  • Excellent home and accommodations.

    "Excellent home and accommodations, great neighborhood. I went with my family and my parents for 5 days, and have a really good time. The swimming pool is great we wanted to be there all the time. The house is very cleaned, excellent decoration, great appliances. We loved the BBQ area and the garden. The neighborhood is very quiet and safe. Danielle and Rebeca are really good people, a really good welcome and also pending of our necessities. We really loved Danielle's hospitality. Absolutely, we will come back again!"

  • Beautiful

    "We only stayed for 2 nights, wish it was more. Air, very comfortable beds, Tv with DVD movies, showers are great and an AWSOME view, what more could you ask for. The staff was very friendly. The only bad thing was the construction next door but we were not around in the day so by the time we got back they were leaving. If I ever go back to Jaco I would stay here again."

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.
