Being from San Diego, California and used to white beaches, we're really disappointed on coming here because we feel our beaches are better. There's not a whole lot of selection on food besides casados. We most likely won't come back here again.

Endless back sand beaches, and a fair amount of tourism. If you want to hae some beach to yourself just head out of town in either direction and you will soon find solitud. Beach goers who prefer white sand beaches may be a bit dissappointed, surfers will not be though. Tons of breaks including playa hermosa.

Jaco is a great Costa Rican surf town on the Pacific Coast. Close to Manuel Antonio park and resorts ranging from the Marriott Los Suenos to the local Punta Leona. Lots of places to stay near the beach, variety of restaurants, bars, t-shirt and souvenir vendors (usual touristy-beach stuff).

Wild and touristy surfer town. Great place to get some grub between sets, but otherwise we tend to stay downcoast in Playa Hermosa. Lively social scene if you're looking for a good time...

Jaco is a great small town with plenty to do. You can walk to anywhere you want to go or catch a cab anyplace in town. From Jaco you can do many day trips both inland and coastal. All the locals are very welcoming and U.S. dollars are excepted everywhere though I recommend you have local currency whenever possible to avoid confusion with conversions. Not every business uses the same rate.
