Hey Scott,

I'm not really sure where the place you are talking about may be, but the beaches 30 minutes north from Jaco, are not necesarily the nicest ones in comparison with Jaco and Hermosa beach (surfer's preferred spot).

I recommend staying further south, Jaco has the best nightlife in the area, as well as the commercial quarter.

The weather is fine don't worry about that, but keep in mind that Costa Rica's climate has the rainy season and not so rainy season.

A comfortable hotel near the airport could be the Garden Court that is just 5 minutes away.

I recommend you explore a little more what you want to while visiting as Costa Rica has many things to offer:

Rainforest treks in the national parks. There is one called Carara near Jaco. Crocordile tour (some of the biggest in the world).

White water rating through the Pacuare, canopy through the jungle or just relax at the beach in Jaco, surf or get surfing lessons.

By your vague description of where this villa is located, sounds like it might be located within Punta Leona. If so, you're good to go - it's an incredible exclusive community about 10 minutes north of Los Suenos and has direct access to the highest rated beach in Costa Rica - Playa Blanca.

If the villa is further north than Punta Leona, then you're too close to the Tarcoles River - skip it.

30 minutes NORTH of Jaco ? Humm sounds like is on the other side of the Taroles river or more likely is in Playa Azul.

If is in Playa Azul in my opinion that is NOT the best area to spend your vacation.

7 miles north of Los Sueños is a nice beach.
