Playa Hermosa is a quiet beach town known worldwide for its surfing - it hosted the world surf championships a few years back. Saturday afternoons surfers & surf fans fight for parking to witness world-class surfing at the weekly surf competitions, viewed from the privacy of your beach home. The property is located at the end of the town & the beginning of a natural reserve that preserves sea turtle nestling. It abuts the main highway known as La Costanera to the east, the Backyard hotel to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the west & an open cattle field to the south. Small restaurants, surf & a few small shops are located within walking distance. Due to the town's proximity to virgin rainforest, you will likely see Scarlet macaws on a daily basis. Iguanas roam freely all over the property.
Our country is notorious for bad roads & bad signage. For most flexibility, we recommend you hire a 4x4 with low mileage and either bring or rent a GPS. Waze is very handy! If you plan to party at night in Jaco, taxis can easily be hired for pick up and will be available in town for drop off. Always be careful with your belongings, as it is the case with all of Latin America.

I was born & raised in Costa Rica and came to the US for college to study Chemistry and German and go back to the family business. I never went back for good. I ended up living in Germany and England and a decade in Los Angeles before moving to Miami, Florida where I've lived almost 10 years ago. I've travelled to remote areas of the world & have met amazing people. Being blessed by the Maasai tribe in Africa with the name Nemeyian, the blessed one has been more than a blessing. Back in 2103, I quit my corporate real estate job after finishing the interior remodeling of an abandoned structure in Coconut Grove, Miami which I now call home. Back in 2016, after finishing the outside deck & gym, I went back to Africa to dig a water bore hole for my tribe, amongst a few other projects. I now live from the renting of my place in Miami & from managing my family's locations in Costa Rica. The awesome dream deck is rented for all sorts of awesome events when it is not rented for tourists, many which have become my friends. I live a very simple, happy and free life which revolves around adventure, community, creativity, friendship, health, movement, nature and philanthropy. Volunteering in medical missions & learning from tribes in remote areas of the Peruvian Amazon has been my latest passion.
