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

1. Re: driving to beaches near San Jose

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.
