About Sosan Fong
We live in Canada and we love to travel. Tropical is always our choice of destinations to escape from the long cold winter. Costa Rica is our favor destination. The climate is moderate and same temperature all year around. People are friendly. We recently purchased a beachfront condo located in Jaco Beach. We enjoy the sound of ocean and the privacy, but within walking distance to Downtown Jaco. We like to share our beautiful vacation home with you. Please send any questions that you may have during your vacation planning. If I don't have an answer, I will definately find it for you. Our property manager can help you to arrange any tours that you would like to experience while you are in Jaco.
Sosan Fong purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Sosan Fong chose Barrio Los Faroles
We had traveled to Costa Rica a few years ago and were so impressed with everything that Costa Rica had to offer. We considered buying a condo at that time but we were unsuccessful in our quest. After that we traveled and shopped for a condo in Belize, Hawaii, and parts of the United States. We chose to go back this year to once again to look for a condo in one of our most favourite areas of Costa Rica, Jaco Beach! Jaco Beach has everything, it is centrally located roughly 70 to 80 minutes from the San Jose Airport. It allows for easy access to much of Costa Rica including most of the countries National Parks. Even getting over to the Nicoya Peninsula is easy by boat. Jaco Beach offers a beginner to intermediate surfing beach and less than a 10 minute drive takes you to Hermosa Beach which is one of the best surfing beaches in the world. Jaco offers good infrastructure with all amenities close by. There are lots of activities that are within easy driving distance from the condo. Shopping and restaurants are less than a 10-15 Minute walk. Tres Regalos was the best built building with a great style and overall low number of units in the complex which is very unique in comparison to most other projects we looked at while trying to find the right place. Only 7 of the owners have decided to make their private units available for vacation rentals, each condo is individually decorated by the owners. What this means is that there are never 30 of the units occupied at the same time.
What makes this Condo unique
Location, location, location, on the north end of one of the best beaches in Costa Rica but close to everything when you want it. The staffs are amazing, absolutely second to none. With the developer and his wife owning and living on the property, it makes for a very well managed and well kept property. They take personal pride in the development. The pool is incredible and unlike anything we have seen in Costa Rica. Enjoy the swim up bar including the stools built into the pool bottom while leaning on the granite bar. Cross the river over to Monkey Beach to enjoy our private secluded one way in one way out beach where you can spend the day swimming, surfing, fishing, or sleeping beneath one of the many almond trees. The short walk to town will take you by many small and inexpensive restaurants with great food and very friendly people. Taxi's are numerous and can be flagged down for a quick ride to and from town for $1 to $2 dollars each way if you are tired or the heat is a bit too much. Due to Tres Regalos slightly off the beaten path and away from all the action, it is amazingly quite. You will be happy you are so close to town but happier still yet that you chose the Tres Regalos, the best of both worlds!! The Salt water pool is surrounded by a natural material called Coralina shell stone . This gorgeous material matches the pool and whirlpool and does not get hot which keeps the pool a constant temperature. Bathroom counter tops have under lighted Onyx Private Chefs are available for indoor and outdoor parties or wedding and personal shopping available while you relax poolside. Great neighbours/owners make for a wonderful vacation.

Sosan and Brian have one of the nicest properties in Jaco. The condo was 1st class, Luis and his staff were awesome, the location and view were perfect. We spent a week at the Westin, I wish we had rather stayed at Sosans VBRO. Thanks for a beautiful experience!!
Thanks for your nice words. The view to the Pacific Ocean is incredible beautiful.
I hope to see you and your wife again soon when you are ready to visit Jaco
Gorgeous Jaco Beachfront Property
Sosans condo was more than we could have hoped for. Every kitchen amenity that you could think of was included and the master bedroom with its own oceanview deck was fantastic. Everything in town was within walking distance and all of the security and maintenance people could not have been nicer. So if there was one thing that we were disappointed in it was the beach itself.
Although very long, it is also covered with small rocks so make sure that you wear water shoes. Also the ocean is so rough it is almost impossible to swim. So if you enjoy sitting by a beautiful pool instead of on the beach and enjoy conversing with some very nice regulars, this place with be ideal for you.
Hi Robert. Thanks for reviewing your stay so that our future renters know what to expect.
Agreed, the north side of Jaco beach is very sandy and big wave for surfing. I should have told you to walk down to the south end, less coarse sand and smaller wave. That’s where the surfing school located. It is still need to be a strong swimmer to swim, in my opinion. Well, you need to come back and check out the water in the south end, when you are ready for another adventure.
Enjoyed the Atmosphere.
Very comfortable and friendly.
Thanks Ron for choosing my home as your vacation home.
I hope you enjoyed Jaco and come back anytime when you are ready for another adventure.
Loved our stay here. Clean, comfortable, and safe. Right on the beach and close enough to all the Jaco establishments. An easy walk or a ridiculously cheap cab ride to town. 4 Bucks for 4 of us. We felt very safe here. 2 security guards on duty at all times,
I'd like to return some day
Thank you Derek. I am glad you enjoyed Christmas in Costa Rica. Love to have you and your family staying at our place. Come back anytime.
We stayed for one week at this condo. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived as the condo is nicer than it appears in the pictures. But by far the best feature of this unit is the very large balcony, which faces the ocean, and from which you get the most stunningly gorgeous sunsets. The kitchen in the condo is fully equipped. The showers are large and the beds comfortable. There is ample storage area. The condo complex is located at the very north end of Jaco, away from the crowds and downtown. It is a half hour walk or quick $3 to $4 cab ride to downtown. The security guards at the front gate always called for a cab for us because there was no cell phone available for use in the unit. Th only surprising thing was the number of cock roaches when we got back to the condo at night after supper. We have always found roaches in Caribbean locations, but it was a nightly ritual to see who could stomp the most roaches. But we would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Jaco.
Hi Jeanne, thanks for choosing our condo as your vacation home.
I am sorry to hear about the cockroaches. I wish I was advised so that I can ask the property manager to handle and investigate the problem. You are my first renters after a very long time, and therefore, the cockroaches are not attracted to our condo from food. I requested a cleaning prior to your arrival and the maid has scheduled to clean regularly.
Be honest, we had never seen them when we were down in our condo. I will bring it up with the HOA and property management and find a solution to eliminate this issues.
Thanks again to stay with us and we hope to see you again soon when you are ready for another adventure.
Sosan & Byron
PS Just wanted to let you know we had the fumigation done in Feb. There is no more cockroaches in my condo. Thanks for letting me know so I can deal with it efficiently.
There are so many activities that you can do while you are in Jaco. Relax at your beautiful vacation home, sun tanning at the only salt water pool at Tres Regalos in Jaco, walk to the Monkey beach next to the property that is like your own private beach. Here are some ideas of the most popular activities to fill your days. You can find tour operators in the main street downtown. Compare the price and pick the one you like. You can also ask Leo Plumley (the Property Manager) to arrange for you.
