Travel Blogs from Playa Hermosa
So we are now into our last week here in Costa Rica, and wow what an adventure we have had.
There have been some tough times, some great laughs and some super memories of this place...... I am so glad the Aprils did this together.
We arrived into Playa Hermosa on Monday, and as soon as we got of our bus and arrived at the Hotel …
It is surprising how different each of the Central American countries are. They all have democracies (though Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua is doing his best to become a "president for life" as they used to say in Africa). All have volcanoes, a coast on the Pacific, grow coffee, speak Spanish as their official language and are nominally Catholic. But the way people behave is very different: their culture and the approach ...
... natural sauna, which was a small rustic building built over natural springs. It stunk a little from sulphur, but not too bad. We detoxed for a few minutes (I know, I should have made it a solid hour) & then headed to the mud bath, only to find that it was nothing more than a mud "bowl". We slapped the mud all over ourselves & had fun doing so with another tour group. Once it dried, there were showers to rinse off, glad ...
... damn park is closed on Mondays! By now I am just plain numb from this experience. We decided to sit on the tailgate of the truck & eat our lunch, what else could go wrong? It started pouring cats & dogs. We quickly gathered the food & sat inside the truck to finish our gourmet lunch. I couldn't even talk, the day was a HUGE nightmare, but knew we would laugh about our bad luck later. For now I was eating Lay's chips & ...
... which is not a bad way to learn at all because now I know what is a better way to do something, or in my case, how not to do something.
The drama continued. Taylor wasn't have much luck with her IDC stuff either and Laura and I were sat on the ocean floor for a good 45 minutes.

Perfect Location for ones with a family and a great pool. All staff are super friendly. This is a family run hotel, and you can tell. Its a lovely place to end the last week of our months stay in Costa Rica. The rooms are super comfortable, very big with lots of space and the beds are amazing! We slept like kings here. The restaurant serves a great breakfast ( which is included) and then we sometimes either had lunch or supper here too. The club sandwich is to die for! Could not believe the size of it! My husband said, I have never seen anything like it - its amazing! lol
If your looking for a great comfortable place where you can feel at home, and the beach only a 4 min walk..... this is the place to come.... Thank you Mangaby
