- Playa Jaco is the closest beach to San Jose, the Central Valley and is one of the most visited coastal destinations in Costa Rica. The beach is a 2.5 mile (4 km) strip which offers world renowned surfing and more. Activities include surfing, swimming, deep sea fishing, ATV tours, bicycle rentals, horseback excursions, crocodile safari, national parks and reserves, boat and kayak excursions, white-water rafting, canopy tours and popular night life. With all there is to offer it is no wonder Jaco is as popular as ever.Manuel Antonio National Park is within driving distance of Jaco as it sits majestically, 43 miles (69 km) to the south. Punta Leona Wildlife Refuge (Refugio de Punta Leona) is another place visitors have a good chance of seeing wildlife, which is located along the drive north from Jaco towards the town of Tarcoles. ...moreless

Relaxing Holiday at Calle Europa
Relaxing Holiday at Calle Europa
We spent 2 months vacationing here and had a great time with friends and family. The grounds were amazing, and the pool was exactly what was featured. Fruit market/butcher store/variety store were all close at hand for walking. The owner was most accommodating along with her staff, as well the neighbour was very welcoming. Jaco is a pleasant town to enjoy a holiday.

Our family had the pleasure of spending 16 days at this property which met all expectations for our vacation. The advertisement for this home is bang on and much better looking than the pictures. The property is situated on a quiet street with nice homes and within walking distance to the main street of Jaco and the beach. The house comes equipped with every need and the back yard is your own personal paradise; with warm private pool, BBQ area, lush vegetation, birds and privacy. Get up early and watch the Macaws play while the Iguanas and Geckos enjoy the early morning sun. We cooked most meals at home as we are a family of five and most restaurants are priced comparable to Canadian and US prices with some very good and some very bad food. If you are on a budget I would recommend to eat at local Tico restaurants with great food at reasonable cost. (Tico Rustico, $3.00 breakfast, and just around the corner of the home, a small outdoor Tico eatery) these all had great food for under $5.00, with helpings enough for two. Chicken is very good at all places and if bought fresh and cooked at home. If you rent a car you will be able to go anywhere for activities from this location and if it’s American style groceries you want, then the store at Los Suenos is for you. I recommend that you do some research on the town and get to know the people and ask questions. Also, check prices for things like zip lining, surfing, horseback riding, fishing …..as the operators will barter for your business. If there is a negative to this property it would be the lack of air conditioning throughout the house and screens on the windows. It can get very hot in CR and it takes time to get acclimatized. We found that mosquitos in the back yard were awful and seemed immune to the strongest spray. The gardener did spray the yard near the end of our stay which helped greatly. For this reason we rate this property a 4 out of five.

Tropical Garden review
Tropical Garden review
It was a real pleasure staying at the Tropical Garden in Jaco during the first week of October. I was traveling with my husband and he could not have picked a more ideal place to stay during our visit. The house was comfortable, extremely well decorated, and felt like a home away from home in paradise. The location was convenient to everything but it was also hard to leave the beautiful pool and the privacy the house had to offer. Truly amazing stay! Thank you!

Why the Owner Chose Jaco:
After visiting Jaco Costa Rica during my holiday in Costa Rica, I found Jaco to be the perfect place for me. I always dreamed of living in a warm and tropical place. Close to the capital San Jose, Jaco is easy to get to and from the airport. There are two national parks close by, Manuel Antonio is just a 45 minutes drive and park Carara just 20 minutes from Jaco. The river Tarcoles has the most and the largest crocodiles gathering in Central america. My daughter and her family have been vacationing in this town for 19 years.I hope you will enjoy everything Costa Rica has to offer.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beach is a short 10 minutes walk from the house.We enjoy our morning walks on the beach. An other walk we love to take is up the mountain, if we go early enough we often see the white face monkeys and the beautiful Morpho butterfly. The marina is just 10 minutes driving from Jaco in Herradura, there are several super market that offers all the products needed to prepare any gourmet meals. Every morning we take our coffee in the garden among the tropical plants, it is so peaceful and relaxing.
