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, Jaco Edition.

It is it's best at dusk. Jaco Beach is large and comfortable to be in, but it does get crowded most of the time. If you have some kind of mobility I would recommend you go to other beaches nearby. The beach at Manuel Antonio National Park is the best in the area.
When the tide comes in, the waves increase in height. The waves make this a popular surfing desitnation. As for the nightlife, there are plenty of places. There's no shortage of Americans walking the main street or on the beach.
