Sunset from Adirondack chairs beachside!

Stopped here while walking the beach for late afternoon apps and drinks. Apps & cocktails were well prepared with generous size. Plenty of Adirondack chairs and tables for lounging. Best place on Hermosa Beach for taking in the sunset.

We drove to Playa Hermosa to spend time at the beach. We found Aqua Sport by accident, but were pleasantly surprised. On top of free beach parking, we had some of the best food we have eaten in a long time. The coconut crusted sea bass tacos and pico de gallo were out of this world. Everything was fresh and...

I love Aqua sport as a bar, conveniently placed hammocks and a lovely swing out front facing the sea. The drinks are reasonably priced and the staff are lovely. I've had 2 good experiences with food here, once with pizza which is only served on certain days (sometimes it's still not available) and once with a great burger. Unfortunately I'm... More

The place looks nice and has a nice vibe, but we ordered a pina colada which barely had any rum in it, when we spoke up about it, they assured us it did, and left it at that. I had a "tiradito" which was really sloppily put together and the fish still had skin in some places... I mean come... More

I am so bummed we didn't find this place until the night before we were due to leave Playa Hermosa! It was easily the place with the best service we received in Costa Rica!!! Friendly, cheerful staff, good food and great drinks. I recommend the blended mojito! Sooooo refreshing! It's a little bit of a walk - the last bar... More

Aqua Sport Restaurant in Playa Hermosa has been a local favorite for many years. New management has raised the bar for this and all funky beachfront restaurant by the exceptional service,creative presentation, and superb quality of food you are now afforded! The extensive and interesting menu offers such delectable choices as Fish Tirradito, thin slices of very fresh marinated fish... More

This was one of the most egregiously bad dining experiences I have ever had. It was aggressively and willfully bad, not just a series of oversights. I travel regularly around Costa Rica and I am quite forgiving of substandard meals, spotty service, etc. I will give places a second chance if I feel they just had a bad night. If... More

A perfect place to watch the sunset and have dinner and/or a drink. Very casual and fun. We ended up here more than once in our weeklong stay. Wonderful!
