Certificate of Excellence
Surrounded by lush tropical gardens and only a few steps away from the surf break's, the best restaurants and the hottest clubs. Jaco Inn is a boutique lodging and surf school situated right in the heart of Jaco's downtown. Whether you come only looking for accommodation or wanting to learn how to surf, you will always find something different to make your vacation an unbelievable and wonderful experience. Mi casa es su casa, since 2009 our goal has been to make you feel at home, this is an unique place where we welcome travellers from all over the world in an inspiring yet familiar setting. Blessed to be located on a property with a great family legacy, the tropical vibe of the jungle and Pura Vida is the perfect combination for your next adventure. Playa Jaco is busy town and the mainstream street has numerous restaurants and bars. There are several places to go at night whether you want to dance and party hard, or just take it easy while having a beer and listening to live music. At our hostel we offer a beautiful relaxing space away from all of that if you just want to come back and relax after a busy day or a long trip.

It was great to walk through the garden behind the bars for your quiet accommodation. The atmosphere was very relaxed, the only thing is that it can be quite hot and there is no pool or A/C to cool down.
