Top Pre-Packaged Vacations & All Inclusive Resorts in Jaco

Jaco was one of Costa Rica’s first resort towns, but despite the other destinations which have blossomed around it, the city manages to maintain a certain distinguishing charm. Ice-weary northerners and Costa Ricans alike book Jaco vacation packages in search of the perfect Pacific getaway, and the area doesn’t disappoint: The jungle scenery is lush and verdant, the nightlife is surprisingly metropolitan, and the local neighbourhoods house everything from laid-back beach haunts to bustling city avenues. If you’re looking for one of the best spots to experience Costa Rica’s vibrant personality, Jaco vacations are ideal for you.

Known primarily for its cocoa-coloured beaches, Jaco is also a classic hot spot for surfers. Seasoned professionals and wave-hunting beginners alike jet off on a Jaco beach vacation to enjoy the area's nearby breaks and barrels, and you’ll find an array of Jaco all inclusive hotels that cater to the activity. If surfing’s not your thing, don’t be disheartened; the region offers plenty in the way of snorkeling, kayaking, and rafting, and you won’t have to venture far from the main square to catch a few thrills. Book a family tour through Playa Jaco or the nearby beaches — Playa Hermosa, Playa Agujas and Punta Leona are especially good bets — to try your hand at several water sports in one trip.

Beyond sunbathing and adventuring, another great way to uncover the area’s personality is to browse the local shops and markets. Start in Jaco’s centre for a leisurely stroll around the neighbourhoods. You’ll see the usual cluster of trinket stores and souvenir stands, but take the time to seek out the variety of surf shops, jewellery boutiques and fabric markets. You’ll be rewarded with an array of locally produced goods, and you might just be able to chat with the vendors to get a few off-the-beaten-path restaurant recommendations.

Of course, these ideas are only the beginning. Book your vacation in Jaco to start exploring the goldmine of regional sights, sounds and experiences. Whether you’re planning a family bird watching trip or want to take off on an adventurous crocodile safari, this Costa Rican wonder simply sparkles with things to do.
