Hotel Cocal Casino
Ranked #19 of 48 things to do in Jaco
Attraction details

Very small. Play in Colones money. Does not open until 11 AM. Many prostitutes after 6 PM. Only 3 card tables are open. Machines do not pay out much or at all.

For orange juice, coffee, bacon, eggs and toast the "Gringo" breakfast - for $7.00 is terrific value. Restaurant subsidized by the casino in the building no doubt. Late night by the bar and the pool is not for families. Lots of "deep sea fishermen" frequent the bar.

After a couple of months in Jaco, it was time for my wife and I to try our luck in a casino. We had heard rumours about the Cocal and found out it is a place full of prostitutes. With my wife at my side, I was still confronted by a "lady". No place to have some fun playing slots or cards! Find another casino without the extra curricular activities!

Lots of overweight drooling male tourists, oogeling and pawing young
Costa Rican and Nicaraguan prostitutes. Surprise surprise- the immigration police swooped into town on Fri Jan11, 2013 and arrested the illegal immigrant streetwalkers (which were most of the girls) Saturday Jaco was as dead as Elvis! While prostitution is legal in Costa Rica, I'd think twice about staying at the Hotel Cocal where they prowl- and certainly wouldn't bring wife/kids/pastor to stay at this hotel. If this is what you want, keep yours eyes open and cash in a deep pocket.
