Car: Not Necessary

We refer to this little piece of paradise as our 'happy place'. My husband first traveled to Costa Rica in May of 2013. He was instantly taken and called to tell me he had found our second home. 5 months later he brought me down for our 17 year anniversary and I fell in love as well. When we brought our teenage daughters down for Christmas of the same year and couldn't drag them off their surfboards, we knew it was a done deal and began looking for a place of our own.

I can honestly say I've seen almost every property on the beach in this area and Jaco Beach Village is the best. Our unit is a 2 bedroom / 2 bath condo with every amenity you may need. The master bedroom has a queen size bed, a walk in closet with a safe, private bath and a door leading to the patio. The second bedroom has 2 queen size beds and plenty of closet space as well. The living room and dining area are beautifully furnished and the kitchen has everything you need (although I suggest taking advantage of the amazing food at the local restaurants and bars). Wifi and cable, including HBO, are available and all 3 TV's have SAP ability so many of the channels can be changed to English. There is also local phone service so that you can make reservations for dining or excursions or make arrangements for a driver to take you to the airport or excursions that are farther away.

Our favorite feature of the unit is the patio where you can enjoy your morning coffee with an ocean view. If you find that you don't feel like a walk on the beach at sunset just pour yourself a cocktail, have a seat and watch it from your patio! All of this can be enjoyed from the privacy of our small gated community with 24 hour security but we know you won't be able to resist venturing out to enjoy all that Jaco Beach and the surrounding areas have to offer.

Surfboards and lounge chairs can be rented at any one of several rental stations on the beach and the boards come complete with lessons at a VERY reasonable price. There are numerous restaurants and bars all within short walking distance both on the beach and in town (or you can take a cab to anywhere in Jaco for under $3). I highly recommend you take advantage of our 'A-Z To Do' list located in the unit filled with all of the best dining and adventures starting with All-Terrain buggy tours up to the waterfalls (you drive your own and follow the guide) and ending with Zip-Lining (upside down if you're daring enough)!

When you arrive in San Jose there are several ways to get to Jaco including by Taxi, a pre-arranged driver, or by bus. We have travelled by driver and by bus and have had nothing but great experiences. The bus takes a little bit longer but will cost you only $5 per person where the driver will cost you around $95 (plus tip) for up to four people usually (if you have more in your party make sure to specify that so they will bring a larger car) depending on the size of the car. The up side to a driver is that you can make a stop at the crocodile river on your way to Jaco and enjoy some mango ceviche or a fresh smoothie while watching the giant crocodiles from the bridge! My personal recommendation is to take a driver to Jaco so that you don't miss the crocodiles and then a bus back to the airport at the end of your trip. (Be sure and purchase your bus tickets the day before departure so that you can be assured an assigned seat.)

Upon your arrival at Jaco Beach Village you will be greeted by our property manager who will give you your keys and a tour of the property. He will also collect the $300 cash security deposit. At the time of your checkout he will do a quick inspection and, if all is in order, return your $300 cash security deposit to you. If you have any questions at all including who to call for a ride from the airport and the best airlines to take (in our opinion based on trial and error:) please do not hesitate. We hope you enjoy your stay and love our little 'happy place' as much as we do!

Year Purchased: 2014

About: My husband and I both grew up in Florida. My family owned several farms including a tomato farm, horse farm, and an orange grove. My mother's side of the family were fisherman hence my love of all things related to water. My husband's father was in law enforcement and his mother was a teacher and he spent many of his summers on his grandfather's farm. After working as a deputy and then a special agent in law enforcement for over 10 years my husband decided to go to law school. I worked as a speech-language pathologist and raised our girls while he attended law school. When he graduated we decided to go for it and hung out his shingle so to speak. Turns out it was a very good decision! I have since joined his firm as an investigator and we get to spend every day together. Our daughters are both active in sports playing soccer, volleyball, running track and cross country and of course surfing every chance they get. As a family we love to get out and do things on the adventurous side. Costa Rica is the perfect place for us and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Why Jaco, Costa Rica:
Costa Rica is a beautiful country and Jaco is a perfect fit for our adventure seeking, fun loving family! My husband speaks Spanish very well but my two teenage daughters and I are definitely beginners so the fact that English is spoken by many of the locals and transplants was a huge plus for us! I have travelled alone in Costa Rica and never had a problem finding someone I could communicate with easily. The currency is easy to figure out as well and most establishments will accept both American dollars and colones. (If you pay in dollars you will get colones in change) Another key factor for us purchasing in Jaco is the surfing! I have surfed in a few different locations including Florida's East coast and Hawaii and I can honestly say Jaco is my favorite! Now, my experience is somewhat limited but Jaco Beach surf has never disappointed me and if you are looking for a slightly larger surf we are only 5 minutes by cab to Playa Hermosa where they host the Backyard Surf Competition every Saturday afternoon! You would literally have to spend months in Jaco to be able to truly experience everything there is to enjoy here. Waterfall climbing, waterfall jumping, zip lining, white water rafting, hiking, river camping, bird watching, wild monkey feeding, crocodile tours, kayaking, paddleboarding, surfing, volcanoes, hot springs...the list goes on and on! Be mindful when planning a trip to CR....you may fall in love like we did and return again and again! Pura Vida!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We chose Jaco Beach Village #15 for many reasons. What's not to love about a place on the ocean with beautifully maintained gardens, a hot tub and pool with gorgeous surroundings to lounge around, 24 hour security in a small, cozy, gated community just a couple minutes walk from town? The hook for me though? The patio. You see I love my coffee and my wine and I now have the perfect spot with the perfect view to enjoy both! I can sit on my patio and watch my daughters surf in the morning while I enjoy my morning cup of java...or two or three. Then in the evening, on afternoons where I have surfed myself to exhaustion and simply don't have the energy left to walk on the beach at sunset, I can pour my husband and I a glass of vino and watch the sunset from our deck chairs while soaking up the pura vida!
