Jaco Tours: So Much to See and Do!
Jaco tours in and around the Jaco area are everywhere! Located on the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica, Jaco is a fun-filled beach town with a variety of activities. Although probably the most populated beach town in Costa Rica throughout the year you won’t notice throngs of vacationers because Jacó beach only gets really crowded on certain holidays. These holidays include New Years, Christmas week, Easter week and the Costa Rican Independence Day, September 15th. As one of the closest public beaches to the Central Valley, where half of the country’s population lives, these holidays make Jacó a popular Tico vacation destination. And the plethora of Jaco tours offers something for everyone.
