Many visitors come to Costa Rica to disconnect from the outside world and simply relax. Others want to do a variety of activities, go out on the town, and, of course, visit the country’s famous beaches.
Jaco is one of Costa Rica’s most developed beach towns, and the main strip, which runs parallel to the sand, is lively both day and night.
This post will go over the top five adventures you should include in your itinerary for this popular central Pacific coast destination.
Adventure calls, and it doesn’t get much better than rafting down Costa Rica’s impressive rivers on a whitewater rafting tour.

What People Say About Us?
Where to even begin. The entire experience was a blast and their attention to detail was superb. If you are planning to visit Jaco, there is no other company you need to be looking for. They will literally help you the entire way and make you feel like family. From reservations to restaurants, to group outings, and transport; they it all covered. The accommodations we choose were great too and they were just the right fit for my group. Also, the concierge service is a must! These wonderful ladies were super helpful to our group and made us feel safe around town. Their food and club recommendations were on point! Also the chef service was a great addition to the package. Specially in the mornings before going into our activities. Thank you to all the staff for their attention detail and hospitality.
Incredible experience! I can't thank Jaco Royale enough for taking care or us. Alexa and Anna were great and made sure we experienced the best nightlife in Jaco! Ali was amazing... she made sure we experienced the beauty and culture of Costa Rica during the day. Beautiful hikes, great food, and site seeing. Those 3 ladies need a raise! They were badass! I can't wait to come back!
Jaco Royale was an amazing company! They were so easy to communicate with and accommodated 11 girls. They made us feel very safe. We stayed in a beautiful 7 bedroom house in Hermosa Playa with 24/7 security in a gated community. They were able to provide transportation to and from the airport and Jaco. Their packages for ziplining, massages at the home, San Manuel Antonio tour, and ATVing were all amazing!! Highly recommend Eli for the San Manuel Antonio tour! He knows every animal in that jungle and he really loves sharing his knowledge! Best bachelorette company ever!
This company is the real deal! Everything was transparent and smooth. Communication was on point. We had a party of 15. The house (Limehouse) was great and the chef's cooking was delicious. Everything was organized according to our itinerary. To Kattia, Mary, Liza, Vinicio, Greg, Jamie DJ Step, Norbin, Digna and Alexa, thank you all for a great time for my boys. We had a great time exploring Costa Rica and seeing what your country has to offer!
