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!

The Surf Inn is wonderful - both in location and service. My partner had an accident in the water the second day we were there, and while he was in hospital Christina took great care of my children and I. She let us stay several extra nights although the place was booked out, and called the hospital on my behalf... More

I am not sure even where to start in describing how satisfied I was with my accommodations at Surf Inn Hermosa. For starters, Christina and Mike are the most amazing hosts. Christina can answer any question you have and line up any activity you desire. Mike has the area wired in terms of the best and least crowded surf breaks.... More

The Surf Inn was fabulous and we couldn't have asked for better accommodations and hospitality. Christina is the best and very helpful with anything you need. This place is definitely a hidden treasure, its right on the beach with several good restaurant's within walking distance. We highly recommend this place and will definitely be back. PURA VIDA

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here at Surf Inn Hermosa and have become enamored once again with this "hidden gem". For those that want an off the beaten path experience, yet like the accessibility of modern conveniences, look no further! Also, new Costa Rican travelers will appreciate staying here!

A relaxing stay that only hit the tip of the iceberg. I can't wait to head back for yoga, surf lessons, and nearby restaurant visits. Very relaxing stay with a totally accommodating and relaxed host. Very good value for the money and well organized yoga or surf packages. It was supposed to be the rainy season but was more summery... More

Surf inn Hermosa was the location of my 3 week yoga retreat. The location is far enough from town to feel the benefits of serenity. But close enough to go to shop, eat or party.
