2013 Photo Gallery

The end of 2013 marks our five year anniversary here at Surf Inn Hermosa and the end of one of our busiest year yet as we transitioned more into offering All Inclusive Active Lifestyle Packages.  It has been a lot of fun entertaining our guests, fulfilling retreats not only for individuals and couples, but for groups as well.  Everyone has had a great time and experienced PURA VIDA here in Costa Rica. This year, we have received visitors from all over the world.  We were honored to host guests from Costa Rica, The United States, Canada, Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil, Ireland, England, Russia, China, Peru, Chile and India.

During low season, we took advantage of slower time to work on lots of maintenance and upgrades here at Surf Inn.  All of the roofs, gutters and teak railings were attended to and we have new cement breakfast bars on the verandas of the oceanfront units.  Both Christina and Michael have been very busy as well this year.  Christina hosted the first 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification Program on our third floor yoga deck and received her own certification in Vinyasa Flow Yoga at the same time.  This third floor yoga area is now available for retreats by reservation according to availability.  She also became certified in Reiki Level One attunement and attained the First Degree in the Usui Method of Natural Healing.  She also has just been let loose on Instagram.

Michael followed his passion and wrote a book called “Power Food Kitchen”  which features easy to make plant based foods for living a high powered, active lifestyle. The book is now available at the Inn and also online at

Overall, it has been an exciting year and we want to thank all of our friends, family and guests for all of their support in 2013 and we look forward to hosting all of you and new guests during the season in 2014!

Watching the sun set over the Pacific

Watching the Sunset at Villa Caletas

Watching the Sunset at Villa Caletas can be a one of a kind breathtaking experience and highly recommended. The Greek amphitheater overlooking the ocean boosts some of the most spectacular views in the Central Pacific zone.  Best to arrive early and take in the view with sunset cocktails followed by a fabulous dinner at one of their two restaurants.  Below are just a few shots from our last outing to their Amphitheater Restaurant.
