  • Best place to stay in Jaco!

    "Our family had such a great week and are so happy we chose Villa Nasua for our accommodations! The unit was larger than expected and far enough away from the tourist strip to be quiet and authentic, but still close enough to walk to everything we wanted to do. Jeanette made sure that every need was met, and she always had such a cheerful disposition! Condo is conveniently located next door to School of the World, where we took Spanish, surf, and yoga lessons. We always felt safe, even when walking around at night. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a quiet and convenient location to enjoy Jaco Beach!"

  • Great time at Jaco

    "My family had great two weeks at Greg's condo. It's bright, big and cozy. There are several pools at the property and the ocean just few steps away. The long Jaco beach is a beautiful place to go for a walk. The part near the condo was very flat and save for our kids who loved jumping on the waves. The managing company Daystar is doing an awesome job to keep you comfortable out there. We were really pleased with their response to our needs. There were one negotive experience with our tour to Tortuga Island they sent us to that was operated by Bay Island Cruises. After the tour we complained to Daystar and Lupi one of the representatives personally came to the condo next morning to apology for the third party service and presented us a bottle of wine. There is Canopy Lines at Jacob that everyone should try. We had a fabulous experience with those guys who run it that made us laughing every minutes we spent with them. Rent a car and go to Poas volcano and Manuel Antonio park that another two things we really enjoyed in Costa Rica. Don't miss the crocodile river near Carara Park. Park near the bridge and walk to tge middle of it to see big and small crocodiles in the river. No hesitation that I recommend this place to our friends."

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.
