A review won't do this trip justice. I traveled to Playa Hermosa solo on a Surf/Yoga/Fitness package with Christina! I enjoy traveling and being active, so I figured this would make sense and it far exceeded expectations. Christina gets to know you and what you like and then suggests activities for you to partake in over your stay. During the... More

The Surf Inn is located just seconds from Playa Hermosa beach, which makes this a really special place. We had a kitchenette in our room, and that allowed us to cook our own meals rather than eat out. I really appreciated that. The owner, Christina, goes above and beyond to make sure her guests have a wonderful stay. There are... More

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful my stay was at Surf Inn Hermosa. After a two week volunteer trip I decided to treat myself to a Surf and Yoga Package and I could not have made a better decision on where to stay. Christina (the owner) is amazing.

Understated beautiful property. This was my first trip to Costa Rica and the friendly staff made me feel comfortable and secure. Our room was clean, we had a kitchenette, and the inn is directly on the beach (absolutely beautiful). We found every thing we needed within walking distance (including a fabulous forest mountain hike across the street) and the native... More

Surf Inn is a quiet little well kept spot right on one of the best surf breaks in the area. The rooms are great with a mini kitchen and fridge. Plenty of space to relax in after a long day out on the beach.
