Baby sitting available

I am looking at doing a week in Jaco with 1 year old twins in a condo. If I can't convince Grandma to join us is there babysitting available at any condo or company in town that does babysitting?

Also is there a restaurant or other area anywhere that mom and dad can enjoy a drink in that will allow our kids with music? I am thinking a pool area may be our only option for that.

Not sure about a babysitter, but kids are welcomed almost everywhere in Costa Rica. We like to listen to music at the backyard in playa Hermosa and there are always lots of kids. Just don't let them near the water, huge rips.

Many options!

Il Hicaco Restaurant has a swing set that my daughter loves playing on. They usually have a Calypso band on Wednesday night.

Blu is a newer club that has swimming pools and I have heard welcome kids. Not sure if/when they have music.

The Backyard on Saturday evening is another option. They have a band after the weekly surf compeition.

Ask around. We have found several options for our 5 year old with music here.

Waiting to hear when Low Tide has a band. They just built a swing set on the beach 20 yards away.

I believe I heard Green Room also has music from time to time and they are amazingly kid friendly (we had a hard time getting our child to leave after they let her help make fresh juice

Talk to your condo management about babysitters. We have inquired, but never used anyone. Most likely they would suggest someone that is a nanny for a North American couple that lives here full time that is looking for additional work or a teacher.
