After seeing glowing reviews of the Villas Hermosas, I planned the absolutely most perfect getaway. The cabin on the beach was divine, the appointments impecable; it was spacious, had ample storage, a comfortable bed beautifully dressed with a diaphanous canopy, equipped with a hammock on the porch - and views of the surf right out the front door that are priceless. Pictures don't do this lovely place justice...
With surfing right out the front door, and snorkeling in a tide pool down the beach a bit, there was something for everyone.
The first morning I awoke to notice a troupe of howler monkeys high above making its way through the trees. The complimentary breakfast served by the well maintained pool was prepared to perfection, and served with a smile.
The owner, was helpful in booking special events and outings, and recommending some fine restaurants.
What a stellar place this was to visit!
