I hate to say it, but when I think "Bachelor Party" there is really only one place for that. Playa Jaco. Jaco was built on debauchery from the ground up. Why spend your time in SJ when you can at least have a gorgeous setting around you. As "Party Like" as Jaco is it is still surrounded by some beautiful landscape, where as San Jose in my opinion is definitely not.
Jaco area recommendations for bachelor party: Beatle Bar
Food: Tsunami Sushi, Bubbas Tacos, Poseidon Restaurant, Wishbone.
Good local bars: Tabacon, Backyard Bar
Nice Hotel in the center of town around $100 p night is Poseidon http://www.hotel-poseidon.com/ Many options available, depending on your budget I can be more specific. you can get good advice and hotel discounts from http://www.crreferrals.com/TravelExperts.html Many tour options in the area such as canopy, fishing, rafting.
Anyway...I guess I vote for the beach...
I travel therefore I am...
You might want to check out Manual Antonio too. Lots of nightlife and great beaches too.
Totally agree Jaco is the place to go for your group. When I go with a group we prefer to get a few condos or a house. It is more comfortable, easy to hang out together, cheaper, and more room than hotel rooms.
Jaco is the place...
Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!
