  • 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!"

  • 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"

  • Great Place, Great Location

    "Thank you Megan for sharing your house and making our vacation so special. The listing and picture were very accurate and the property was clean and well maintained. The property is in a gated comunity and I felt very safe at all times. The neighbors are great and we enjoyed visiting with them in the pool. We love the little beach bar Clarita's, less than a block from the house. Have Megan arrange for a drive for $110 one way from San Jose. We had schedule for a rental car from San Jose to Jaco and much to our surprise, reserving doesnt mean much to most rental agencies. There are rental care agencies in Jaco. So many tell you to shop for groceries in San Jose, but not necessary. There is a large grocery store in Jaco with reasonable prices, I would highly recommend using Megan for setting up your tours, rental cars and your ride from San Jose. She has great connections with the community and was able to book things for us that were not available anywhere else. For things to do: I would recommend off shore fishing. The company we used was Dreamworks with Captain Tom. It was a fishing trip of a lifetime. Me and my husband caught 17 sail fish and one Mahi-Mahi in one day. Captain Tom and his two mates worked very hard to make our day special and they know the waters well. The beach bar cooked our fish for $8.00 per plate with side dishes. It was super yummy! I would also recommend Manuel Antonio, but hire a local guide. Well worth the money."

  • Dream Vacation

    "In January 2014, my friend and I had the great pleasure of renting a condo at Tres Regalos, Jaco, CR. This was my second visit, having spent time there a year ago, as well. What a perfect place! The ocean view from the front patio offered our group privacy from, yet close proximity to, the beautiful pool. Other residents in the complex were friendly and ready to visit around the pool, giving the entire complex a relaxed, small-town community feel. The condo was lovely, clean, and spacious, with dishes, towels, sheets, and much more, all provided. The condo owner provided us with all that we could possibly want in our home-away-from-home. We appreciated the security of the built-in safe for valuables but never felt a sense of worry for our belongings at all. Condo Managers, Aude and Bertrand, went above and beyond, in providing friendly, prompt, courteous service. I know that everyone in the complex is delighted with the new management! Aude and Bertrand made themselves readily available for anyone who had a request, and they responded immediately to the best of their ability. My computer had keyboard issues, and Bertrand was even ready to help me with that!!! My only wish, now, is that one day soon I get to return. Loretta"

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.
