The surfing in Jaco is something that should be experienced if you have a healthy sense of adventure. While the more experienced and advanced surfers will head to the beach 5 miles down the road (Hermosa) for huge, world-class breaks, Jaco is a perfect place for your first attempt to hang-ten. Surfing lessons are offered at any number of surf shops in town or there are also tents on the beach for local surf schools. If you need a rental and some good advice on where to go and what to do just consult your personal concierge or head to Chuck’s Surf Shop on the north end of town. If land activities are more your speed, you can head out on any number of different adventure tours offered in Jaco. Zip line through the forest canopies, explore the jungle and mountains on an ATV, hop on a dune buggy or go out on horseback.
There are endless day trip opportunities when you are based in Jaco. Take a short trip to Manuel Antonio National Pato Arenal, Volcanoes, Water Rafiting, Zip Line, ATV, Water Rapelling, Unique Hikes.
