Hermosa Springs is situated in the hills overlooking the sunny beaches of Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica. At just ten minutes from Jaco, Playa Hermosa offers surfers some of the best and most consistent surf breaks in the world. With year-round waves and warm water, Hermosa hosts professional surf competitions attracting thousands of spectators and tourists. Jaco is Costa Rica’s most popular beach destination and offers a complete range of services and shops catering to tourists and residents alike. Just a short drive to the south are the beautiful and less frequented beaches of Esterillos, Bejuco, and Parrita.
From San Jose, it’s a 1 hour 45-minute drive to the property using the newly finished Autopista Caldera. This toll road, a $258 million government investment, is proving to be a huge asset for the rapidly developing Central Coast, as it has nearly halved travel time between the capital city and Jaco.
Hermosa Springs is also only about 72 km (45 miles) from Manuel Antonio National Park, the most visited national park in Costa Rica
