Hermosa, which means "beautiful" in Spanish, is an aptly named
gray-sand beach that perches between two mountains. In fact there are
two Playa Hermosas, the other being in the Central Pacific Coast near
Jaco. Guanacaste's Playa Hermosa is situated between Playa del Coco and Playa Panama, Hermosa is seldom as crowded as its
neighbors. It is a fabulous getaway for those seeking quality
relaxation. Most visitors bring a blanket and sunscreen to soak up
Guanacaste's burning sun, and due to its calm surf.
