Jaco Beach Costa Rica

Jaco Beach Costa Rica is located less than one and a half hours from Costa Rica’s Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO).  Jaco is the closest major beachside destination to the capital city of San Jose. With rolling green hills of jungle and farm pastures in the distance, Jaco sits in a wide cove with rocky points on each end. The beach is a long arc that has a backdrop of palm trees, surfside hotels, souvenir and boutique shops, a huge selection of restaurants and bars, and the occasional condo complex.
