My wife and I stayed for two weeks at Tina and John’s wonderful house at Playa Hermosa. The location itself is great—an easy drive from San Jose airport, about 90 minutes, and the gated oceanfront community is a very peaceful, low-key, and beautiful resort-style area, right on the warm Pacific, with its unbelievable sunsets and world-class surfing. The house is fantastic—everything you could want, including washer/dryer, wifi, full kitchen, three bedrooms, sitting rooms, great A/C, garage, gas grill, outdoor Jacuzzi, and great, attentive staff members. The house is so spacious that we were able to have another couple join us for our second week
Playa Hermosa is a short 10 minute drive from the small town of Jaco, where we went everyday to buy our groceries, fresh fruit, produce, and incredible fresh fish. Jaco has a combination of American-style restaurants and plenty of great local places to eat and shop. The house is close to plenty of nice day-trips, like sailing at Herradura, hiking at Manuel Antonio national park, or visiting the most amazing sunset overlook at Villa Caletas.
Just leave plenty of time to relax and enjoy. We are already planning our next trip!
