Watch the video below to see some highlights of Playa Hermosa


Playa Hermosa, translating to "Beautiful Beach" in English, lives up to its name as a tranquil and picturesque destination. Just a brief 25-minute drive on well-maintained roads from the Liberia International Airport, it stands out as the second closest beach town to an international airport in Costa Rica. This peaceful bedroom community offers a high-quality lifestyle, attracting a diverse mix of North Americans, Europeans, and Ticos (a term of endearment for Costa Ricans).

Boasting a delightful year-round climate, Playa Hermosa is an ideal choice for retirement, vacation, or investment. Properties range from homes and condos starting in the low $300,000s to some of the most luxurious residences in the country. The town's hills surrounding the horseshoe bay provide spectacular views, where neighbors include beautiful tropical birds and the renowned howler monkeys. The ocean views rival those along the California coast, minus the hefty price tags and tax implications. Playa Hermosa offers walk to the beach condominium developments as Hermosa Del Mar, Mariners Point, Las Brisas and Ocean Breeze condominiums. 

The beach itself is a stunning feature with soft salt-and-pepper-colored sand and a tranquil environment free from riptides or undercurrents. Playa Hermosa holds the distinction of being one of only 29 Certified "BLUE FLAG" beaches in the Pacific Northwest region of Costa Rica, a government recognition for cleanliness and environmental practices. This family-friendly swimming beach occasionally offers waves suitable for safe boogie boarding. Activities such as sport fishing, sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding, and diving contribute to the vibrant beach atmosphere. 

Playa Hermosa's hospitality extends to its hotels, bars, and restaurants, some of which line the oceanfront. Notable establishments include Gingers, Villa del Sueño,  Roberto’s, El Velero Hotel, La Casita de Mariscos, Aqua Sport, Bochelli’s, and the Bosque Del Mar Hotel. Family-friendly entertainment options include a movie theater located in the Hermosa Heights development showing first-run movies in English, miniature golf, and a gymnasium. Recently added to the Hermosa Heights location is a "fresh seafood market" which has been long overdue.  Super Luperon with two locations in Playa Hermosa  is our local grocery store in the town center and caters to various shopping needs, from fresh produce to imported wines and pet supplies.  

For those seeking a broader array of shopping and dining options, Playas del Coco, just 10 minutes away, serves as the main hub for the area. It features six supermarkets, including the Auto Mercado, offering a shopping experience akin to the finest supermarkets in the US, Canada, and Europe. 

In summary, Playa Hermosa presents a blend of attributes and amenities for those in search of their "Piece of Paradise" without excessive hustle and bustle. Whether for a serene retreat or a long-term residence, Playa Hermosa invites you to experience its charm and tranquility.
