Kick back or adventure at Playa Hermosa

Playa Hermosa epitomizes the laidback nature of Costa Rica. Though there have been some recent developments along the coast, it's still managed to retain its seaside charm. Days here can be as quiet and peaceful or as action-packed as you want them to be. While away your time on the stretch of white sand, perhaps with an exotic cocktail and a good book, or hop on all-guns-blazing activities where you can zip-line through the canopies, power across the water on jet skis, or gallop along the equestrian trails on horseback. So, what are you waiting for? Your Playa Hermosa vacation rentals await.

Outdoor fun at Playa Hermosa

It might be hard to tear yourself away from the beach, but when you stay in a Playa Hermosa vacation rental, you've got a smorgasbord of outdoor activities to get the heart pumping. The rocky coastline trails and backroads lend themselves to hurtling ATV quad bike rides, while the surrounding treetops are used for zip-lines which pass colorful toucans and noisy howler monkeys. If you're bringing the kids, or you're a big kid yourself, you shouldn't pass up a banana boat ride, though prepare to get wet. Out on the water, you can take a tranquil sail, keeping your eyes peeled for jumping dolphins.

A day of pampering at Playa Hermosa

You're not going to find much in the way of historical attractions around your Playa Hermosa vacation rental. Costa Rica is more about its wildlife and achingly beautiful surroundings. Fear not. Even if full-throttle adventure or lazy days on the beach aren't your thing, it's hard to be bored around these parts. If you hop into one of the nearby luxury resorts, you'll find spas where you can spend an afternoon pampering yourself with mud masks and deep-tissue massages. Alternatively, take a day trip to the hot springs in Arenal to soak away in the beautiful foothills of the volcano.

Kick the winter blues in Playa Hermosa

With such perfect weather hitting the shores of Costa Rica between December and April and dreary climes back home, it's hardly surprising that families with kids and couples looking for a romantic break pack up their things and fly on down to stay in Playa Hermosa vacation rentals. Festive season is the busiest, with vacationers swapping snow and turkeys for sunshine and seafood. That said, if you want to avoid the crowds and don't mind the odd afternoon downpour, consider booking up a rental between June and July, when there's a break in the rainy season and the temperature hits the high 80s.

Playa Hermosa is paradise for wildlife enthusiasts

When you stay in a Playa Hermosa vacation rental, you won't be far away from the Palo Verde, a national park with over 15 different ecosystems supporting an astonishing number of wildlife. You probably know already that Costa Rica is one of the top spots for wildlife watching and this is the epicenter. To give you some idea, there are more than 250 bee species. Yes, you heard that right. But that's not all. Bring your binoculars and you'll have the chance to spot some of the 140 mammals and 300 species of bird.
