Visit Jaco Costa RIca

January 7, 2016 by DayStar Staff

Visit Jaco Beach on Costa Rica’s Beautiful Central Pacific Coast!

The Central Pacific remains one of the most popular destinations for vacations in Costa Rica.  Jaco, Herradura, Esterillos, Punta Leona, Hermosa all offer something for everyone.  While Jaco is central to it all featuring worldclass sportsfishing and surfing, golfing, beautiful beaches, and countless tours and activities. You can take an ATV trip through the jungle and explore the hidden waterfalls scattered throughout the region or zipline over the rainforest canopy for a dose of adrenaline coupled with the vibrant natural surroundings. Close to two of the major pacific coast marinas, there are also several options to get some world class sport fishing in during your visit.

Jaco Beach

Is truly the hub of the Central Pacific.  Located just over one hour from San Jose, it offers plenty of services for everyday living.  Banks, grocery stores, clinics, pharmacies, restaurants, even a cinema and performing arts theater.  It is the nearest beach to the city and international airport. It features the regions largest selection to choose from for both hotels and vacation rentals, including a number of direct beachfront options.  Because of its localized infrastructure, amenities and central location its common for vacationers to make Jaco their home base as they explore and tour the rest of the Central Pacific. We were also home to the 2016 ISA International Surf Games.

Rookies.  Not sure which area to choose?  It’s a great spot to start and explore the rest of Costa Rica. Taxi’s are readily available and usually about $2 to get anywhere in town from your condo.


is located just a couple miles to the south.  Hermosa Beach has a more rustic charm and is a favorite for the serious surfer, as the year round waves are considered some of the best in Central America.  The serious pros surf Hermosa, these waves are not for beginners.


is just a 20-30 minute drive south of Jaco.  A bit more secluded but you’ll still find a few botique hotels and restaurants in the area.  The Esterillos area also has excellent surfing, and some of the area’s most beautiful beaches.


located just a few miles north of Jaco, is home to the Los Suenos Resort.  The draw to this region is naturally Los Suenos, but others also like the proximity to both Jaco and the golf course and marina.
