What can we say..Pura Vida! Authentic Costa Rica. Isabel takes wonderful care of her little gem! I wanted my family to experience Costa Rica, not a resort. And we did. The court yard is cobble, with many new plants that Isabel and her crew are bringing along nicely. Everything here is basic, lets be clear. But you will want for nothing as long as Isabel is in charge! Her English is better than she thinks, and her hospitality is unending. The beach is wonderful in Hermosa, the food is great. ATM, groceries, liquor store, bus station, SCUBA, fishing, snorkeling, play ground, beach massage...everything you want is very easy to get here. But NO CROWDS! It's great! So easy to get to as well, just turn at the Playa Hermosa entrance and go straight to the beach! The house on the right? That's home! Jose can get the monkeys riled up for you just to hear them holler! It was a most amazing discovery on his part! Isabel took us for groceries, ATM twice, and shopping over to Coco. Best host ever! AUTHENTIC TICO PROPERTY. Very basic, but well maintained, and clean. I can not say enough how pleased we were with such an authentic experience! We will be back in a month or so and Isabel is now our "Aunt who lives on the beach in Costa Rica!" We will never stay anywhere else!
