We came with our large extended family (my in-laws, 5 kids, sister-in-law with husband, wife and me). We stayed at one of the nice villas plus one regular room. The villas are a great place to stay at. They are near the beach and have everything. The place is very well kept, food is good and the bay, beach, surroundings are just gorgeous.
My son and I learned how to surf there, they have surf lessons and all of a sudden you are just surfing, great experience!
The small kids had a great time at the pool, while the older kids were at the beach from dusk till dawn.
The beach is a great beach for jogging or just walking. 5km long beach and very wide.
Jaco is only 45 minutes away from San Jose and the airport, and the road is a nice divided highway.
We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Costa Rica.
