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.

It is a little sketch once it gets dark but just be careful. Most of the people who solicit you understand that No means No. On the walk back to our condo at 2am one night we did see two men having a sexual experience...More

We enjoyed this beach. It was clean and there were shady areas for those who are sun worshipers. The water is clean and warm. The waves are great for surfing or just having fun. Surfing lessons are offered for those who want a little more...More

The beach had a lot of drugs, homeless, tourists. Not my kind of people. Definitely prefer off the beaten path locations in Costa Rica!

The beach has black sand and rolling waves. Great for walking the beach and boggyboarding. Great for surfing I hear. Lots of shops and resteraunts. Hotels and bars are very affordable compared to other places we stayed. Will definitely return

Big beach next to Jaco's main street. Surf lessons and board rentals are offered, there are no facilities such as showers or bars though. The water was clean and nice.

not impressed with the beach it's big and wide, but the dark color makes the sand super hot, there are millions of crabs, and chair umbrella rental is crazy expensive. Jaco beach is my least liked beach in 4 months of travel in Costa Rica....More
