other parts of CR. The pool was refreshing and offered a spectacular view of the ocean. We would recommend this property if you want to sightsee in the local area. Our last evening (March 19) was the Saturday prior to Semana Santa and the noise did pick up a bit (music from Playa Hermosa).
as advertised the views from the property are amazing and the pool is incredible... home was the perfect size for all of us (7) 4 adults- 3 children, the whole hermosa complex is wonderful, we enjoyed the basket-ball court, the cinema, and the complex pool (even do, the slides did not work all the time), also in other note they really stress security, is always some one at the front gate and security did several round a day..we walked several times to the beach (really is a short walk) and to the grocery (well stacked) store, we ate most of the times at the local\'s (soda\'s) restaurant, the locals are really sociable and friendly... definitely we\'ll be back soon, Marina once again, many thanks to let us share your piece of heaven.. atte: Gus, as the locals said \"PURA VIDA\"
Marina\'s house was just as beautiful as the pictures suggested. It was a great location to explore Playa Hermosa, the nearby beaches and nearby national parks. We travelled with our three kids (ages 6, 6 and 8). It was great being able to spread out between the three bedrooms. The top bunk had a low profile rail, so we didn\'t end up using it. I think it would be good for an older child, but we decided not to use it to avoid falls in the middle of the night. One nice surprise, was that our private pool was skimmed of bugs daily by the staff. We spent a lot of time enjoying the views from the private pool. It was the perfect size for our young kids. It\'s about 3 feet at one end, sloping to about 5 feet at the other end. The slides, fountains and bar at the community pool were not operating during the weeknights. I don\'t know what the normal opening hours are, but we were expecting it to be operating daily. We did find a very kind security guard who turned the slides, lights and fountain on for us.
The condo was perfect for our family of 5. Everything in regards to the place is as described. It is very clean and well equipped. The location is close to the beach. We walked to meet our fishing guide there. The surrounding restaurants are so delightful. I will say, it is on a steep hill, so if you\'re walking, it\'s a little cumbersome. BUT it is well worth it because the view from the pool is GORGEOUS! We also loved that a store was around the corner to pick up food and essentials we forgot. I highly recommend this condo. Marina was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive.
We spent 8 days in this beautiful house for our honeymoon! We couldn\'t have picked a better place to start our new marriage and make lasting memories. The pictures of this house do not do the view justice. Everyone at Hermosa Heights was friendly and helpful. From the time we arrived, daily check ins, even checked on our saftey as the first hurricane in over 100 years was heading our way and mAde certain we arrived to the airport on time the next day. The house is pretty centrally located to several very good restaurants , grocery store, beach and even a on site movie theater. My husband and I chose to take tours with Mardigi Tours (which I would highly recommend) for each tour we chose to do, they were promptly waiting at our door to pick us up for the daily adventure. We took private drivers to other places we wanted to explore. We did not want to hassle with renting a car and this method seemed to work well for us. We walked to a lot of our destinations in playa hermosa which was very enjoyable (except for the steep hill on the way back to the house ;-) ) I would highly recommend this house to any of my family and friends and I look forward to staying here again on our next trip to Costa Rica!
