There are many reasons why we mentioned Jaco as one of the regions that is a must-visit in Costa Rica. It is near the Manuel Antonio National Park, one of the protected areas in the country. As it is full of wildlife, there is a lot of room for exploration.

There are monkeys, several types of birds as well as butterflies. You can take a picture of them, just don't use flash. You can go hiking and reach the peaks, enjoying the fresh air as well as the rustling of the tropical trees. As it also includes the beach, you can go snorkeling and visit the wonders of the underwater. Coral reefs that seem to have been untouched by human civilization is one of the most beautiful sites anyone can behold.

However, if you are not into more physical activities, you can relax in one of the many resorts up north in Jaco. The beaches are still there, so you can frolic on the sand and waves with your family and friends. There are even some places which can cater to weddings and other special occasions. You can ask for a package that can save you some money on a rather loaded vacation getaway. If you want something a bit more private, you can try to find hidden beaches that are riddled around the coastline. Here are some of them:

Other Things You Can Do

Costa Rica might be well-known for its beaches, resorts, and parks, which are rather tame. Sport Fishing is one of the activities that you can explore on one of the coastlines. You need to rent a boat, fishing equipment as well as a tour guide cum seaman. Once you are out in the water, everything can be considered as a fair game. Be warned though, as some catches can be a part of endangered species or dangerous to you. Make sure to research first or listen to your shipmate before catching and consuming anything.

The best time to visit this beautiful country is from December to April as this is the driest season of the year. At this time, you can enjoy all of the activities mentioned before since some of them can be hindered by wind and rain. However, you still need to check the weather on the days that you will be staying in the country. Storms and strong rains are common occurrences and you do not want the weather to hinder your fun.
