Surf Inn is a quiet little well kept spot right on one of the best surf breaks in the area. The rooms are great with a mini kitchen and fridge. Plenty of space to relax in after a long day out on the beach.

I would definitely recommend doing a retreat at the Surf Inn Hermosa! I did the 6 Day Budget Yoga and Surf Retreat and it was the most amazing experience thanks to Christina and the staff. I was a little nervous to do my first solo trip but Christina helped me every step of the way. She gave me a lot... More

Surf Inn Hermosa is an amazing place. I decided about a month ago I wanted to do a yoga retreat and researched a bunch of different places. Was looking at Puerto Rico, Hawaii, California and ended up deciding on this place in Costa Rica. Best decision ever! Christina is amazing! I decided to take on this adventure by myself, first...

My friend and I spent a week at Surf Inn Hermosa doing a beginner surf package. Christina put together a terrific schedule of activities for us including daily surf lessons with local pros and yoga at some cool studios in town. We also tried some stand up paddle board, snorkeling, and mountain hiking. Everyone we met there were super friendly... More

I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Jaco or Hermosa. Christina and her staff were absolutely wonderful. We couldn't have had a better spot on the beach. The hotel was not only clean and nicely decorated, but it also had everything we needed. It was great!!!!! I am never staying anywhere else when I come to Costa Rica.

I have a hectic life in DC where I suffer from nature deficit disorder. I wanted to chill and catch some waves and do yoga: no driving, no rushing, and no planning. This trip was perfect, the food was great, and I can't speak highly enough about the surf instructors. I can't wait to return.

I don't know where to begin- my trip to Costa Rica and staying at Surf Inn was life changing. Every day was full of activities, amazing beaches, and even more amazing people that actually care about your well being and that you are having a great time. I want to thank Christina for everything... i will 100% be back.

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
