Location and Climate

Getting to Jaco, Costa Rica

Jaco's strategic location makes it easy for residents to enjoy incredible beach living while being just a short drive away from the bustling Central Valley. The new highway 27 made its debut just a few years ago.  The new highway has turned a once long and slow-moving trek into a quick, scenic drive. From Jaco, one can simply hop onto the Costanera Highway and drive north for about half an hour along the Pacific Coast. Take the easy-to-spot exit to Highway 27, enjoy the incredible mountain scenery, and, in less than an hour, you will be in the fabulous city of Escazu, with its massive Multiplaza, restaurants like Outback Steakhouse and Chili's, and stores such as Costco, Office Depot, The North Face, and Zara. 

For Jaco residents who are looking to get away to a national park or other beach area (there are  dozens of both to visit throughout the country), you've got plenty of options. A scenic drive about an hour south of Jaco takes you to one of Costa Rica's greatest attractions–Manuel Antonio National Park. Wildlife viewings are guaranteed and the beaches within the park are incredible.

There is plenty to see north of Jaco as well.  One of the most popular northern routes is to cruise up to the town of Puntarenas, drive aboard a ferry, and take a scenic ride across the Nicoya Golf. When you arrive at the other side you'll have access to some of Costa Rica's most remote and pristine beaches, such as Mal Pais and Santa Teresa.
