  • The pictures do not do this place justice!!!

    "Our stay was beyond amazing and we could not of asked for a better vacation in Jaco, Costa Rica. Stephanie and her husband treated us like family and made sure our stay exceeded our expectations. Our vacation was relaxing and adventurous all at the same time. We ate every meal on the gorgeous balcony and feel asleep to the sounds of the ocean. The amenities are endless, you could never leave the complex and be satisfied. Our family of five ventured out and went to the National Park, horse back riding, shopping, and sight seeing. Thank you Stephanie and John for ensuring our return to Jaco and staying in your Oceanfront Penthouse. Love Faith, Travis, Travis Jr, Mary, and Melissa :)"

  • Great getaway

    "Having lived in Jaco in 2012, my husband and I are fairly aware of current accommodation options in the area. We chose Corteza del Sol for our last trip back because it is a great location with great amenities at an unbeatable price. The condo was simple, but beautiful! It had everything we needed and more. We also love the location just outside of downtown - it's so peaceful and perfect for anybody looking for some rest and relaxation. The pool is beautiful and not crowded at all. In fact, we usually had it to ourselves. Though I never feel unsafe in Costa Rica, Corteza del Sol has a great security team that would make even the most nervous travelers feel comfortable. My husband and I will definitely stay here again in the future!"

  • 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.
