  • 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."

  • ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!

    "Went to Costa Rica for the first time and What a trip. Moanco is the perfect location, you can walk anywhere and anything you want while there is just a short distance. The condo was AMAZING, wayyyyyy beyond our expectations. The staff was wonderful, they booked all of our excursions and day trips. I will definitely recommend staying at the Monaco and will be back."

  • Beautiful location, excellent service, great views!!

    "Great place nice decorations inside the unit as well as patio. The pool was another favorite part. And the location can't be beat, half water half jungle. There was also a very cute puppy playing in the courtyard from another tenant that we got to play with while by the pool. The beds and showers were another huge plus, very high end. Also the guards were very nice and helpful made me feel safe 24 hours a day. Thanks again to the ownerd it doesn't get much better than this unit as well as how easy they were to work with"

  • Jaco Beach Village Condo 1 BR

    "My hubby and I stayed in JBVC for 2 weeks Oct 18-Nov 1, 2014 and thororughly enjoyed our visit. Perfect for a couple since it was a one bedroom (which are difficult to find normally) on the ground floor. Plenty of storage in the condo along with a washer and dryer which worked perfectly. Grounds were very well kept and beautiful. It's a small complex which was nice. Hot tub was just steps from our sliding patio door along with the beautiful pool. Trees in the complex were always visited in the morning, sometimes afternoon by Scarlet Macaws which was always exciting. You can always hear them coming as they are really loud. Security guards were always visable. A great location......just minutes from town and no problem walking back after dark. Bicycle rentals are just up the street from JBVC. We have traveled to Mexico for the last 20 yrs and this being our first trip to CR, I was much impressed with the people of CR. You will be within walking distance of several beach bars to watch the beautiful sunsets each night. Make a stop at The Point Beach Bar (go left on the beach)....good food, good drinks. Ask for directions to Miro's Mountain when a hike sounds good. It's very interesting and FREE. It will be worth your effort. Dave, owner of the condo, was very easy to work with, promptly answered emails, and was happy to answer questions by phone. We did line up our RT transportation with Dave's Airport Rides who had increased his one way to $90 because of increase in gas prices. Once again, no problem with transportation. FYI for you newbies: when exiting after collecting your luggage at airport, stop at the duty free liquor shop to stock your condo. Very convenient! There were a couple of problems with our stay but nothing important enough to write about. Would I go back to CR? Would I stay at JBVC? You bet!"

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.
