Reviews / Comments Is this a popular beach? What's it like?
January 3rd, 2015 Jaco is a nice surf town, but the sand makes it rather difficult to fully enjoy. The sand is black and rather rocky. You also need to be careful when swimming because you will often walk on rocks both small and large. I would recommend swimming shoes or your feet will get cut up. Jaco also seems to have a fair amount of fog/mist in the mornings and sometimes throughout the day.
The town of Jaco is really fun. Nice restaurants, hotels and shops. They also have a bungee jumping area. It seems to be a booming area. They also offer quite a few day trip options to tourists through a few different companies.
I have visited Jaco on two different trips. I really like visiting but wish the sand and swimming was a bit better.
