Surfing has to be on this list as it’s the top thing to do in Playa Jaco. It’s said to be one of the best beaches for beginners since it’s long with consistent waves. If you’re determined to ride out a wave, don’t miss out on this opportunity!
Outside of Jaco lies beautiful rolling hills, home to lush jungles and charming waterfalls. As these hills have yet to be developed and are inhabited by few people, it is the best place to explore the many waterfalls ensconced in the rain forest.
There are waterfall tours that take you to a private estate high up in the hills that has several waterfalls that you can climb up, jump off and swim under.
Check out the beautiful viewpoints
There are many places to get incredible views of Jaco and the surrounding area. First, you can go up in the hills outside town and there are many spots that give you panoramic views of the entire town and beach.
