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
Black sand isn’t my favorite as it is not pretty light and soft. This beach is really great once you get the hang of it. The tide goes out so far it’s unbelievable! Great to walk the day away... more »
Jaco is a great place to rest and relax as you can walk to most places in town, the sunsets here, you can watch from anywhere up and down the beach. Lots of great places to eat and shop more »
Average beach nothing special. It is clean and close to city
Cool beach in a cool town. Great surfing spot. Highly recommend staying near here if you go to west coast of Costa Rica.
