Easy access from San Jose Airport using one of the many very friendly and reliable shuttle service taxis and vans with the new modern toll highway is something that we highly recommend!! Leave the driving off your duty list on this vacation! The modern highway provides predictable speed limit ride - 1.5 hour from SJO airport in San Jose to Jaco!
Directions to Jacó...
The new toll road from San Jose to Caldera is now open! This new highway is the fastest route to Jacó from the airport and San Jose. There are several ways to access the new highway, and the best route depends upon where you are picking up your rental car. The rental agency should be able to provide a map to the highway. Once you're on the highway, it is a straight shot to Orotina. Just past the toll booth in Orotina, you exit right, take the cloverleaf to the rotunda and continue on the coast highway to Jacó. Depending where you access the highway and how many toll booths you hit, the toll costs run $3 - $5 total.
You can also take the old highway over the Aguacate Mountains. It is a steeper and more windy road, but quite scenic if you are acustomed to driving in Costa Rica. From the Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO), take the Bernardo Soto Carretera (Hwy 1) north toward San Ramon. Exit at La Garita and follow signs to Carara National Park, Atenas & Orotina. Continue on this road through La Garita and the towns of Atenas, San Mateo and Orotina. As you pass through Orotina, follow the signs to Jacó. Stay on this road until the toll booth. Just past the toll booth, exit right and follow the signs for Jacó. Drive time from the airport to Jacó is about 1-1/2 hours.
For those of you who would rather leave the driving to someone else, we have wonderful and trustworthy bilingual drivers that can pick you up at the airport or shuttle you anywhere in the country.
From almost any major airport in the US you can book a non stop flight to San Jose, Costa Rica and take reliable shuttle service from there to Jaco. Be in the condo and on the Pacific Ocean in 4-7 hours, depending on your point of origin. From Atlanta on Delta we are oceanfront in 5 hours!! But not any ocean, and not any place. This is Jaco, Costa Rica, and that is the Pacific Ocean. A world away and in paradise - in 5 hours! What are you waiting for? And yes, I had that same feeling the first time, and every time since when I see this beach from my balcony. I get that same rush and appreciate that this country is only 5 hours from my first home in Atlanta, Georgia.
Now that is a vacation worth experiencing at least once in a lifetime!!!
We will be glad to assist you in all aspects of your travel arrangements.

About the owner: Seeking eco lifestyle and adventure get away i ventured into Costa Rica and found my retirement transitional home away from home. I am willing to share it with you and will negotiate at every opportunity to get you in. Your interest and final stay in my place affords me a chance to come more often, defray some of my ownership costs, and hopefully make a few friends along the way!!
Why the Owner Chose Barrio Los Faroles, Jacó, Costa Rica:
Enjoy tropical paradise in its most powerful natural splendor! Jaco is an easy 1500 ' walk south but our northern beachfront is different in its natural setting and the rocks in the surfzone are obvious eye candy. But on the broader comparisons we have better SAND!! This is due to predominant ocean currents distributing lighter sediments and finer sands on the north end. The resultant larger tide transition beach gives us a better walking and activities base experience at low or high tide. There is also a large river and lagoon to the north, viewable in some of the pictures. The 7 foot tide change twice a day reveals dynamic natural hydrologic patterns and associated forage by waterfowl, wildlife and fisheries in the lagoon and adjacent mountain jungles.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We are located at the quiet north end, and now our new neighbor, Crocs is providing quality retail shops and 5 star restaurant options with a share in their world class pool center. Things are looking up with Crocs as our amenity center next door, and getting louder next door if thats what you want - but come home to The Palms!
