Three of the four days we spent in San Juan del Sur, we took the shuttle to Playa Hermosa. This private beach about 25 minutes from SJDS is home to one small hotel, the Playa Hermosa Ecolodge with an outdoor restaurant and bar — and beautiful people who bring you fruity drinks all day long. It was heaven.
Playa Hermosa was just what I needed — just relax, eat, drink, read, build sand castles, splash in the water, watch surfers and soccer players. If you find yourself in San Juan del Sur, I highly recommend you shuttle over to Playa Hermosa. You might just get hooked like we did.
