First time in Costa Rica (Playa Hermosa)-Suggestions Please!

My friend and I are going to Playa Hermosa for 1 week, in 1 week. We are staying at Congo Hostel and Camping for 3 nights and then at Villa del Sueno for 4 nights. We are signed up to do Tico Tours' Extreme Adventure tour, but that is it, so we appreciate any and all suggestions:

Things to do?

Local Places to eat?

Beaches to see?

Learning to surf?


Thank you!

Dear Nicole,

Close to Playa Hermosa there is a town called Coco Beach. Visit that area to learn about the local artesans, sea food options, local sodas (smaller menu local restaurants) and night life.

In Playa Hermosa also Ginger rest has a good reputation, La FInisterra as well.

To surf you need to visit Tamarindo Area which has a great beach. Surfing lessons could be arranged previously,

Have a great trip !!!
