Beach Nature / Park
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.
