Jaco

4.3
Zipline · Beaches · Surfing, Windsurfing & Kitesurfing
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. Take stress off the schedule by using our Costa Rica attractions site.

Where to stay in Jaco

It's no surprise that the picturesque, curving beach remains the best place to stay in Jaco. Backpacker hostels, surf clubs, mid-range hotels, and luxury beach resorts jostle for space along the crowded coastline, with the heavy competition ensuring that there's something for everyone. Look beachside of the main drag--Avenida Pastor Diaz--for the biggest selection of options, and the best access to all the highlights of Jaco. For something more secluded, stay in a spa retreat perched upon the hill behind the city.
