From Jaco go to Playa Hermosa, at the last building on the right (going south) turn onto the dirt track paralleling the beach. Four hundred meters down there is a really obvious tree (usually with a bunch of surfers hanging around).

Best Beach Breaks in The World - This place receives so much swell it is amazing. The surf can be totally epic on it's day. The surf here is generally fun. However can get really big and will wash surfers to the beach. One of my favorite pastimes is to sit on my deck and watch a group of frothy surfers that think they can surf. Then they attempt to paddle out and get washed away. No worries, humility is a good thing. It is very entertaining. Totally amazing area. If you plan a trip here you will not get skunked. The only problem is it may be to big. If that happens you need to know where to look. Good luck with that!

tree closed out - I spent a week here and never saw it good in front of the tree. Lots of guys out getting pummeled, but few makeable waves.

the tree - the tree isn't all i thought that it was going to be. most waves would close out, no matter the size. fun, yes. but not the best break in hermosa. turle farm is "my" favorite break here.
