    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.
