Our Suggestions:

I have been involved in business in Costa Rica for 20 years. I am partners in The Backyard Bar and The Backyard Hotel. I have lived in Playa Hermosa and know Costa Rica very well. These are some of the suggestions that I would like to share with you.

Our house is safe, secure, brand new and downright beautiful. It is gated, guarded and alarmed. My partners in the Backyard, Nick and Sy, have houses on either side of my house. Nick lives in his house year round and should be around during your stay.

If you are a surfer, Play Hermosa and the surrounding areas are fantastic. It is one of the most consistent breaks you will ever visit. You can surf right in front of the house or walk to the Backyard. You can drive 5 minutes to The Tree or Tulin. Roca Loca is right around the corner. If you are travelling with beginners Jaco is a great place to start. Board rentals and lessons are abundantly available. Some other great surf spots in the surrounding area include, Escondida, La Isla, Little Fiji, Boca Barranca, just to name a few.

There are great dining options with walking distance from the house. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are offered everyday at The Backyard. It is affordable, clean and the view is awesome. I am also partners in The Backyard, so of course I highly recommend it. Cabinas Las Olas in Hermosa also has great breakfast. In Jaco, I recommend Wishbone and Tsunami for dinner. They are both great and affordable.

The shopping in Jaco is fun. Tons of trinkets and browsing. You will get the drift when you go there. There are supermarkets, drugs stores a hospital and doctors readily available in Jacó as well.

I also recommend renting a car in Jaco once you get to Hermosa. The car rental place will bring you the car right to the house. It is very easy and safe. Our concierge, Estaban, will help you with this.

I am sure you have a million questions if you have gotten this far. Do not hesitate to call me at 609.892.9947 or email

Pura Vida,

Eric Millstein.
