Jaco Beach, Jaco
(2.4/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Stroll the dark sands of the long and spacious Jaco Beach, observing surfers riding the breakers at sea. As you explore the hive of recreational activities, you'll have opportunities to go horse riding along the beach or take on some surf lessons. Try your hand at thrilling sport fishing, with lots of big game fish in the ocean--especially marlin--or simply relax and watch vivid sunsets from the sand. Be wary of the sea, as the strong currents make it an unsuitable swimming spot for younger children. Plan to see Jaco Beach and other attractions that appeal to you using our Jaco itinerary maker.

  • This is one seriously beautiful beach, grey sand, nice steady breaks and the only thing that detracts are the concrete high rises behind it 
  • Jaco is growing up but still offers lots of fun. The beach is cleaner and more police. Central location. 
  • I went as a couple to spend a day relaxing and truth worth is a magnificent village to do nothing and forget everyday life very quiet and casual, super friendly people and attentive here there is no hurry and time does not exist without a doubt return is full of people that what motivates is to be in contact with nature
