  • Nice place to stop and see Jaco

    "We spend 3 nights at the Stephanie and John condo. They were very very nice with us. They were always available for questions and help if needed. The condo is very well with 3 king beds. A lot of space with a wonderful view on the beach. It's well located, close to the main street where you can find easily grocery store, souvenir, etc. My family really enjoys the stay at that condo. Thanks Martin"

  • Bungalow 14

    "This is the 3rd year in a row that my husband and I have stayed in Bungalow 14 at Hermosa Beach Bungalows in Costa Rica. We absolutely love our February vacation every year in Costa Rica, so much so that we keep adding on days and book our favorite bungalow 14 right after we leave for the following year. Bungalow 14 is centrally located with the pool just yards from your door and the beach is just a short walk across the beach. The bungalow has all the amenities you could want, a full kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer. A water cooler with drinkable water. The bungalow was recently redecorated and has 2 bedrooms. The bathroom is brand new with excellent water pressure in the shower. There is a nice porch in the front of the bungalow with a hammock and chairs where one can lounge or sit and eat. My husband and I highly recommend this bungalow. The staff is also very helpful with what every your needs are."

  • A week in paradise.

    "My wife and I just returned from Jaco. This was our first time in Costa Rica. We were guests of Steve and Michelle, friends of Sabrina. This home is fabulous. Better than the pictures. It is so great to sit on the large porch and watch the sunset. Also, for us fair skinned folks, the pool is out of the sun until 11:15am. So it is a great place to swim and spend time relaxing with a book. The restaurants are within easy walking distance and are superb. Also the taxi service will deliver you anywhere in town for $2.00 US. We hope this will be the first of many trips to Jaco. Thank you for providing such a beautiful place in Paradise."

  • Beautiful Condo!

    "We very much enjoyed staying at Monaco Condos. The owners were very accommodating as we only needed to stay for one night. Most VRBO's have a minimum stay of three or more nights and we were leaving on a flight the next day. The only down side was the noise at night but it is the town of Jaco and it is a party town so if you come to party, you're in the right spot! The condo was very beautiful and modern. Water pressure in the showers not so good and water temp. fluctuates quite a bit but other than that, a perfect place to stay!"

Jaco Travel Tips

Jaco Beach Rentals in a Sleepy Beach Town

Jaco was once the archetypal beach town where you would find surfers lining the waves, others sleeping on the beach, and more walking around shirtless in just board shorts. Once word got out about hidden area and the surfing to be found there, Jaco Beach rentals became premiere destinations. Surfers from all over the world spend weeks at Jaco resorts to ride the high waves.

Vacations in Costa Rica at Jaco Beach are usually in Puntarenas Province on the Pacific Coast. Jaco is in central Costa Rica less than two hours from San Jose.

Jaco Resorts for International Surfing

Surfing is what draws most tourists to Jaco resorts, yet the town does not lack fun. There are several bars, restaurants, and places to visit but on the whole, vacations in Costa Rica to Jaco are all about the surfing. The waves are high and unyielding which means swimming is dangerous and riptides frequent the waters. However, for those who do not surf, Jaco beach rentals can still be great places to visit.

Vacations in Costa Rica at Playa Hermosa and Herradura

It is true that Jaco's water is less than perfect for swimming but Playa Hermosa and Playa Herradura which are within six miles of Jaco are great for swimming. Playa Hermosa has an international surf convention each year and Playa Herradura is another top surf beach. Both the beaches are great for sunbathing, horseback riding, and enjoying the view of the Pacific Ocean. Vacations in Costa Rica can also be about eco-tourism with canopy tours, jungle trips, and hiking if you want to get away from the beach for a while.

When to Visit Jaco Beach Rentals

The best time to visit Jaco beach rentals is from January to April. These months offer the driest season. September and October are the rainiest months which you might want to avoid if you really want to see and experience Costa Rica. At other times of the year, the rainfall can come and go so you can expect to find Jaco resorts somewhat busy.
