Recent Jaco property reviews

  • Sonidos Del Mar is the best

    "My friends and I rented both houses at Sonidos Del Mar for a full week. The house was absolutely perfect for our needs. It was only steps from the beach. It had the right amout of privacy and seclusion, but we could also walk down the beach to the main shopping area or take a $3.00 cab ride if we didn't feel like walking. Prior to booking Sonidos, I searched for several months to find the right house and could not find anything remotely close in value. Both the owner and the caretaker were extremely accomodating. The house was clean and cozy. You will not regret booking at Sonidos."

  • Best big family vacation place ever.

    "My wife & I took our children and grandchildren to Jaco and stayed in this villa which is oceanfront. The villa came with a young couple who waited on us. They made beds, did laundry, generally kept the place picked up, cleaned the pool. The husband arranged a charter fishing boat, horse back ride (the guides and horses came to our back door), set up surfing lessons for everyone in our group- again at our back door. The ocean was perfect for us beginners. He also set up a zipline tour. For a little extra the owner lined up a chef and assistant who did all the grocery shopping, cooking, appetizers, drinks, etc. He would do anything you ask. Ask the owner for Jose, the chef. You will be glad you did. We loved the place and hopefully will be back one day."

  • 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!"

  • Bungalow 14

    "This is the 3rd year in a row that my husband and I have stayed in Bungalow 14 at Hermosa Beach Bungalows in Costa Rica. We absolutely love our February vacation every year in Costa Rica, so much so that we keep adding on days and book our favorite bungalow 14 right after we leave for the following year. Bungalow 14 is centrally located with the pool just yards from your door and the beach is just a short walk across the beach. The bungalow has all the amenities you could want, a full kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer. A water cooler with drinkable water. The bungalow was recently redecorated and has 2 bedrooms. The bathroom is brand new with excellent water pressure in the shower. There is a nice porch in the front of the bungalow with a hammock and chairs where one can lounge or sit and eat. My husband and I highly recommend this bungalow. The staff is also very helpful with what every your needs are."

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.
