Costa Rica - Hermosa Surf Hotel
14 nights from $3,399pp
Packages include: return flights, return airport transfers, 14 nights accommodation. Longer or shorter stays are also available.
Located 90mins drive south of San Jose, Playa Hermosa and the area of Jaco is surf central for Costa Rica.
The 3 storey hotel is located right on the beach with multiple beach breaks steps away. All of the breaks in this area are over black sand and are quite hollow and lots of fun. There are two main breaks almost right out front; an A-frame and a left hand beach break. There are also dozens of other uncrowded breaks around too with Jaco having some great set ups, as well as further south down toward Quepos.
Playa Hermosa is one of the most consistent areas in Costa Rica - with swells hitting from different directions, and trade winds being generally offshore most of the time. There are many other world class consistent breaks to the north and south breaking all year round. There is no best season for surf as its like a magnet for swell - just two distinct seasons with the weather; wet (Jun-Sep) and dry (Oct/Nov-Apr)!
While you are able to be picked up and transferred to Hermosa Beach and just spend your time in this immediate area- its also an idea to pick up a rental car when you arrive in San Jose and drive here. This will enable you to explore the coastline in search of waves, as well as see the amazing tropical rainforest and other attractions nearby.
The hotel has a handful or room categories, all are air-conditioned with tiled floors, private bathroom, double and single beds and kitchens as well.
The country and wildlife is unique but typical for central America. Its not uncommon to see flocks of scarlet McCaw parrots flying past, or see crocodiles sunning themselves on river banks, or whales and fish jumping out of the water!
The nearby town of Jaco is a typical surf town, with great cheap markets, supermarkets, surf shops and bars/restaurants etc.
This is a perfect destination for a road trip with a group of friends or just your family or non-surfing partner. There is so much to do and see in this beautiful country - the surf is a bonus!
