  • Just what we needed!!!

    "We booked 7 nights in the Jr. Penthouse and thankfully, the condo was available and we were able to extend to 11 nights!!!! The condo was wonderful, well equipped, very comfortable and relaxing. The views of the mountains and ocean are fabulous and the pools are a pleasure! It is located within walking distance from just about anything you want to do, beach, bars (for adult cold beverages), shopping and restaurants. The Monaco grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The whole staff is wonderful and helpful with anything. The office can arrange tours, transportation, etc. if you need or want them to."

  • WOW!!

    "We are a family of six and always rent a home when we travel. Former reviewers have mentioned the close proximity to the beach, and the home is literally across a very narrow road from the beach. We had everything needed to make our stay feel as if we were at our own home. The security staff is first rate, the grounds were always keep clean, as was the house. If you are looking to stay in Playa Hermosa, this is the perfect home, just wear shoes on the beach as the black sand can become very hot."

  • Wonderful long weekend

    "Went down to Jaco for the first time with friends for a long weekend. The photos of the Penthouse really looked incredible, but we were simply blown away by the property once we arrived... The photos don't do this place justice! Million dollar views and simply amazing accommodations. From posh furnishings to incredible sunsets, you simply cannot ask for a better place to relax. The complex itself is very secure with ample security and every aspect of the complex was well maintained. The concierge service was terrific and very knowledgeable of things to explore in Jaco. The only negative was the fact that we didn't have more time to spend in this beautiful Jaco penthouse! I never write reviews, but this place was so incredible I felt compelled to do so..."

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.
