Trip Planner: Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Puntarenas / Garabito Municipality / Jaco District / Jaco / Jaco Beach
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 Reviews
Long beach, great for surfers but be careful for under tow! Had not been back in 30 years, more developed, but still have lots of space to walk and relax. more »
We didn’t really know where to go in Costa Rica to be by the sea so booked an Air BnB here. Don’t bother. Carry on for another hour down the coastal road to Manuel Antonio. It’s much nicer!! We ended.... more »
To be sure, this beach is famous for a reason. Breathtaking beauty, excellent restaurants and hotels nearby. I highly recommend.
Very long and clean beatch with middle big waves for any surf skill. Many surf schools too. Amazing sunsets and couple of very nice bars restaurants.
