Enjoy a luxurious Costa Rica vacation in one of our rentals at Hermosa Palms, a dazzling, oceanfront resort on the shores of Puntarenas Province. With a swim-up bar, poolside picnic spots, massages, and beach access, this property is a dream. Did we mention the resident sea turtles?
Where Is Hermosa Palms?
Sitting quietly along Central America's Pacific Coast on Hermosa Beach, this gated resort community is just about 70 miles from the capital city of San José. This resort puts you close to the rainforests, beaches, and nightlife of Costa Rica
. To the north just up the road is the central town Jaco for local cuisine and souvenirs, and within an hour drive are parks and adventurous attractions. You'll never run out of activities, and you'll also find tons of space and time to relax.
Hermosa Palms Resort Amenities
Wake up to the chatter of macaws hanging out in trees just outside your window. With 1,200 to 8,000 square-foot villas available for your big beach getaway, our vacation rentals at Hermosa Palms offer the privacy you want with the close proximity to wild and wonderful Puntarenas attractions
Formerly a family farm, the barn has since been converted into a resort clubhouse. While some rentals come with their own pools, all guests are welcome to use the beachfront pool with a swim-up bar.
Schedule a massage and relax within earshot of the waves or wade into the warm ocean. Hermosa Beach has a long, shallow shore, so you'll have tons of space to boogie board, surf, stand-up paddleboard, and kayak. Book passage on a deep sea fishing boat or cast a line close by.
Picnic areas are open for your use, whether you choose to prep meals in your private kitchen or have the clubhouse chef whip up Costa Rican delights. The house offers freshly prepared smoothies for breakfast and amazing fish tacos for lunch and dinner.
Hermosa Palms Sea Turtles
You may get to witness one of the most amazing events of ocean life. Since sea turtles come back to this beach each June through November to lay their eggs, palm-sized babies hatch and make their triumphant march to the water each September through January. Protected by the government, these turtles are free to wander, so bring your zoom lens and binoculars for a closer look and be sure not to touch!
Things to Do Near Hermosa Palms
The resort's private, yet convenient location on the coast allows you to experience Costa Rica with ease. Take a short drive to the bustling town of Jaco
to pick up a few pounds of Central American coffee for friends at home and sit down for authentic horchata, ceviche, and coconut curry Caribbean dishes at local restaurants.
Outdoor Costa Rica attractions are plentiful. Go birdwatching for macaws, toucans, and hummingbirds at the Carara National Park. This park also has a universal access trail for the handicap. Find yourself in the middle of the rainforest at Manuel Antonio Park and you may even spot one of the cutest animals on earth: a baby sloth. Take a guided waterfall tour, stroll botanical gardens, butterfly farms, and serpentariums, or take an exhilarating zip line ride over a monkey-studded canopy of trees! Traverse the Gulf of Nicoya shoreline to see what other little gems you may find.
