The waves were perfect for our kids to do some body surfing but not too rough where I really had to worry about them. The... More

Playa Hermosa has friendly people, warm water with a sandy bottom, and restaurants on the beach. It is an easy place to swim, but it's too calm to surf. There were monkeys that hung out above the vendors looking for some free food. We tried some of the other beaches nearby, but preferred this one.

We were there having our fish fried and as we ate it on the beach, there were many locals enjoying the coast. It was nice to get the local flavor away from the resort environment, something authentic.
