When visiting Playa Hermosa, turn left when you get to the beach and walk down the beach a bit until you see the Agua Sport sign on the left. Great beach front location on beautiful Hermosa beach. There are lots of large chairs set out on the beach for casual dining. The food and drinks were great but the wait staff was super slow in taking our order and bringing us food. There is a really large swing that kids enjoy playing on.

We have vacationed in Playa Hermosa in Costa Rica for seven of the past 12 years. Since we stay in either of the two main hotels on the beach, we frequently visit Aqua Sport for lunch or dinner. My memories are of them serviing some of the best shrimp dishes that I have ever had. This trip, we visited for dinner with a gentle breeze blowing, the view of the sunset was wonderful, a nice band playing in the backgroud and sipping on a few very tasty margaritas. However, my shrimp dish was not up to par. I was served tiny shrimp drowned in garlic sauce rather than the large shrimp grilled and seasoned with garlic. Not really that big of a deal except that I was telling my friends how good the shrimp were at this restaurant. Still, the atmosphere and drinks very nice but the actual food kept me from giving it a five star review.

We really loved Aqua Sport! It's an easily accessible walk down the beach and the atmosphere is so great. They've got a rope swing and a huge beach chair which are great for photo ops/entertaining kids. It's right on the water so the vibe is definitely very beachy. The food was delicious - we tried the calamari and fish tacos and both were very tasty. Drinks were exceptional, especially the House Margarita. Would highly recommend to anyone who comes here for a meal. Servers were also very kind and funny, they definitely earned their tip!

Only caveat I would say is to beware of bees. There were about four or five that just wouldn't leave our table alone. They didn't sting any of us, but if you are allergic to bees, either bring an Epi-pen or steer clear. It might have just been the season/day we were there, but it's best to be safe rather than sorry.

All in all, highly recommend!

Great foor and drinks right on the beach. Eat and watch the sun set over the Pacific. Afternoon beers in the heat with an ocean dip, what a way to spend a vacation. Catch the local talent Giampi when ever he preforms for a fantastic night of music, SOme of the best Pink Floyd covers ever.

Doesn't look like much from the outside or the beach but then most places in CR are notfancy. We walked here from our condo so it was really close, on the beach good views during the day but it gets dark early in Costa Rica in July/August about 6 pm. Glad we had flashlights for the walk back. Ate here twice love their ceviche and fish sandwiches, First night really good server named Cola. Second time not so good server but the food was good both times.
