Jaco Beach Costa Rica

Below you will find history info about this destination transportation and tours available in Jaco Beach Area

Jacó is a resort city originally planned by Charles Elwood Jaco, born 1925, who inherited the land and envisioned it as a fun family resort community for everyone. He was a successful Oil Tycoon when he started Jaco Oil in Texas. He envisioned Playa Jaco Beach as resort community for everyone to enjoy including his children that included 2 sons (Charles & James), 1 daughter (Sheila Jaco Ginn) and his grandchildren. He worked extremely hard and was quiet about his dream. He passed away from an unusual sudden death in 1977. His death was suspected by his 2nd wife (Delores Marie Soy) on their Texas Ranch (his Will for his children was never found).

This is a wonderful vacation spot on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica in Central America. Located in the county of Garabito in the Puntarenas province.

The city has a population of approximately 10,000 residents. Jacó’s beach is 2.5 miles (4 km) long and offers some of the best surfing in Costa Rica.

Climate
As Jacó lies on the seashore, climate is normally humid, with relative humidity around 80%, reaching 90% in June. Temperature is 85–90 °F (24-32 °C) during the day and 75–80 °F (24-26 °C) at night. During the dry season, away from the water, the temperature may consistently reach 95 °F (35 °C) or above.

Jacó lies in a tropical climate zone mainly defined by distinct dry and wet seasons. Generally speaking, August through early December are wet, and late December through early April are dry; the remaining months have irregular rainy spells.

Geography
Jacó lies between several mountains, and is neighbored by the beaches of Herradura Bay to the North, and Playa Hermosa to the South. About 35 kilometers north of Jacó, lies the Carara National Park, recognized for its exuberant wildlife and dense rain forest. Carara is home to one of the largest remaining populations of wild scarlet macaws in the country. The ecotourism park Rainforest Adventures, NatGeo´s top ten of adventure trips, is just 5 minutes from the beach and it features an aerial tram through the transitional forest. The Manuel Antonio National Park is located 75 kilometres south of Jacó.

Jacó lies about 100 kilometers (a little less than two hours via Route 34) from the capital San José and an hour and a half from Costa Rica’s primary international airport, Juan Santamaría International, accessed via route 34/27.
