  • Excellent maintained condo in a great complex!

    "Best vacation ever! Lots of activities to do as a family (horse backing riding, zip lining, ATVing, etc.) Great location with beautiful grounds and lots of restaurants near by and shops. The staff at the complex is excellent and friendly! The people in Costa Rica were friendly, helpful and great to be around."

  • 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!"

  • two life time freinds, Mike and Bob

    "1st Costa Rica Trip for Bob and I and it met all of our expectations the owner Eileen was such a big help with prep that we actually went on are own without the extra costs of tour guide add on costs. The reviews were accurate and the accomadations were excellent. We had such a great time that we changed our travel plans and stayed in the rain forest (rental car) and drove through the country. The Sky Trek zip line at Arenal Volcano is a must, we also entered the public access and enjoyed the hot springs at no cost. The food was out of this world everywhere in the country, but agree with Eillen on her Green Room in Jaco, get the special, salid with Tuna steak on top. Very special to all of the Day Star Employee's especially Eric at the Gate, Anthony our boat captain and first class crew, we made an under water movie of a sailfish that Bob caught one of many fish, and Eileen for all the information that really was the key to our whole experience. we also got special tickets for a return trip that is in the future. Big Thanks Mike"

  • My first time in Costa Rica....

    "...and this condo was perfect. Clean and accommodating. The staff kept the grounds spotless, location was great in south Jaco beach...close enough to walk to town, yet far enough out of the noise. Love that we could walk right from pool to beach. We would stay here again...no doubt!!"

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.
