Jacó Beach is one of the most famous tourist beaches and it’s a perfect place for surfing. It is located north of Puntarenas, just one hour from the International Airport Juan Santamaría.
Jacó Beach has a good reputation for nightlife, but the fun is good and safe, people are friendly and pleasant and the city has been developed for any tourist needs.
Herradura Beach, just 4 miles north from Jaco, provides a more calm environment than Jaco Beach, and attracts many surf champions and international events.
Herradura has a Marina, several condominium complexes in Los Sueños Marriott Beach and Gulf Resort. The beach was also an easy sell since the off-shore waters were sweeming with dolphin and sport fishing like principal activity.
Bring: sunscreen and swimsuit, a hat and insect repellent!
