Located 10 minutes drive south of Jaco, Playa Hermosa is a surfers paradise. The waves at Playa Hermosa are stronger and higher than these in Jaco, and it is not a good place for beginner surfers. The beach is very long and continues south from the village, towards the point of the great tree, until the beach of Tulin, which is the only beach around with decent low tide waves. The rest is mainly high tide. If the break on Playa Hermosa is too rough for you, try Playa Esterillos, 20 minutes drive further south of Hermosa, as the waves there are the same size but are more swell like, and  break much more softly. 

Please note that there are about 3 different beaches at Costa Rica which are named Hermosa, but the one which is south of Jaco is the most popular.
