driving to beaches near San Jose

Hello, I am travelling to San Jose July 28 to August 4th. I am staying in San Jose because I am visiting someone who is working there. He will have a day off here and there (but prob two in a row) and I would like to head to a beach...from san Jose, Which coast is the best, not only in terms of beauty but also in terms of being able to rent a car to drive there and back in one day...please include rough travel times and road conidtions if possible...thanks

i'm fairly sure that jaco beach is the closest to san jose. the roads are good between the two locations - i think it's about a 2 hour drive (roughly). i've heard it's the most popular beach because it's the closest to san jose. have a great trip.
