Jaco Beach, Costa Rica
Jaco is Costa Rica’s wildest, most popular beach destination. Less than sixty miles from San Jose and just south of Puntarenas.
Now home to everything from high rise hotels to time share condos, from all night bars to suspicious looking casinos, from steak houses to taco stands, from tie-die vendors to snow cone carts, Jaco has experienced a boom in investment and expansion in recent years. The streets of Jaco seem to be a never ending string of bars, casinos, clubs, cafes, and cheap souvenir shops.
