Jaco is located in the center of the Pacific coast. Jaco Beach itself is about three miles long. The valley is ringed by beautiful jungle-covered mountains that rise 1,000 feet from the sea. Much of the beachfront development is residential on the south end, and the sand and the surf breaks here are wide open and uncrowded. In the center and middle, you will find more hostels and low-budget hotels and the mega-hotels in Jaco, so there are crowds if you are looking for them, but a seclusion is an option.
Jaco has long been recognized as the "surf city" of Costa Rica. There are ten more beaches and river mouth breaks within an hour's drive. This area of the coast receives more consistent surf than most places on the planet, and with ten beaches to choose from, there is almost always something firing!

The hotel s over 30 species of trees grow here, including seven different palm species and lots of flowers, including the exotic, sweet-smelling, ylang-ylang. Birds of paradise, heliconias, orchids, and bromeliads are everywhere!
The hotel is at the base of the tallest mountain, one mile from the south end of Jaco beach. Jaco Costa Rica is the most famous surf beach town in Costa Rica. It is the most accessible beach town to get to from the San Jose airport.
