This is the most popular beach in CR according to a local. It's about 1.5 hours from the capital so it draws a lot of locals on the weekends. The beaches are strew with rocks, has course, dirty sand, and twigs and leaves from the...More

I really enjoyed Jacó beach. There were periods of very soft waves, and later periods of large—very fun—waves. Lots of families, lots of locals. Beautiful environment.

The beach was very crowded, but we enjoyed a beautiful sunset here. There are pretty pink rocks in the dark sand here, which makes for a nice contrast. There were plenty of street vendors so you can easily grab something to eat/drink.
