The beach is clean, waves were perfect, and there were not too much people during the week. Many people surf. There is a lot of little family who just enjoy the view and walk on the perfect sand. It is vivid and calm, the sunset is really nice.

All good! Love Jaco and will return every year 'til I'm gone. Jaco has grown on me, and I'll be here every year to hang out with my new tico friends.

This is not your typical Caribbean style beach. it reminded me more of Galveston TX rather than Costa Rica. Its dirty, crowded and not worth the time in my opinion.

Since I am used to going to Jamaica, I was disappointed in the beaches in Jaco. The sand is brown and reminds me of dirt. Lots of surf, brown water and no beach bars right on the beach

Loved the beach, not many people around so you have plenty of privacy and can relax and unwind! Water was beautiful and there was a nice breeze to keep you a good temperature!
