Jaco Beach, Costa Rica

On the mid-Pacific coast, Jaco is the nearest beach from San Jose (Puntarenas does not count, as it is polluted.) Jaco is as popular with the locals as with tourists, so plan ahead for weekends and major holidays.

There is plenty to do in town and on the curving stretch of sand. Surfing, fishing, swimming and canopy tours are all nearby. Nonstop nightlife and a variety of hotels, resorts and villas make this an excellent vacation destination.

It is just a ninety minute ride by car or tour bus from Manuel Antonio National Park. Or you can visit the nearby Tarcoles River to see the giant salt water crocodiles beneath the bridge.

Kayaking on the river or along the beach is only one of many aquatic adventures available from this town



Jet skis and parasailing are also available.

Shopping for souvenirs, clothing, arts and crafts and other items is another of this town’s many attractions. The main drag is lined with shops offering all kinds of things, from expensive jewelry to budget gifts.

Dining opportunities abound. You can find Peruvian, Oriental, seafood, Mediterranean — the assortment of restaurants is unmatched by any city outside San Jose.

The key thing to remember about Jaco is that this is a party town, almost all-year long. During high season, you will find plenty of people in the streets and bars until dawn, while others prefer to watch the sunrise from the shelter of a palm tree on the beach. (If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle, get a room on the south end rather than near the heart of the action, which starts just south of the Best Western.)

Nightlife Jaco Style: You can party like a Rock Star till daylight and then some. There is always a happening someplace rather it be the Monkey Bar, Le Loft, Orange, or even out at the Backyard bar in Hermosa. Some were every night of the week you can find a party and way to many beautiful women.

We have women here from many different country’s Columbia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and even Dominican Republic. So you are for sure to find a new friend to party with or friends to party all night with. There is plenty of cold beer and your favorite bottle of Booze to share with your friend’s. Crazy ass loud music to dance to and beautiful women to dance with.
