Reviews (1)
5 out of 5

This condo is part of The Palms resort community in Jacó, Costa Rica. The beach is just outside the complex, plus you'll have lots of nearby amenities and shops within walking distance.

You'll enter into a spacious living area. With a comfy sofa, cable TV with DVD player, and Internet, it's easy to relax. A sliding glass door goes out to the large covered balcony overlooking the beach, where you'll have a festive tropical tiki bar and an outdoor table with seating for four.

Inside, there's a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a dishwasher, and casual seating with three bar stools. This condo also has a private washer/dryer and partial A/C for your convenience.

With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, this condo will accommodate four guests. In the master suite, there's a king to size bed, en suite bath, and access to the main balcony. The second bedroom features two twin to size beds and another full bath.

Spend your days relaxing and lounging on the sandy beach, swimming in the ocean, and enjoying delicious food at one of the local restaurants right on the beach. Parque Johannes Dankers is less than a mile away, along with local amenities and shops. For a great day trip, explore the rainforest inland by ziplining through the trees, white water rafting on the river, or hiking through the rainforest.

Plan a fun Costa Rican adventure and stay at this beautiful oceanfront condo to book your trip today!

Location

The drive from the San Jose airport (Juan Santamaria International Airport) to Jaco will take about 1 hour and 30 minutes and is fully paved with the new highway in place. We suggest exchanging at least $5 US dollars into Costa Rican colones for the tolls on the highway. Ask the rental car agent to send you off in the right direction, which should be west on Route 1, past the airport. Drive defensively and be aware when two lanes become one, "CEDA" means "Yield".

Note: The first 13 km uses the same "old" route to Manuel Antonio. GPS devices might not be updated and will likely still have the "old" route so do not rely on them to follow the complete recommended route.

Once on Route 1 to follow signs to San Ramon, and continue straight ahead for about 10 km. After the second bridge crossing, get in the right lane and take the next exit (Route 3) for Jaco / Quepos / Manuel Antonio. There is also a sign here for Punta Leona and Atenas. Turn left at the stop sign, crossing back over Route 1.

Follow Route 3 for about 3 km. Look for a large Christian church on the left and then a soccer field and make a left on the road immediately after it. You are on the road to Turrucares. There are no signs and it's a secondary road, so don't think you've made a mistake. It's currently the best connection to the toll highway from the airport.

Drive for another 3 km through this somewhat winding road. Once you arrive at the highway intersection turn left BEFORE the highway.

How did you like the accommodation?

     

This 5th-floor, ocean-front corner condo provides the best views of Jaco beach without question. You can catch the morning sun and see the sunset and count each wave to crash the beach in between. With access to neighboring Crocs Hotel and Casino, you have an awesome pool and several food options. We ate lunch at the pool several times. Situated at the north end of the beach, it is quieter than being adjacent to the town but you are still minutes away from the restaurants and shops. Great place for rest and relaxation.

The bigger swell season in the Central Pacific area is from May to November with waves consistently from 2-6 feet, sometimes bigger. Costa Rica's summer months & dry season is from December to April. Waves tend to be really fun clean 3-4 foot.

Surfing Jaco

The main beach in this surf town is a long 3 km beach break good for beginners and intermediates with many different peaks. If the swell gets above head high it tends to close out. South of the bay is Roca Loca, a right reef break that can hold up 10 feet at times.

Further south is Hermosa beach. It has a really good vibe to hang out, meet people and get in the water every day. It is a 7km long dark sandy beach breaks that works best on high tide. If you want to escape the crowd head further south. The beach packs a punch and when it's bigger it will rip those board shorts right off you and challenge even the best surfer.

Further along the coast you will find Esterillos about 10k south of Hermosa. Another fun beach break that is a swell magnet and if your looking for an uncrowded wave, take a walk down the beach and pick a peak.

Still heading south you will find other spots include Seco, Bejuco and Playa Espadilla, a great beginners surf beach in the popular surf town of Manuel Antonio.

Surfing Dominical
Less crowded than other surf towns in Costa Rica. Dominical is a much longer trek from San José so it does not tend to get the same amount of surfers that Jaco has. Dominical is a wave magnet and has been called the most consistent surf spot in Costa Rica. The towns main break, Playa Dominical works best on Mid to high tide as at low tide it can be just a shore dump. It tends to be a better spot for Advanced, intermediates as it can get powerful.

2km south is Dominicalito, a beachbreak that is great for beginners. Further on 1 km is The point, with rides of up to 250 meters! There are many more breaks to be discovered, and teh further on south you go the emptier the breaks.

Come surf Jaco, Dominical & Central Pacific Costa Rica with us....
