Convenient to airport, but feels so remote. Beautiful, clean beach. Great weather! Monkeys and iguanas on the beach.

Having tried several beaches in Costa Rica (all on the Pacific Coast), the good news is that the country offers a good beach for every individual taste. Playa Hermosa is in a large bay, so the water is much more tranquil than beaches down south. If you are int surfing, this is not for you. However, the calm waters and fine sand will beckon many others, such as families with children or those who just want a peaceful, serene environment. There are plenty of trees nearby, with many shaded built in public tables, so it is easy to avoid the sun and simply enjoy the beach as opposed to sit in the sun. The town also takes on the characteristic of the beach, and is quiet and subdued. However, Playa Coco, which is much more active and has a decent nightlife, is only a 5 minute drive away.
