About Jaco Beach!


The town of Jaco Beach, Costa Rica is the closest and most readily accessible beach to the capital city San Jose.  It is the "fun and sun" spot on the Pacific Coast and at present the beautiful drive takes abut 2 hours through lush mountains.  In 2007/2008 the new Caldera Highway will be completed and will shorten the driving time to 45 minutes. 

Costa Ricans as well as many North Americans and Europeans come to Jaco for the cinnamon sand beach with consistent surfing waves here and in neighboring Hermosa Beach, and the exciting night life.  The active village is full of life at all hours of the day and night.  There are souvenir and gift shops, local clothing and artisan shops, close to 100 restaurants and bars, casinos and several discotheques for late night dancing and mingling.  There are a diversity of tours, activities, national parks and reserves nearby.  Divers enjoy the reefs and exotic fish.  Besides surfing and swimming you can go horseback riding in the mountains or on the beach, go on a canopy tour or visit a butterfly farm.  The area boasts some of the world's best deep sea fishing with record breaking catches of marlin, tuna and sailfish.  There are real estate services, supermarkets, Internet cafes and pharmacies.  Other professional services include doctors, dentists and lawyers.  There is no shortage of things to do in and from Jaco, which will make your visit very memorable. 

If this is your first visit it probably won't be your last!

Jaco Beach is experienceing a building boom and is home to some of the top real estate buys in Costa Rica.  For the investor there are numerous opportunities, with several builders constructing new homes and condominiums that vary in location, size and price.  Jaco Beach real estate ranges from luxury ocean view and beach front villas and condos to smaller more affordable properties in and around the town.  Jaco is one of the few areas in Costa Rica that is fee simple, which means you own the land and do not have to lease it from the government.  It has become the largest and most developed beach town in Costa Rica because of its proximity to the capital city of San Jose.  There is a new Master Plan proposed that will limit future development near the beach, restricting height and density.  With the new highway coming and these other issues we feel that overall property values in Jaco, especially oceanfront are going to soar over the coming years.  Some American tourists say it reminds them the way California and Hawaii were 40 years ago.  Last year Costa Rica surpassed Hawaii as the number one destination, with over one million tourists visiting. 

Talk about being in the right place at the right time.
