  • Fantastic

    "I am writing this review while enjoying a delicious cup of Costa Rican coffee listening to the birds and waves - and sitting on the couch of this fantastic rental! Sherri-Lee (the owner) you were just wonderful to deal with, thank you for making booking our first private condo such an easy and stress free experience. The location is GREAT! We are right on the beach where we have surfed and relaxed every day. Cab rides into town are no more than $3 American and we have also walked many times (15 minutes or so). Its peaceful and quiet, the staff at Paloma Blanca and Daystar has been just wonderful and it feels very safe. The condo itself has a VERY comfortable king sized bed and couch built for lounging. The kitchen has all the utensils we needed including some Tupperware containers which came in very handy for our day trips. I also didn't realise before getting here - but there is a full laundry room which has come in very handy for washing beach towels and some clothes we have gotten dirty on all of our adventure trips. We are here with 4 other couples who have rented other units in the complex also and the walk out to the pool made things really easy! It was just my husband and I staying, but the unit would have comfortably fit two couples. The second bedroom has its own flat screen and double bed, plus a full second washroom in addition to the ensuite. For the price, you cant beat it! If you're in to surfing, Tortuga Surf School sets up right in front of the complex and offers amazing surf lessons and board rentals - and also let us use their beach loungers and umbrellas. Tours and activities we took from here included - Jose's crocodile tours (we actually got to touch a giant one), Tortuga island (absolutely beautiful and super fun, but don't get too excited about the snorkeling), zip lining, and rappelling down 300 feet of waterfalls in the rain forest. All were able to pick us up from our front gates. Also - the food here has been FANTASTIC! We have tried to stick to local Costa Rican places and avoid the americanized ones and we haven't had a meal yet that wasn't great, and well priced. If I'm ever lucky enough to come back to this beautiful place I would rent this unit again in a heartbeat, and strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to explore Jaco and Costa Rica! Thanks again!"

  • November 2014 at La Flor

    "Our group included six adults. La Flor was perfect for our group. Separate AC controls in each bedroom is a good feature. We rented a van but could have managed without it. It's an easy walk into town with restaurants and grocery and other stores. Megan was a great help arranging for ziplining, ATV tour, and catamaran. Pick up at the. gate for the tours was very convenient. We definitely will return and will recommend La Flor to our friends."

  • Great getaway

    "Having lived in Jaco in 2012, my husband and I are fairly aware of current accommodation options in the area. We chose Corteza del Sol for our last trip back because it is a great location with great amenities at an unbeatable price. The condo was simple, but beautiful! It had everything we needed and more. We also love the location just outside of downtown - it's so peaceful and perfect for anybody looking for some rest and relaxation. The pool is beautiful and not crowded at all. In fact, we usually had it to ourselves. Though I never feel unsafe in Costa Rica, Corteza del Sol has a great security team that would make even the most nervous travelers feel comfortable. My husband and I will definitely stay here again in the future!"

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.
