“10 days of fun!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Liked the quiet and peaceful surroundings. It was just me and my teenage girls. Playa del Coco was a hopping spring break like town over the hills about 6 miles (10k) away. The people of Costa Rica are awesome. Tico Tours was great. We did four excursions with them and I would rate it from top to bottom;
All day canopy tour to Borinquen, white water rafting Tenorio River, Arenal volcano (long day in the car), and snorkeling was not that great around Playa Panama.

“Sick, Chill Beach”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Families, couples, just not for spring-breakers, unless they're regretting decisions they made in undergrad, and now don't have the funding to actually do the things they really love to do!

“Playa Hermosa at Condovac La Costa”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Playa Hermosa is a crescent shaped black sand beach on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The roaring surf has waves higher than those we saw in six days at Waikiki, Hawaii.

Even in the hot afternoons, the breeze of the water is strong and cool. Insect repellant is necessary.

Surf boards and other water sport equipment can be rented along the beach. The beach is bordered by a grove of trees that provides shaded eating areas and a natural walkway the full length of the beach. Umbrellas and chairs can be rented.

There are vendors with fruits, juices, ice cream, coconuts, and snack foods.

Small hotels, villas, and restaurants are on land side of the grove.

We only ate at the restaurant at Condovac La Costa, where we were staying. The facility is immaculate. The Costa Rican food served is large portions, well prepared, and reasonably priced. The breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus offer a variety of choices. The wait staff, who speak English and Spanish, are polite, attentive, and professional.

We just returned from Playa Hermosa and we absolutely loved it. It was very quiet and lovely and everyone we encountered was very friendly. We can't wait to return!
