About Leticia Cespedes

Hola!! My name is Leticia Cespedes and I own Las Brisas Villa #2 in the village of Playa Hermosa. I grew up most of my life living in the Los Angeles County. I have two adult daughters and one granddaughter. I've been married for 40 years to my loving Costa Rican husband. We both work in Real Estate and currently are semi-retired. We visit several times a year to visit family, friends and of course Playa Hermosa for relaxation. I hope you are able to enjoy this lay back friendly beach town and the beach with many activities to do as much as I have over 20 years. Also, please contact me I like to give discounts to my guests!

Leticia Cespedes purchased this Villa in 2011

Why Leticia Cespedes chose Playa Hermosa

My husband and I have been visiting this area of Guanacaste for over 20 years with family and friends. The reasons we purchased this vacation home are for the convenience of having a home near the beach, for its peacefulness and relaxation. Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste has soft waves, warm weather and beautiful sunsets. Aside being a sleepy beach town you can still find good restaurants, bars and nice people. On the beach there are so many activities to keep you busy and have lots of fun.

What makes this Villa unique

The unique benefits that you will find is the one minute walk to the beach, the ocean view from the balcony, the saltwater pool, 24/7 security and the complimentary use of the amenities at the Condovac Resort next door.

                                                                      You are very welcome.

                                                                      I'm happy to hear that you and your family had a wonderful time at the villa. You are all welcome to return to my place in Playa Hermosa Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

                                                                      Spacious beach-side Villa: Las Brisas #2

                                                                      LYNN A.Georgetown, TX

                                                                      My family of 5 (3 school aged boys) recently stayed 4 nights at Las Brisas Villa #2. The condo is spacious, clean, quiet, and a very short walk across the street to the beach. The kitchen is great and the washer/dryer so handy on a vacation to keep packing to a minimum. We enjoyed using the swimming pool and playing in the sand and waves at the beach. As noted, the unit is well stocked with beach towels, beach mats, and beach chairs. We also added two boogie boards after our stay that future guests can use! Initially we had a few small issues (patio door with broken lock and no way to secure it plus TV not working) but these were addressed and fixed the next day. The master bedroom A/C remote control is located on the back of the door, for your information, too! We ventured up to the Condovac Resort on foot (a steep walk!) and by the shuttle to use the more reliable internet, swim, view the sunset, play pool, and work out in the gym (great for Cross Fit types). While in Playa Hermosa we also went SCUBA diving with Rocket Frog Divers and took a trip to Rincon Vieja. Overall this was a wonderful family vacation, and Leticia's wonderful property was the perfect spot for our family of 5. Be sure to print our their directions with helpful information and contact information! Pura Vida!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thank you for contributing the boogie boards for the future Guests. They will truly enjoy them. Yes there is complimentary access to the Condovac Resort next door for all my Guests to enjoy all the amenities. The Guests really love the beautiful views of Playa Hermosa from the Infinity pool. The trip to Rincon Vieja is always fun with different activities to do such as horse back riding, mud baths, tubing down Rio Negro and zip-lining. It's about a 30 minute drive from the town of Liberia. Please bring your family for more adventures in Costa Rica.

                                                                      The perfect vacation! We loved this villa, The Las Brisas complex and staff, and Playa Hermosa!

                                                                      Sandy W.

                                                                      The villa was perfect for our party of six (family with two teens, grandma and aunt) - spacious, clean and well-equipped. Communication with the owners and check-in was easy. The beach and restaurants were minutes away and access to Condovac was an unexpected bonus.

                                                                      Las Brisas and Playa Hermosa is an excellent vacation spot for travellers with tweens and teens or multiple families traveling together. Las Brisas backs up to Condovac with a calm beach adjacent. Everything is walkable and safe. I would feel comfortable letting my teens (in pairs or groups) go out and about.

                                                                      Thanks Leticia for having us!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Fabulous Condo Playa Hermosa

                                                                      Elaine M.

                                                                      Great location for this big beautiful condo. One block from a beautiful, quiet beach this condo had everything we needed for a great stay at Playa Hermosa - wish we could have stayed longer than the 4 nights we had left in CR! The condo pool is a delight and the grounds and condo are beautifully kept. We used the Condovac infinity pool for a great sunset view overlooking the whole bay as well as eating at the great beachfront restaurants within easy walking distance. We loved Aqua Sport Bistro especially. The open concept kitchen/living room and outside eating area made our meals a delightful experience. We will definitely be back if we're lucky enough to get back of Playa Hermosa. Thanks for a wonderful experience - Pura Vida!!

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      That's the nice thing about Villa #2, if you want to dine-in the kitchen is fully equipped. There's also a Bar-B-Que grill and a patio table that seats 6 persons. Or if you like to eat out there are numerous restaurants across the street that serve delicious food and have wonderful views of the beach & sunsets. Hopefully when you decide to return to Playa Hermosa for a longer stay please visit Las Brisas Villa #2.

                                                                      Great location

                                                                      Mia M.

                                                                      As I’m sitting on the couch sipping my coffee, listening to the monkeys hollow and the waves crashing.. I don’t want to leave. It’s been 9 wonderful days of sightseeing, swimming in the ocean, beautiful sunset and eating great seafood.

                                                                      The location of this condo is great, far away and quite, but yet close to everything. The condo is self is in good conditions. With some minor fixes it would be a five stars. Internet is not the best, couple of light bulbs are burned out, the dryer leave streaks on white clothes, air conditioner in the master bedroom is really loud, and rattled a lot makes it hard to sleep. Besides some of these minors things I would stay here again. Thanks Costa Rica for a great vacation.. Mia and family.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

Regarding the repairs that have now been taken care of and I thank you for mentioning them to me. We do have a property manager on site that will take care of repairs during your stay. I would like to welcome you and your family on your return trip to Playa Hermosa.

                                                                      Great vacation spot!

The villa was well appointed, very spacious and we enjoyed the views, pool, beach, Condovac and wonderful dining options. Location was great and took day trips to Playa Flamingo, Playa Coco and Llanos de Cortez waterfall south of Liberia. Wifi was an issue most days- also for neighbors but we (kids especially) would go to Condovac to get.

                                                                      Owner's Response:
