Activities:

Diving Safaris – on the 2nd beach access offer daily diving, snorkeling.

Aquasport Restaurant  - on the beach 1/2 way down They also have a gift shop, kayak rentals, small sail boat rentals, snorkeling tours.

There are another dozen restaurants and another dozen bars in Playa del Coco…..a 10 minute taxi from Playa Hermosa. A fishing village that also offers grocery stores, bank, post office, Police station and probably the best location for souvenir shopping. Much better than Liberia.

 

There are boats on the beach offering snorkeling, local & deep sea fishing and sightseeing tours. Having sailed and offered daily sailing/snorkeling tours on my own boat for 5 years I am perhaps overly cautious when it comes to water activities as the weather can change quickly here. Just make sure who ever you use has the basic safety equipment as VHF radios and life jackets before boarding.

For land tours….well everyone with a car, van or has been there once is a tour operator. Make sure who ever you use …….are licensed to do tours, have insurance and have some references. The major hotels offer the large tour operators who are safe and legal. They operate on volume with large tour groups.

The beach doesn’t have rip tides and is a safe "Blue Flag" beach. Don’t leave valuables on shore while you swim at any beach or they will quickly disappear.

Have fun and enjoy you stay in Costa Rica. You can always reach Josta at 8-395-6090 if you plan some tours or just need some advice.

Relax on the beach and enjoy one of our Playa Hermosa sunsets

 

Playa Panama

The quiet and tranquil beach of Playa Panama is located just north of Playa Hermosa. Enormous Guanacaste trees (the national tree) grow up from the dark sand within feet of the ocean's edge. The water is very calm and great for swimming.

 A couple of all inclusive resorts are on either end of the beach as well. Playa Panama has a mountain lake-side feel to it and is definitely worth a stop.


Playa Panama is the next beach north of Playa Hermosa.

Earls Beach Club is right on the beach in Playa Panama located at the first beach access, a short walk from Sol Papagayo (Nakuti)

Happy hour daily and great food. 

 

For hikers staying at the Grand Papagayo - Go out the main gate to the road and turn right, walk about 200 meters and you will see new paved road on the left. Take some water, it is a great hike and worth it when you reach the top of the mountain. You can see Nicaragua to the north all Playa Hermosa and the Gulf of Papagayo to the west and south. My wife and I drive up there all the time with a bottle of wine to watch the sunsets.   

 

Views of Culebra Bay, Playa Panama and Nicaragua mountains to the North.
