Playa Hermosa Costa Rica
Welcome to Playa Hermosa, Central Pacific, Costa Rica! Palms Intl Realty Costa Rica features exclusive Playa Hermosa real estate along this long expansive beach of cinnamon colored sand that is home to one of the most consistent surf breaks in Central America, yet still retains its laid back “pura vida” vibe and gorgeous natural setting.
This “Blue Flag Winner” beach is only a 1.5 hour drive from the International airport in San Jose, and just 1 mile south of Jaco. Playa Hermosa boasts plenty of wide open and pristine shoreline, yet with a conservative number of hotels, restaurants and bars to keep things interesting.
Costa Rica Properties at Playa Hermosa
We have select Costa Rica real estate options that take advantage of the popularity of the sun and surf, some are 100% beachfront titled properties on Playa Hermosa, and others are off the beach a few miles. These properties for sale are an excellent opportunity for the buyer that wants a pristine, minimally crowded shoreline of big surf and natural beauty, yet very close to major amenities and conveniences.
Playa Hermosa is famously remembered as the host to 2009 Billabong Surf World Championship in August of that year. The beach was packed with spectators and participants from all over the world, and the waves did not disappoint! Also, at the extreme south end of the beach is a turtle sanctuary, a nesting spot for Olive Ridley Sea Turtles that come ashore to lay their eggs. When they hatch, the baby turtles make their way to the ocean in a spectacular and what many witnesses describe as an unforgettable and emotional display of Mother Nature at work.
The beach at Playa Hermosa will maintain its minimally developed feel for years to come as there are very few titled beachfront areas in Playa Hermosa. However, we do have two homes on our site that are beachfront titled, a rare and premium classification for this area. Natural conservation is important in this area, and most residential offerings are a few miles from the beach.
We also have Costa Rica property listings in the hills and bluffs above Playa Hermosa which feature expansive, breathtaking ocean, mountain and sunset views. Some ocean view locations are more impressive than others but compromise can come into play as some roads are 4×4 only in the rainy season. Fortunately, we have something for everyone in this area; let us use our expertise and experience to guide you to the best opportunities that fit your needs. Please call or write regarding any of our listings or for further information regarding the Playa Hermosa area.
