  • Jaco on the beach

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Property manager was excellent. The location is ideal---steps from beach and within walking distance of downtown. Very quiet at the villa. Security very friendly. We hated to leave."

  • Beautiful Condo!

    "We very much enjoyed staying at Monaco Condos. The owners were very accommodating as we only needed to stay for one night. Most VRBO's have a minimum stay of three or more nights and we were leaving on a flight the next day. The only down side was the noise at night but it is the town of Jaco and it is a party town so if you come to party, you're in the right spot! The condo was very beautiful and modern. Water pressure in the showers not so good and water temp. fluctuates quite a bit but other than that, a perfect place to stay!"

  • Pure Paradise!!

    "My family and I stayed in this Penthouse condo for a week in mid-May. Everything was absolutely AMAZING!!! It was so spacious for our family of four. Furnishings and amenities were very nice. It was great to have a washer and dryer in the unit for all of our beach towels! My husband was thrilled to be able to watch ESPN :) The weather was definitely hot, but the unit was very comfortable with the constant ocean breezes coming through. We kept the front folding doors and side sliding doors open 24/7 and with the ceiling fans on there was a fabulous breeze. It was so nice! The bedrooms are air conditioned which was also great :). And there were never any bugs to deal with at all. The condo is situated close to everything (restaurants, activities) making it convenient. However, it is not right in the very center of it all, giving us the opportunity to really RELAX since we were located in the quiet part of the beach!!! Watching the sunset from our private rooftop patio was breathtaking. This was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. We all had a great time and cannot wait to book our next trip to this penthouse in La Paloma Blanca. Thank you for providing us with such an amazing experience!!"

  • Great place to stay

    "We stayed here for 7 night in August 2014. Loved it. House was as advertised and very comfortable. Complex was very safe and always had at least 2 guards there. Town is close but not too close. Beach was clean and safe and beautiful. AC in the house worked great and all other necessary items were there. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in area. Thanks"

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.
