Playa Hermosa is a coastal town in the state of Guanacaste, where 34.5% of the population live in poverty, a contrast to 16.3 percent in the Central region. Only 40% of the population between the ages of 20 and 64 have finished high school. Many schools have limited teaching materials and school supplies; with technology they can access a wealth of information and have a shot at a better life through education.

This area has always been somewhat separated from the rest of the country (it was once annexed by Nicaragua), and has its own regional flavours and customs. The white sand beaches are popular escape spots, though, especially the more glamorous ones such as Playa Conchal. Many of the small fishing villages are now buzzing with visitors, and a once sleepy hub now has day and nightlife.
