Playa Hermosa lies just north of Santa Teresa, and is known for its long, broad, (usually) uncrowded beach, with a great beach break and point break for surfing. Most of the Playa Hermosa area near the beach is owned by a handful of people who have no interest in selling, which is keeping the area very peaceful and beautiful.
Santiago is the area just up the hill, and most properties that are available near to Playa Hermosa are in Santiago. The prices are lower than Santa Teresa, which is only a ten minute drive to the south. Playa Hermosa has only few restaurants and hotels, but is the location for one of the southern Nicoya Peninsula’s international schools, making it a great area for families.
Tropisphere also features many fabulous ocean view properties available in the hills of Mal Pais, Santa Teresa, Playa Hermosa and Manzanillo.
