Hills of Hermosa (Santiago)
Santiago is the name of the area uphill from Playa Hermosa / Santa Teresa. It stretches from Manzanillo in the north to the community of Rio Negro / Cobano.
This is definitely a favorite community for the original expats and the new wave of those that like the feel of a tropical Estate. Even if you have a more modest home than many here there is just that feeling of expansiveness and richness, incredible view or in meandering through the large open land. In Manzanillo a new landing strip for small aircraft will be built and this kind of service will allow people to come and go from their personal retreat to the international airport in minutes.
Downhill from Santiago the scenic beach of Playa Hermosa offers consistent surf conditions and great swimming. Many of Santa Teresa’s poshest hotels, gourmet restaurants and luxury vacation rentals are located here, and you even find a reputable international, bilingual school by the beach.
