I traveled to Costa Rica with a friend of mine for a week with a friend of mine and staying at Surf Inn Hermosa was the best decision we could have made. Christina is AH-MA-ZING! We selected doing the surf package and the schedule Christina made was perfect. She has a great group of people she works with and is... More

I recently stayed at the Surf Inn Hermosa for several weeks whilst doing my Yoga Teacher Training course earlier this year. The entire property was immaculate and the groundfloor, seafront suite I was staying in was incredible, with sliding doors opening out to the beautiful Playa Hermosa. The suite had all the modern day amenities you could want and more,... More

Surf Inn Hermosa was INCREDIBLE! I am a 21 year old female who visited for a week in March for Spring break. I traveled by myself, and Christina was amazing at making me feel comfortable, relaxed, and excited! Before arriving, she was so helpful. She worked with me and my needs to create a schedule and overall plans (including financial)... More

I recently stayed at Surf Inn Hermosa while training to become a yoga teacher. The property is clean and the location is absolutely stunning... literally just footsteps to a black sand surfer's beach! Christina, the owner, is top-notch and works very hard to keep her clients/visitors satisfied. Christina knows all of the locals and so she is extremely helpful in... More

This place was amazing. We only stayed one night and the owner (Christine I think...sorry if I got that wrong) was incredible. She knew everything. Like everything, great host. The hotel was clean and being buffed up while we were there. So nice to stay in a place that is so well taken care of. Its not budget but its... More

Greated by warm and friendly poeple and shown a perfect room. If the ocean side is open, grab those rooms, they were sold out when I showed up. This is a great place to surf, good restaurants on either side. I'm going back.

My first trip to Costa Rica couldn't have been ANY better (except if I'd had time to squeeze in a hike at Arenal Volcano, but that was a little too far from Surf Inn Hermosa where everything else was in easy reach. Being ON the black sand beach was in itself a treat, but to be in a rustic, yet... More

This boutique hotel on the beach of Playa Hermosa is the jewel of this small beach community just south of Jaco. Owners Christina and Michael are on site and always available to offer suggestions for fun local attractions and great places to eat, often known only to the locals. Very Clean and highly recommended!
