    "We had such a wonderful time at this condo. Myself and three other girls went for a girls get away. We felt extremely safe and welcomed by the employees. They were all very helpful in getting taxis' whenever we needed them, even though everything was in walking distance to downtown the taxis were so cheap we couldn't pass it up. While in Jaco we did the ATV tour with jaguar tours, zip-lining with canopy vista, and a day trip to Manuel Antonio park. We enjoyed all of our adventures. I would recommend anyone to stay at Bahia Azul, Jody was so helpful and made the process of booking so simple."

  • WOW!!

    "We are a family of six and always rent a home when we travel. Former reviewers have mentioned the close proximity to the beach, and the home is literally across a very narrow road from the beach. We had everything needed to make our stay feel as if we were at our own home. The security staff is first rate, the grounds were always keep clean, as was the house. If you are looking to stay in Playa Hermosa, this is the perfect home, just wear shoes on the beach as the black sand can become very hot."

  • Beautiful location, excellent service, great views!!

    "Great place nice decorations inside the unit as well as patio. The pool was another favorite part. And the location can't be beat, half water half jungle. There was also a very cute puppy playing in the courtyard from another tenant that we got to play with while by the pool. The beds and showers were another huge plus, very high end. Also the guards were very nice and helpful made me feel safe 24 hours a day. Thanks again to the ownerd it doesn't get much better than this unit as well as how easy they were to work with"

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.
