We came to live in Costa Rica after living in Asia for a few years. We are in love with Costa Rica; both the central valley and the beach. Ticos have to be the happiest, friendliest people in the world and it is fun to live among them! Ask for my articles on why Ticos are happy.
FOREST purchased this Condo in 2013
Why FOREST chose Barrio Los Faroles
Tres Regalos is on the very north end of Jaco Beach, so is away from the main area, yet near enough to easily get to all the shops, services, and eateries. MAS POR MENOS is the best super in town. Jaco is the nearest good beach town from the Central Valley, traveling on CR's only autopista. Tres Regalos is next door to Crocs Resort and Casino, which has three restaurants and other attractions. Tres Regalos is ten minutes drive to The Automercado, an upmarket supermarket, and Los Suenos, the most luxurious golf course condo enclave and marina in Central America. The charter fishing fleet sails from Los Suenos.
What makes this Condo unique
In front of the condo is a fine long beach for walking, bike riding, running, surf fishing, surfing, boogey boarding, and of course, swimming. The salt water pool and whirlpool are very beneficial for the skin. You will enjoy crossing a stream to Monkey Beach, where you may find yourselves alone. Yet, you are only five minutes from the pool and shower. For those who wish to be more active, the jungle and animals of Manuel Antonio Park are an hour away, and the volcanoes at Poas and Lake Arenal can be reached in a few hours. Carara National Biological Reserve is one half hour, and Monteverde Cloud Forest is two hours away. Charter fishing boats can be hired at Los Suenos wharf, ten minutes away. Los Suenos also has three fine restaurants, with fine dining and a golf course, where you can exercise your credit card!

The condo was lovely but it was Forest and his generosity of information and prompt replies to our messages that enhanced our vacation experience before we even set foot in this beautiful country, as well as during our stay. So best host ever. We won't hesitate to recommend renting a condo from him.
Wow, gracias for the kind words. Like the title, too.
Hope you reserve again with Host a Rica!
Tell everyone that the rainy season, or as named by the tourist folks, The Green Season, may be the best.
A piece of paradise!!!
This property is absolutely beautiful!! The condo is very spacious and everything is well appointed. We spent lots of time just sitting out on the balcony listening to and watching the waves crash against the rocks. It was just close enough to the main road but far enough away to not have to deal with the crowds. We saw scarlett Macaws, monkeys, and a sloth just across the inlet beside the condo. I would definitely return to this property.
Thanks for your fine review, and glad you enjoyed your stay in our condo on the tropical Pacific. You are very welcome to come again.
Sounds like you saw lots, just around home! I am sure you saw the iguanas on the roof and on the grass near the pool, too. Some repeat guests feed them lettuce, which they enjoy snatching up.
Your Host, Forest
The trip could not have been more wonderful, from the place, to the pool, to the beach and the town. We always love our time in Jaco and will always stay here. Great communication, great accommodations.
Dave, many thanks for your review. Your Condo by the tropical Pacific will be ready for your future stays!
Your Host, Forest
Beautiful condo and views
The owner was VERY helpful with great information on local restaurants, attractions plus groceries and the amazing fruit market. Condo view was awesome and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
Gracias, Jerald, for your speedy and great review. Hope that you get a yearning to return to the tropical central Pacific real soon. I will be ready to reserve for you. Maybe try the green season, May to November, when the foliage is at its best. Only short afternoon showers, usually, and no one stops what they were doing for long. It is a warm rain, anyway! Great time for a beer on the balcony and a siesta.
Glad you found my info mails helpful.
Your Host, Forest
Outstanding, with spectacular views!
502 South is a wonderful property, with absolutely breathtaking views of the Oceano Pacifico! Tres Regalos is a small, high-quality condominium complex at the very north end of Playa Jaco (next to Croc's Casino), and also features an outstanding salt water pool. 502S is a well-appointed two-bedroom unit, with very comfortable king-size beds in both bedrooms. The kitchen and living room areas are comfortable -- and the outdoor patio is the real highlight, particularly at sunset (about 5.45 pm every night). Owner Forest is very knowledgeable about Costa Rica, and provided numerous emails in advance of our visit regarding things to do and enjoy in the Jaco area. For first-time visitors to Costa Rica, Forest has also written an easy-to-read book about life in CR entitled "Tarantulas in the Pool", available on Amazon. We highly recommend both the condo, and the book! We will be back. PURA VIDA! 😎�
Gracias for writing such a thoughtful review! I am very pleased that you enjoyed your two months stay on the tropical sea. It will be my pleasure to reserve 502 S for you again.
"Mi condo es su condo!"
Your Host, Forest
Beautiful and well equipped 2 bedroom condo in Jaco beach. Very easy access to everything, secure parking and really nice grounds.
We were there over the Christmas holidays and enjoyed the beach access and the kids loved swimming in the river beside.
Our host was fantastic, sent us tones of information and made it very easy for all of us.
I recommend this place and will definitely return!
Muchicimas gracias for your fine review, Stephane. Your condo on the tropical Pacific awaits your return. Some of our favorite guests are Canadians looking to thaw. Maybe try the green season, May to November, when the coast is less crowded and the rates are favorable for air and for 502 S also. Forest
