Surf Inn Hermosa was INCREDIBLE! I am a 21 year old female who visited for a week in March for Spring break. I traveled by myself, and Christina was amazing at making me feel comfortable, relaxed, and excited! Before arriving, she was so helpful. She worked with me and my needs to create a schedule and overall plans (including financial)...

I recently stayed at Surf Inn Hermosa while training to become a yoga teacher. The property is clean and the location is absolutely stunning... literally just footsteps to a black sand surfer's beach! Christina, the owner, is top-notch and works very hard to keep her clients/visitors satisfied. Christina knows all of the locals and so she is extremely helpful in...

Greated by warm and friendly poeple and shown a perfect room. If the ocean side is open, grab those rooms, they were sold out when I showed up. This is a great place to surf, good restaurants on either side. I'm going back.

My first trip to Costa Rica couldn't have been ANY better (except if I'd had time to squeeze in a hike at Arenal Volcano, but that was a little too far from Surf Inn Hermosa where everything else was in easy reach. Being ON the black sand beach was in itself a treat, but to be in a rustic, yet...

This boutique hotel on the beach of Playa Hermosa is the jewel of this small beach community just south of Jaco. Owners Christina and Michael are on site and always available to offer suggestions for fun local attractions and great places to eat, often known only to the locals. Very Clean and highly recommended!

The Surf Inn is wonderful - both in location and service.

I am not sure even where to start in describing how satisfied I was with my accommodations at Surf Inn Hermosa. For starters, Christina and Mike are the most amazing hosts.
