After hours and hours of research on where to go on vacation and then which place to stay at I chose Villas Hermosas due to the outsanding reviews. This was my first trip to a villa type stay vs a big resort type vacation. I must say when we were driving to Santa Theresa I was a bit nervous...the roads...

The drive to Villas Hermosas from the ferry landing in Pacquera was a little long on the dusty and bumpy Costa Rican roads. But, as soon as we pulled into the parking area @ VH, we were delighted to find a real gem in the middle of the jungle! Brad and Tara, the hosts, were wonderful, and we were in...

I've stayed in several hotels in this area over the years and my wife and I enjoy this one the best. I'd say it's a combination of the location, the beauty of the area, the facilities and the owners themselves. Tara and Brad are extremely kind, friendly and accomodating and their staff follow their lead. They have a beautiful piece...

So what can you say that already hasn’t been said…the beer is too cold, the ocean too warm, the ice cream snacks too tasty?
