Playa Hermosa in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica has been named by the International Property Journal as one of the Top 10 second home markets – their compilation of vacation home destinations offering the best potential for luxury, relaxation, adventure and rental income.

HERMOSA, Costa Rica

Never has an airport changed a location as dramatically as the Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport in Liberia transformed Guanacaste, the stretch of rugged coastline on the northwest coast of Costa Rica. No more treks through San Jose and puddle jumpers over the mountains to get to the coast. Instead it’s an easy flight into Liberia and a pleasant 20-minute drive over a nicely-paved highway to the Guanacaste coast, which was in the midst of a spurt of luxury development before the slowdown.

Hermosa is a barely existent small town with few paved roads, a handful of open air restaurants and sporadic electric and water service on its own little cove, across Papagayo Bay from the Four Seasons Papagayo. With a small cluster of condos and luxury homes covering the hillside, Hermosa and neighboring Coco consistently rank as one of the most expensive places in Central America to buy an ocean view condo, according to Reveal Real Estate. Several large-scale luxury projects have been delayed in the area, including AOL founder Steve Case’s Cacique, a few miles south of Hermosa. When activity picks up, Guanacaste is set to develop as the Costa Rica Riviera.

The Simms Team visits Hermosa a few times a year, keeping track of properties there and enjoying the ambiance of an unhurried, relaxing, beautiful place. We also enjoy the neighboring Playa Panama. When we’re in the mood for a more bustling environment, Playas del Cocos is only a 10 minute drive. Our colleague there can help you find the perfect vacation home.
