    It is a very beautiful area. The people are extremely friendly.

    There are a variety of food options for you to choose from.

    It did rain almost every afternoon while we were there but that was okay because we were prepared.

    We took a chance and headed to the beach between showers. I was able to capture a few really really great shots of the sunset!

    Raul gave us an amazing tour. We drove down to the end of the beach to patrol that side. He made sure we walked behind him so as not to stubble our toes in the darkness. We hike for maybe 15 minutes before finding a turtle laying eggs. He made sure we didn’t spook her while she was digging her hole. Then we sat quietly behind her as she laid her eggs. It was a magical experience! Thank you guys for protecting the turtles! You’re really building something important here! So much love!

    San Antonio De Paduga is a beautiful church in Costa Rica next to Playa Hermosa. On Paduga.com every Sunday you can listen to beautiful gospel music and the beautiful christian music is ideal for every believer. Distribute your faith global and get inspired by this beautiful old church.

    Vacationing in Playa Hermosa since 1995, back when you’d be lucky to see one massage therapist on the beach. These days, for both good and bad, you’ve got a variety to choose from. And it is Isabel Nunez who I highly recommend you get your massage from. Usually found starting around midday on the beach in front of Hotel Bosque Del Mar (south end of the beach). She is the epitome of what everyone should aspire to in their respective professions, and that’s not an exaggeration. I receive massages fortnightly back home and Isabel’s service and skill blew me away. Friendly and personable, prompt, strong but a gentle touch, fluent in English, professionally trained, does house calls, very reasonable pricing, and AMAZING magic-like hands. If you’re visiting Playa Hermosa or the surrounding areas, do yourself a big favor and spend 60 min with her - it’ll change your experience. On a side note, Theresa, another massage therapist also located on the beach in front of Hotel Bosque Del Mar is fantastic, too.

    I have been coming here since I moved to Costa Rica in 2021. In the states I had a hand and stone membership because I often have pain in my neck, shoulder and back ( remote worker). I have literally never had a better masseuse than Josue. Whether it’s a relaxing massage or deep tissue I always come off the table feeling sooooooo much better! I’d highly recommend, it’s definitely worth the visit . If you’re really tight go for a combination massage the stretching helps a ton.

    If you travel in Costa Rica you must use this company as your travel guides.
    Starting with Diana's presence at work, she displays a high level of knowledge, politeness, and warmth, making the reservation process effortless and safe.
    Mark Watson, the guide, was renowned for being highly skilled in his field. His vast knowledge, friendly demeanor, sense of humor, fluency in English, and excellent driving abilities set him apart. The truck he provided for the tour was not only comfortable but also relatively new.
    Take this company and guide for your travel in costa rica!!

    My wife and I went on the All-Day Nicaragua tour and it was amazing. Our tour guide Eduardo and driver Lolito were very helpful in every aspect of our trip. The active volcano and the volcano that was filled with water were amazing to see, the old towns and churches/cathedrals were a thing of beauty. The transfer into and out of the countries borders was an experience but once again Eduardo was there to make it easy. All and all I would do it again and recommend to others 😊

    We hired North Pacific Tours for 2 excursions: fishing one day, and snorkeling the other. Our communications were done primarily through Lisa, the manager. She was very kind, considerate, and professional. She made sure that we were booking for exactly what we wanted. We were traveling with friends. The 3 guys did the fishing charter, and all of us did the snorkeling. The guys had a blast, and caught 3 types of fish: Black Fin Tuna, Red Snapper, and Cubana. They said Captain Mauricio and his mate Danny were awesome, and knowledgeable fishermen.
    They were both with us for the snorkeling as well. They had plenty of different sized equipment, and made sure that each of us were properly fitted. They took us to a couple great locations and were able to see a ton of very colorful fish and sea life.
    I would definitely recommend this charter, and we hope to return again in the near future.
    On a side note, we took the fresh fish to Bosque del Mar in Playa Hermosa. Chef Alexei prepared two extraordinary delicious meals with the fish we caught. I would definitely recommend having the restaurant cook for you!

    We very much enjoyed our excursion with Zuma. Prompt picking us up for tour. Very courteous, informative and fun. They went a step above taking extra time for whale and porpoise watching as well. The lunch was prepared fresh and we definately enjoyed. We will definately tour with Zuma again. Highly recommend!

    Great facility for movies and events. I love having first-run movies almost at my door. The prices are reasonable. As far as refreshment, fresh popcorn unbuttered but can be salty, sweet or combo. The hot dogs are nice size and tasty but the bun was not good. But will definitely go back.

    This tour group is amazing! They customized our stay with our divers, as well as the non-divers in the group. The divers had 3 days of diving, and the other days were tours to the Sloth Adventure, Zipline, Hot Springs and River boat tour. Our guide Hosea was simply amazing. He was friendly and very informative about the customs, nature and the lifestyle of Costa Rica. I would recommend this tour group for families, friends and groups! ENJOY!
