Apparently Gary has decided to shut down his Bombero Adventures and move back to the States. We have referred a number of potential clients to him and he has not responded to any of their emails or voice mails. What a shame. He had a great gig going. Good luck Gary in your new adventure!

Gary saved our vacation. Our credit card was shut off due to a fraudulent charge as we boarding the plane to Costa Rica. Ever try renting a car without a credit card? Nope, not possible. After we took a cab to the b&b (thankfully it's only a 30 minute drive from the airport), Gary called the car rental and had... More

This being my first foray in arranging a stay in a B + B, I could not have been happier having found Gary Johnson at BOMBERO ADVENTURES as my contact.

My daughter and I stayed here for one night and wished it could have been for longer. The views are spectacular and it's an easy walk down to the beach (not so easy going up, but Gary gave us a ride so we didn't have to do that, haha). The wifi is strong and you can even use a phone... More

Gary made my time in Playa Hermosa an effortless pleasure! He arranged every excursion, my favourite being the day trip to Nicaragua, and ensured that things ran smoothly. His attention to detail and absolutely delightful personality was an unexpected and very welcome surprise. The accommodation are world class, as is the view and he cooks a mean breakfast as well!...

Gary was such an excellent host and took such great care of us. My friend and I stayed with Gary for a full week. I woke up almost everyday and took a stroll to the beach. After an invigorating walk back, I would be pleasantly greeted by Eveyln's amazing breakfast. Gary set up many adventures for us and also let... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A beautiful villa with private pool overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, - Managed by a U.S. newly retired Fire Fighter. The first floor, for a total of 3 1/2 bathrooms. Two second floor balconies provide breathtaking views of the blue Pacific. The house has all new custom built furniture and GE appliances. Top quality bedding, and linens imported from the US.The villa sleeps 6 in beds and has two inflatable beds for a total of 8. Combine it with Villa Aurelia next door and bring a party of up to 16 guests--6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms 2 kitchens-all for the price of one large house.The pool is surrounded by a stone deck and enjoys a view of the ocean, the village and the surrounding hills- the sunsets will knock you out!We are on the hill just above the tree canopy-close to the village but high enough to enjoy the ocean view-compare to village properties with no view ( or no private pool) and to properties so high on the mountain that walking to the village is impossible. This casa is 8 minutes to the beach on foot, 1 minute by car.Playa Hermosa is the best vacation destination in Costa Rica. Its quiet, safe and is proud to fly the "Blue Flag" for its ecologically clean and safe beach. The surf here is for swimmers, not surfers. On the beach you will find several restaurants. Let us also set up your tours for this area.The village has several American/European restaurants, as well as local eateries. It does not have nightclubs or casinos- you can travel 10 minutes south to Playa del Coco for that. ... more   less
