  • Great for families

    "My family greatly enjoyed ourselves at this wonderful beachfront condo. We were two kids (age: 4 years and an infant), a grandfather, my wife and I. The stay was perfect, the view was beautiful, the pool was great, and the interior was wonderful. The kitchen was fully stocked and we cooked almost every meal. The local stores had everything we needed (tip: just buy local goods from the stores, anything imported from the US is overpriced and bad such as apples and grapes) The owners and property managers were very helpful from the moment we expressed interest and throughout the stay. The building is almost the last building on the north end of Jaco and is very quiet (but note that a casino will open up sometime in the near future). The best way to get around town is by taxi, which is only $2-3 one way. There is no need to rent a car (@ $60-100 a day including insurance)! Most people in the building were retirees, which was perfect for our family. For surfing, there is a school not far away (WOW Surf) that I took a lesson on. Get in shape before you try it!"

  • Week stay in Jaco during Green season

    "My wife and I with our 2 friends try to go to the Caribbean every year. This year we decided to try something different and picked Costa Rica on the Pacific side. I am usually reluctant to go to a place where we have no reccomendations from friends, but we decided to give it a try. The condo was large, clean, Well furnished and was facing the water. The management staff was attentive to all our needs as well as arranging for our airport transportation and excursions. The town of Jaco was one block away and all the people were friendly and helpful. Lots of choices to eat and easy to meld into the culture. If we go back to Jaco we would stay at the same complex again."

  • Awesome Family Vacation

    "We spent 8 nights at this wonderful tropical paradise. The condo grounds are well kept and the Property Manager Christian was very helpful in assisting us with the many activities we did during our stay there. I highly recommend this location as it is close to downtown as well as the beach and the rain forest is very close by."

  • Awesome Rental in Jaco

    "Me and my friends stayed here for 3 nights - and this condo is amazing. It was in excellent shape and extremely clean when we arrived. The bedding and linens were comfortable. The pool table is a nice touch. Photos really don't do this place justice. The living/dining areas are surrounded by windows/glass doors that reveal a panoramic view of Jaco Beach. The views only get better when you step out onto the HUGE wraparound balcony, which is perfect for hanging out and relaxing on. The location is unbeatable -- The pool area provides direct access to the beach; and the center of town (with the great restaurants and bars) is just a short block away. Best of all, Philip and Evelyn are a pleasure to work with. Booking the condo was a breeze. Plus they went above and beyond, helping make planning the trip more than easy -- from arranging our ground transportation to/from the airport, to recommending restaurants, bars, and reputable tour companies for day activities, their help took the stress out of planning our stay. Probably the best rental experience I've ever had."

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.
