JD's Watersports in Costa Rica

This 4-star hotel sits above Playa Hermosa in the Gulf of Papagayo, about 1 hour North of Tamarindo. Playa Hermosa is a great choice for divers, because one of the best dive operators in Costa Rica is on-site. While a little crowded at times, this hotel features ocean views, an inviting pool and an excellent breakfast buffet.


All of the standard rooms have excellent ocean and pool views, with 2 queen beds, cable TV, A/C and nice decor. These are modern, clean and comfortable rooms.
