Hello, I’m María José Barrios from LX Costa Rica.

Today, I’ll be sharing a bit about the beach community of Faro Escondido.

Faro Escondido is a private beach community located in Herradura, just an hour and a half away from San José. It spans 120 hectares across five phases. Access is through the same entrance as Los Sueños Resort, leading to a checkpoint with complete access control. Only homeowners or their invited guests are allowed in.

Faro Escondido offers security within a gated community setting. Additionally, it features a social area with a pool, barbecue space, tennis and basketball courts, and most importantly, a private beach. Access to this beach is exclusive to Faro Escondido residents or via the sea.

The majority of houses enjoy stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of Nicoya, and many of them come with their own private pools. Another noteworthy aspect is the diversity of flora and fauna present in the community. The lush vegetation is home to flying macaws, toucans, monkeys, coatis, raccoons, and iguanas.

Furthermore, Faro Escondido is conveniently close to the Los Sueños’ golf course, its marina for leisure cruises or fishing trips and its restaurants.

During peak times like Easter and New Year’s, families often gather at the clubhouse. This creates a wonderful atmosphere, marked by its healthiness and controlled environment.

Unparalleled Nature

In Faro Escondido, the embrace of nature is not just a backdrop; it’s an integral part of the lifestyle. This coastal haven is not only graced with a private beach that caresses the shores, but it’s also home to an abundance of flora and fauna that coexist in perfect harmony.

As you explore the expansive terrain, you’ll be captivated by the sheer variety of plant life that flourishes here. Lush vegetation paints the landscape, creating a vivid tapestry of colors and textures that are a testament to Costa Rica’s natural beauty.

Privacy and Security

Faro Escondido is a community that prioritizes your peace of mind. Accessible through the same entrance as Los Sueños Resort, a journey to Faro Escondido ensures that every moment is surrounded by an aura of security.

A controlled access point monitors entry to Faro. This translates to a space where only homeowners and their invited guests are granted access, preserving an intimate environment. Guards and vigilant security personnel stationed not only at the entrance but also throughout the community ensure round-the-clock safeguarding.

The most relevant cornerstone of Faro Escondido’s allure is its pristine private beach. This coastal gem is accessible exclusively from within the community or by the ocean, creating an atmosphere where you can fully immerse yourself in peace and exclusivity.


Not only does Faro Escondido offer accessibility, located only an hour and a half from San José, but also offers close proximity to nearby commodities. Los Sueños is home to one of the most sought-after golf courses in the country, and its marina is perfect for a fishing or recreational boat ride. A leisurely stroll around the social areas of the resort is a perfect afternoon activity, with many top-quality restaurants to choose from. Los Sueños is also close to the area’s Auto Mercado and other beautiful beaches, such as Jacó and Herradura.
