Welcome to Jaco
When you pull into Costa Rica/Jaco , you will immediately find yourself surrounded by a “strip” of activity including a wide range of town facilities.
Whether you choose to visit during dry season or green season, there is incredible shopping for tourists at reasonable prices.Many shops in Jaco feature what is popular here in Costa Rica, from colorful, patterned blouses to simple, yet sexy and affordable dresses.
There are plenty of comidas rapidas (fast foods) at reasonable prices as well as restaurants that feature anything desired, from fresh seafood along the Pacific coast to authentic Italian cuisine and even Chinese restaurants.
Food and Dance
Along this strip, you will also find common town amenities such as pharmacies, banks (ATM’S), yoga studios, surf shops, grocery stores, spas, bus terminals and many more common town facilities. Whatever you’re in the mood for, the town of Jaco can offer you an abundance of options and certainly does not disappoint.
If you’re in the mood for a little Salsa, Merengue, or Bachata dancing, make sure that you scope out some of these local hot spots that usually get a late‐night start if you’re in the mood to fiesta. Most of the time the night clubs along the strip are just beginning to get a great crowd started around 11pm –midnight and will keep you on your feet, dancing into the early hours of morning.
Getting into Playa Jaco (Jaco beach) and the town of Jaco is not a difficult task. Feel free to choose to take the public bus, a more private shuttle that includes AC, or if you’re feeling free‐spirited and adventurous, feel free to barter with one of the many Costa Rican taxi drivers as many of the locals do.
No matter how you choose to travel to/from and throughout Playa Jaco, you are definitely in for a good time and adventurous experiences that you can reminisce about, telling your friends and family, for years to come.
