    Live "La Pura Vida" in Jaco

    With gorgeous beaches and lively nightlife, Jaco lives up to its reputation as Costa Rica's first major resort town. Over the years, it has lured a community of sun-bronzed surfers, North American expats and enterprising locals. It's no Costa Rican eco-retreat, but you'll find plenty of open-air market stalls, lively bars and fantastic surf breaks. Laidback vibes and modern amenities make it a favorite with families. Jaco vacation rentals sweeten the deal, with sparkling pools, spacious living areas and knockout views.

    Eco-adventures in Jaco

    Fringed by silver sand, Jaco Beach is a favorite with sun seekers. If waves are a priority, grab a board and head to Hermosa Beach, where rolling breaks attract a stream of local surfers. When it comes to wining and dining, it's hard to beat Jaco Walk, a charismatic square lined with artisan cafes, craft breweries and trendy eateries. After dark, the outdoor terraces are crisscrossed with twinkling fairy lights. Jaco is also a great base for eco-tours. You can kayak through monkey-ridden mangroves, zip line over the rainforest canopy, horseback ride on the beach, rappel down waterfalls and more.

    Crocodile watching in Jaco

    For intrepid travelers, Jaco vacation rentals are a gateway to a string of national parks. Head north and you'll hit Carara National Park, a lush nature reserve brimming with poisonous dart frogs and scarlet macaws – not to mention the infamous crocodiles that lurk in the Tarcoles River. You can also daytrip to Pura Vida Gardens and Waterfalls, a 50-acre oasis laced with scenic walking trails. Thanks to its mountainside setting, you'll also unlock spectacular views over the Pacific Ocean.

    Gear up for Jaco's Jungle Jam festival

    Winter is high season in Costa Rica and Jaco is no exception. From December to April, the beach resort hums with energy. It's a great time to hit the waves, explore the rainforest or simply relax on the beach. Craving a dose of la pura vida? Jaco vacation rentals put you just steps from the sand. You could also catch local festivals, such as Jungle Jam, a 4-day celebration of rock, reggae, funk and soul. If you don't mind the occasional afternoon downpour, consider visiting between May and November, when Costa Rica's rainforests explode in 1000 shades of green.

    Jaco sits on Costa Rica's Pacific coast, around 2 hours from San Jose. Year-round waves make it a magnet for surfers traveling the Central America route.
