Surfing

Jaco was once an archetypal sleepy beach town. But it wasn’t long before Jaco Beach’s excellent waves began to draw foreign surfers in exponential numbers, especially because of the Costa Rica beach’s proximity to the San Jose (less than two hours).

Along with the surfers came the need for nightlife. Now, Jaco is Costa Rica’s wildest party beach, and a top destination for wave-worshippers and land-lubbers alike.
