Playa Hermosa Costa Rica is a great place to wake up

After reading the article about Playa Hermosa being named one of the top 10 second home markets, I contacted my colleague in Playa Hermosa to ask him about the comment that Hermosa had sporadic electric and water service. We haven’t experienced either on our trips to Hermosa, so I wanted to ask a local. Here’s what he said:

“Hermosa is only about 300 acres and when it is completely built out someday, you are dealing with less than 750 homes TOTAL and there are only two small streets to the beach with NO real town to speak of. It is a TRUE breakfast community which makes for the perfect second home investment. It is close to the action (Playas del Coco 10 minutes) close to the airport (Liberia International Airport 20 minutes) yet you feel like you are miles from everywhere. That is what people want in a second home – NOT Cancun.

Water and electricity, as you know, are in the process of being upgraded as these developments continue to move forward. Remember, this is Central America. So if you wake up and there is no water, jump in the pool, put on a baseball cap, and go to one of those romantic open air restaurants and have yourself a nice breakfast on the beach in paradise!

But 10 years from now, anything you bought today will easily be worth 2 or 3 times what you paid, and quite possibly a lot more!

I remember living in St Thomas back when the power went out every day – life just went around it. And one day this week a client who lives in a nearby luxury condo here in St Petersburg, Parkshore Plaza, came over to our office because the building had no power.”
