  • Totally Awesome Place

    "This place is amazing. Enjoyed the lush flowers and plants. The Rancho with the hammock is to die for and it is next to the pool. I really enjoyed your home for our vacation and want to thank you for opening it up for us. This place is a short walk to the beach and the middle of town. Rebecca was totally awesome. If there was a problem she had it fixed in 20 minutes. I highly recommend anyone to rent this place. I guarantee they will love it. Thank you again for giving us plenty of memories to reflect on for a very long time."

  • Fabulous Dream Getaway!

    "I stayed here during “the wet season” (early July 2009) and loved every minute of it! Every fixture and detail in the condo is brand new and sparkling from the granite countertops to cherry wood cabinets, multiple flat screen TVs, stainless steel appliances, and California king bed. Imagine waking up and showering in a stone shower with two separate faucets and glass frame, making a quick breakfast in a spacious kitchen that has everything you’d ever need, and walking literally five steps out of the ground floor sliding door into a cool blue bottom outdoor pool before you start your day. Don’t worry about cleaning up – the maid will come and tidy up while you’re gone. Go to the Jaco beach to surf, or take a quick cab ride to Herradura a few km away for calmer waters. Other activities I tried were horseback riding into the hills, zip lining through the mountains, and bird watching at dawn at Carrera National Park. Or if you’d like to take a day trip, consider going to easily accessible Manuel Antonio, rated one of the top beaches in Latin America and my literal vision of paradise. No matter what you do, you’ll look forward to coming “home to your condo to rest and recharge in luxury. Stay connected with bug free Wi-Fi and stop by the office to say hi to the staff to ask for a recommendation for lunch or dinner. The condo is in the heart of Jaco so you can easily walk to local shops and diners,[and even a very safe ATM steps away] but the cabs are so plentiful you will find them easily accessible if you are feeling lazy. Bring your lover, your friends, or your whole family to kick back, relax, and enjoy Costa Rica in style!"

  • Experiencia satisfactoria!!!

    "Excelente ubicacion en un barrio al Sur de Jaco sin ruido nocturno, con privacidad y acceso directo a la playa, las habitaciones muy confortables, bien equipada y con A/C en toda la casa, habitaciones y baños un poco deteriorados por el tiempo pero con facil arreglo. Servicio de limpieza diario bueno. Casa especial para familias y amigos que deseen pasarla en un ambiente privado y lleno de confort, villa grande pero no lujosa lo cual permite no estar preocupado con destruir algo que adorna.. la estadia de 5 noches fue muy bonita y relajante en Casa Cortes.."

  • 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."

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.
