Jaco

A seaside resort town with plenty of entertaining distractions along its attractive coastline, Jaco has long been a major tourist destination on the central Pacific coast. The long main beach draws surfers and backpackers, built up in places with beach bars, surf shacks, and tour company offices. North American expats abound in this purpose built coastal resort, with most of the businesses in town catering to an international audience, with souvenir shops, tour operators, and trinket stalls lining the main strip. Partiers take the trip to Jaco to sample the lively and youthful nightlife. Make Jaco central to your Costa Rica travel plans using our Costa Rica trip generator.
