Playa Hermosa is part of a group of beaches that make up what is known as the Golfo de Papagayo: Playa Ocotal, Playas del Coco, Playa Hermosa and Playa Panama. We are located in Guanacaste province on the NW Pacific coast region of the country — known as the ‘Gold Coast’. Costa Rica is very reminiscent of Hawaii in the 60s and 70s with active volcanoes, spectacular beaches and great climate. Costa Rica is recognized world-wide for its biodiversity, housing over 5% of the world’s plant and animal species, has no army and prides itself on good education and health care systems.
