Lifestyle in Jacó Costa Rica
The town of Jacó boasts an exciting vibe like no other beach town in the country. Locals describe it as “Metropolitan culture meets beach chill.” There are several Vegas style casinos and a variety of bars, making the nightlife perfect for those revelers who like to have some fun gambling or dancing the night away.
And if you like to leave the cooking to someone else, there are 100 different dining and drinking options with everything from 5-star to casual. Choices such as seafood, Italian, Peruvian, Costa Rican, French, Asian, vegan, craft beer microbreweries, and wine bars are all at your fingertips. And, dinner and a drink out can be as cheap as $18 per couple at a local soda (small snack stand). Sport-fishing is extremely popular around Jacó, and restaurants will cook your own fresh catch-of-the-day for you with various choices of delectable cooking styles and flavors.
But Jacó is not just about weekend parties. There is a strong expat community which mixes in with the local ticos (native Costa Ricans) making the full-time residents about a 50/50 mix.
Residents have gone to great efforts in recent years to make Jacó a family-friendly place to visit and live. There are parks, jungle gyms, and many restaurants with kid-friendly menus. The Jacó Walk, an open-air mall opened in 2017, has activities and performances for the entire family.
The local feria (farmer’s market) is open every Friday from 6 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There you can socialize with the local community while you purchase fresh produce, artisanal breads, cheeses, and other goodies. Still not enough? Any given weekend you will find festivals focused on art, dance, beer, and even ceviche.
The surrounding area of Jacó possesses all the North American products and services required to live comfortably, such as medical clinics, major grocery stores, mechanics, pharmacies, clothing stores etc. Playa Herradura, just 10 minutes north, is the home of a large expat complex with an18-hole championship golf course, a luxurious JW Marriott Resort, and the largest marina on the west coast of the country. The nearest large hospital complex is in San Jose for major medical procedures.
Jacó’s downtown is fairly compact with most activity on the main road through town, so it is easy to live in Jacó and not own a car. There are some red metered taxis and Uber’s, making it easy to get around if you don’t feel like walking or biking.
Jacó can also be a place to relax and unwind. On the tranquil side you will find an artsy and spiritual community focused on yoga and healing. It is the perfect place to do everything or nothing at all, anything goes in Jacó.
