The Pacific Coast region centered on Playa Hermosa offers some of the best surf in the country. With world-class waves, Playa Hermosa holds International Surf Championships every year, bringing in hundreds of expert surfers from all over the globe.

The best time to surf in Playa Hermosa is from April to November, when the tide is high and rising. Due to excellent swell exposure from the south-southwest, waves will stay consistently in the head-high range, with plenty of bigger days.

The beach break at Playa Hermosa has an ample amount of power and sees the good left and right peaks. If you’re keen to venture off, the resort offers guided tours to some of the best breaks in the area, of which there are about a dozen.

Boca Barranca is a smoking river mouth lefthander, while Escondido is a solid reef break with fun left and right barrels. Your guide will know exactly where to go and he will put you on the best waves according to the current conditions and your ability level.

The lodge

Pura Vida! And welcome to Las Brisas Resort and Villas. Our luxury boutique hotel features quality accommodations surrounding the pool and is set in a tropical jungle oasis. The resort offers a relaxing atmosphere, with peace and quiet in a tranquil setting.

We offer a full-service restaurant and bar with a room or poolside service. Las Brisas Resort and Villas is located in Playa Hermosa and situated at the foot of the Hermosa Hills in Puntarenas Province on the Central Pacific coast.

Our lodge is nearby Playa Hermosa, with miles of uninterrupted pristine natural coastline. With warm water and an abundance of sunshine, it is an excellent choice for relaxing and enjoying a hassle-free vacation or enjoying some of the best surfing in the world.

Playa Hermosa is known as a world-class surfing destination and is not as touristy as the nearby town of Jaco to the north. Playa Hermosa is a smaller beach village in a more laid-back community and tends to attract those who want to spend more time in, or on, the water or just relaxing by the pool or at the beach.

The Courtyard Cafe’s poolside Rancho Bar offers a variety of beers, wine cocktails and liquors and the professional kitchen provides “cooked to order” breakfast, lunch, dinner and other snack options.

Welcome to Las Brisas Resort & Villas! I’m Mark, the owner. I quit corporate life and decided to retire early, at the age of 50, to chase the Pura Vida lifestyle here. After 33 years and 8 months in the medical field, it all comes to an end! I’ve decided to retire from my medical sales career & pursue a totally new adventure in life.

My next adventure began in Costa Rica! I have purchased a boutique resort in the Jaco area in Costa Rica. It’s consistently voted the happiest country on Earth due to the Pura Vida mentality, which translates to mean “simple or pure life,” but really, it refers to the entire lifestyle here. After chasing a sales quota for so many years, I decided that I needed a less stressful lifestyle… so Costa Rica it is!

If you ever want to come to check out the “Pura Vida” lifestyle, let us know, as you now have friends in Costa Rica! We’ll hook you up with a discounted package at Las Brisas Resort and Villas & set you up with some amazing tours and things to do. But be warned... you may not want to leave.
