Jaco Beach, Jaco

#1 of 10 in Parks in Jaco District
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.

  • 3 min walk from the main restaurant and hotel area, sandy no big rocks, wave’s good for beginner surfers, hard to swim , ok to walk/float in shallows. Gets very hot in March. Most come out 1-2 hour...  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.
