  • Total Relaxation!

    "Our week spent at Casa Amarilla was wonderful. From the great caretakers to the fully furnished home. Our party included two couples and this home had plenty of room for all of us! Prior to our arrival we received detailed driving instructions that were most accurate. We did encounter a road closure on the new highway that delayed our initial arrival so be sure to check ahead on your arrival date for any possible road closures. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and a few things stood out. First and foremost is the friendliness of all the people we met. Everyone we met were more than happy to help this group of gringo's find their way around the area. The next welcome surprise was the sheer beauty of the area, from the frequent visits from the Macaws to the gorgeous sunsets each evening. One of the greatest days we had was with Tico Style Tours where we met Gino and his lovely wife Maria. In one day we visited Gino's private beach, went fishing, snorkeling and enjoyed fresh fruit and lobster on the beach. We ended the day with a beautiful oceanview sunset and a great dinner prepared by Maria and delivered to Casa Amarilla. Last but not least we would like to thank Patri for all the great information and ideas she provided prior to and during our visit that helped make our vacation a most comfortable and relaxing time. We hope to return to Costa Rica in the near future for a much longer visit Pura Vida Mike & Karla"

  • Best place to stay in Jaco!

    "Our family had such a great week and are so happy we chose Villa Nasua for our accommodations! The unit was larger than expected and far enough away from the tourist strip to be quiet and authentic, but still close enough to walk to everything we wanted to do. Jeanette made sure that every need was met, and she always had such a cheerful disposition! Condo is conveniently located next door to School of the World, where we took Spanish, surf, and yoga lessons. We always felt safe, even when walking around at night. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a quiet and convenient location to enjoy Jaco Beach!"

  • Great Location to stay and Love the pool!!!!

    "My family and I stayed at this great house for 2 weeks. There were 5 adults and 2 kids in are group and the house was great with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The kitchen was very well equipped and the large dinning table was large enough for all of us to eat together. The outside area was also great with and eating area that was great for the morning coffee. The pool was an added bonus and the complete family enjoyed it every day. Patri and the staff are very nice and helpful and the kids loved "Freddie" the cat that would come by every day to visit. The location of the house was nice as Tarcoles was very close and Jaco was only a 15 minute drive away. The beach area in front of the house was nice and always lots of birds to look at but the best part of the house location was the daily visits by the beautiful scarlet macaws!!!! We look forward in returning for our next family holiday."

  • On top of the world!

    "We were there for a bachelor party and could NOT have picked a better place for our fun times! The driveway is pretty insane as it climbs straight up the mountain, but once you arrive at the home and enjoy the spectacular panoramic views, it's all worth it! We even saw monkeys climbing around in the trees around the house! Iguanas were everywhere on the pool deck every morning. We had breakfast made for us everyday where the staff went above and beyond! There were so accommodating to our every need, from taxis to food to helping us with activities to do. I suggest getting many meals there if you can... We would love to come back one day! Owner (located in the states) was very responsive via email and telephone, which was important to us as well."

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.
