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.

Ideal for…

Those who don’t want a car, with everything in town accessible by bike and foot.
Groups and families.  Accommodations, conveniences and access make it perfect for groups and families.
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.

    We have been returning to Jaco, staying at Bahia Azul for 4 years. Any time we have an issue, whether it be a leaking fridge or safe not working, DayStar staff always resolves the issues within 1/2 hour to an hour. We have booked our transportation from San Jose airport to Jaco through DayStar and have always had good vehicles and nice drivers. Thank you DayStar, looking forward to next February!

    I rented a 4 bedroom condo in Diamante del Sol right on the water from Daystar. The view from the condo and layout was beautiful.Mario and everyone else at Daystar made me feel very confident about my reservation, including the money I paid up front. I know sometimes when dealing in a country you may not be used to, you become hesitant, but rest assured, with Daystar everything was perfect at arrival.We got the keys about 5 minutes after we arrived and went on our way to the condo, which was perfect. I've stayed in many places in Jaco Beach previously, this condo building really was the best view and most importantly, value.I look forward to going again with some friends and staying in the same building.Enjoy.

    Absolutely perfect location in Jaco just across from the beach, and the condo is very nice. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
