Jaco

Jaco is the closest beach to San Jose, only 90 minutes from arriving in Costa Rica, you can be on the beach. Located halfway between San Jose and Manuel Antonio, Jaco is the spot for fun lovers and surfers. Jaco is in the top ten of Costa Rica's best beach destinations. Jaco provides lots of nightlife and easy to get to actives and adventures.

Jacó is Costa Rica's largest and most populated beach destination. It has high-rise condos, deluxe restaurants, and a vibrant nightlife. The town is set amidst beautiful hills and it maintains a healthy population of Scarlet Macaws. It is a short driving distance from many less developed and pristine beaches, including Hermosa, Herradura and Esterillos. Once threatened by pollution, the Jacó beach has become considerably cleaner as the city has adopted stricter environmental regulations. It has moved forward with zoning and water treatment standards to attract more visitors and is maintaining a sustainable balance with the surrounding biodiversity.
