  • Excellent maintained condo in a great complex!

    "Best vacation ever! Lots of activities to do as a family (horse backing riding, zip lining, ATVing, etc.) Great location with beautiful grounds and lots of restaurants near by and shops. The staff at the complex is excellent and friendly! The people in Costa Rica were friendly, helpful and great to be around."

  • Bahia Azul oceanfront penthouse

    "We just returned from our 4th trip to Jaco, and tried another condo on the beach at Bahia Azul. We were very happy with the beachfront location, and received a great owners discount on VRBO through Faith, who is the on site manager. We had some initial check in problems with the front desk people who don't speak much English, but after they called Faith, she smoothed out their confusion and met us at the condo to answer all our questions. The folks that live at Bahia Azul treated us like family, and we had a great time . I really recommend this condo if you like to be on the beach, and also have a huge pool. We plan to come back with our friends, and share the 2 bedroom this winter."

  • Amazing...

    "One word....Amazing! We all had an amazing time in CR. we made last minute plans, and Fred was very accommodating and helpful. The condo was absolutely perfect. The location was excellent. We overlook BOTH the ocean in the distance, and the pool right below us. We had an exciting week and kept very busy ; zip lining, hiking to the water falls, and horseback riding on the beach with HENRY. Please ask for Henry, he is so sweet, and very good to the horses. That coming from someone who swore never to be near a horse, let alone ride one. The kids (ages 14 & 11) had a blast mostly playing in the pool. We did rent a car at the airport. FYI the insurance you HAVE to get for your rental is crazy expensive. I would pass on the car next time. Plus you need GPS too. Can't say enough about this won't be disappointed. We hope to be back!"

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.
