Playa Hermosa translates to Beautiful Beach and that is exactly what Playa Hermosa is. The long beach is framed by scenic rock outcroppings and sailboats are moored in the harbor. Waves are small, making for terrific swimming conditions.
Plenty of activities are available from Guanacaste. With the calm waters, kayaking and snorkeling tours are popular in this area. Catamaran cruises provide a great way to take in the gorgeous Pacific coast and sunset if you take the afternoon tour. Offshore sport fishing is great off of the Guanacaste coast. Huge marlin, sailfish, and roosterfish are caught in this area every year.
The garden terrace restaurant is positioned right in front of the beach. At first glance, it doesn't look like special, but the food is delicious! Enjoy delicious dishes such as fresh lobster or mahi mahi or a local plate such as arroz con pollo. Tropical drinks are served at the bar.
