I have stayed in Jaco many times. Although you cant find a lot of information about the town, I highly recommend it. It has EVERYTHING you could possibly want. You have civilization, jungle, adventure, great food with LOTS of restuarants, clubs, big clean beaches... EVERYTHING!
I have stayed in many places in Jaco, none of which were exactly what I was looking for. UNTIL...
One day I found this adorable hotel that was beach front. Cabinas Catalina! It was so inviting that I felt drawn to it. Even before checking in, the wonderful atmosphere had me excited. It was so clean and manicured. You could tell that the owners put a lot of LOVE into this place. There were so many tropical plants perfectly placed, and a small pool in front, right on the beach. The rooms were like a dream. They all had a kitchenette, with a porch. I would get excited each day when the cleaning lady would fold my towels into different shapes, each day something new... A heart, a flower, etc. Everything had a loving touch to it. They have this adorable dog named Dino that would respectfully guard the property from a passing tucan or iguana. He also knew not to come into your room (even when called, I tried trust me). This is one of the only places on the beach that actually has parking in the back. It is only a short walk to the main part of town, but still far enough away that the noise doesnt bother you. In the mornings I would walk next door to the cafe for crepes and coffee. In the evenings, i would take a sunset swim in the ocean and stare in wonderment at the jungle behing me. This is paradise, and I was thrilled to have found Cabinas Catalina to call my home away from home.
