We traveled with our adult daughters and Jaco was our second destination in CR. Upon arrival at check-in gate, our family was impressed immediately as we began the 1 mile drive (well-lit & paved) up the mountain. The walk to our room (#14) was a little adventure in its own, seeing wildlife and animal sounds along the way. We had arranged for 'extra guests' (our daughters) so the sofas in living room had been swapped out for two nice and comfy twin-bed size cots. The a/c worked very well so we stayed cool, slept well at night, which was the only time we spent in our room. We took the shuttle down to beach first time, but used our rented 4 x 4 after that. The path is safe but a bit steep. One of our daughters walked down one day but didn't attempt the hike up later since it would have been exhausting and taken a while. I think its about 5 minutes by vehicle. There is a bar at the beach and the staff was very nice and accomodating. We didn't have any meals at the hotel only because we enjoy checking out local cafes and restaurants. We did enjoy happy hour by the lovely infinity pool on our final evening. Great drinks and good prices. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at Villa Caletas again.
