Jaco Beach, Jaco

#1 of 10 in Parks in Jaco District
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. Jaco Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

  • Jaco Beach is very nice for walking and enjoying the sounds of the beach, but not swimmable while we were there. We experienced beautiful sunsets from the beach.  more »
  • A wide black sand and pebble beach. Chair/umbrella rentals, along with surf lessons. The day we were there had one meter waves with a good break.  more »
  • Average beach nothing special. It is clean and close to city
  • Cool beach in a cool town. Great surfing spot. Highly recommend staying near here if you go to west coast of Costa Rica.
