Jaco, Costa Rica

The closest beach to the capital of San Jose, Jaco is also one of Costa Rica’s most frequently visited.  The area is well-developed with plenty of consumer options, like banks and health clinics, as well as world renowned surfing.

In addition to its coastal water sports, Jaco also boasts numerous inland rivers and streams where residents and tourists can enjoy white-water rafting and hiking to a number of impressive waterfalls.

Because it is a huge tourist draw, Jaco is also known for its nightlife and party scene, which does include some drug activity and prostitution. However, in the hours leading up to 10 p.m., the town is quite relaxing and laid-back.
