Hermosa means "beautiful" in Spanish, which is probably why two beaches in Costa Rica hold this name. Visitors much choose whether they want a Playa Hermosa Beach on both the central or northern Pacific coasts of Costa Rica. While the Playa Hermosa beach that is located on the Central Pacific Coast is popular with surfers due to its fabulously consistent surf breaks, it is part of a wildlife refuge and is not a great place for tourists because it is not fit for swimming due to the turbulent waters. However, the Playa Hermosa Beach Costa Rica located on the Northern Pacific Coast, or Guanacaste Coast, is a popular tourist destination, with its crystal clear water and the opportunity to stay at a beach resort Playa Hermosa.
Located just 20 minutes from Liberia, Playa Hermosa beach Costa Rica has become known as one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Costa Rica. A Playa Hermosa Beach vacation can easily be catered to anyone's budget. Playa Hermosa offers budget accommodations, as well as luxury resorts. A stay at a beach resort Playa Hermosa can get very expensive, but the accommodations, views, and amenities are worth the cost.
Whether or not visitors choose to stay at a beach resort, Playa Hermosa offers a number of beach activities. These include swimming and surfing in the crystal clear waters, as well as a number of scuba diving and snorkeling tours, which are some of the most popular things to do in Costa Rica. For landlubbers, horseback riding in surrounding areas is offered, and Playa Hermosa Beach Costa Rica is close enough to Arenal National Park and the Tabacon Hot Springs for a day trip to be worked into a Playa Hermosa Beach vacation.
