     Jaco Beach

Being the closest large beach to the capital city of San Jose, Jacó is a popular bustling beach town known for its party-like atmosphere and relaxed way of life. Curving in a wide arc about 4 km long, this picturesque beach is bordered by coastal hills at both ends, creating an open bay. Travellers should be aware that there is often a strong rip tide, and swimming should be done with caution. However, the tranquil Playa Herradura is just 7 km north and is better suited for swimming. Jacó and its southerly neighbour, Playa Hermosa, are renowned surfing locations; the International Quicksilver Surfing Championship and several national competitions are held here annually. Besides surfing, you can enjoy long beach walks, horseback riding, mountain biking, ATV tours, canopy zip-lines and sportfishing
