Playa Jaco is the closest beach to the San Jose airport. We are located just steps away from the beach break. The walking distance to the center of the surf town of Jaco is only one block. We think you will quickly agree Jaco Inn is the best hostel in Jaco.
Jacó lies between several mountains, and is neighbored by the beaches of Herradura Bay to the North, and Playa Hermosa to the South. About 35 kilometers north of Jacó, lies the Carara National Park, recognized for its exuberant wildlife and dense rain forest. Carara is home to one of the largest remaining populations of wild scarlet macaws in the country. The ecotourism park Rainforest Adventures, NatGeo´s top ten of adventure trips, is just 5 minutes from the beach and features an aerial tram through the transitional forest. The Manuel Antonio National Park is located 75 kilometres south of Jacó.
Jacó lies about 100 kilometers (a little less than two hours via Route 34) from the capital San José and an hour and a half from Costa Rica's primary international airport, Juan Santamaría International, accessed via route 34/27.
