Pura Vida

WHAT "PURA VIDA" MEANS? Simply translated, it means “simple life” or “pure life” or "good life", but here in Costa Rica, it is a way of life. You will hear these 2 famous Costa Rican words all the time when you are in Costa Rica. Costa Rican people say them frequently and in many different situations. To greet people to say hello or goodbye. To say good luck or "how are you?" are just a few ways this famous Costa Rican expression is used but we promise you will hear more.

Costa Rica has a very stable democracy and is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Costa Rica is known for its beaches, volcanoes, and biodiversity. Roughly a quarter of its area is made up of protected jungle, teeming with wildlife including spider monkeys, sloths, toucans, and quetzal birds just to name a few. When you look up into the sky don't be surprised to see Scarlet Macaws as that is a very common sight here in Costa Rica. According to the Happy Planet Index, Costa Rica is the greenest and happiest country in the entire world, and by a large margin as well.

Jaco Beach Villas

Jaco Party Rentals offers The LARGEST selection of PARTY FRIENDLY vacation rental villas in Costa Rica. The first and most important step in planning a bachelor party is to lock down a vacation rental villa where you can stay in comfort and not worry about party and guest restrictions like most other property rentals in Jaco. From mansions, downtown properties in the middle of the party, to beachfront houses we have places to fit your group’s budget and needs. Do not get stuck in a property that is far away from the action, a second rate house, resort or a property that is located in a quiet and gated family community as it will put a damper on the whole vibe of your getaway. That is why we do not recommend staying in Hermosa Beach as its far downtown Jaco and more of a family atmosphere. Yes there are nice houses in Hermosa Beach that are less expensive but there is a reason for that….you get what you pay for as Hermosa Beach is not a great place for guys groups who come to party. Most of our Jaco Beach vacation rentals come complete with bars, pools, leisure areas, and close to all of the places where visitors want to keep the party going all night long. Each of our properties is specifically designed to host groups coming to Jaco, making them the ideal place to throw your bachelor or bachelorette party. Many of the vacation villas we offer have a private party room/disco included as part of the property. This is ideal if you want to hire a DJ and have the feeling of a real disco/club at your property. For the villas that do not have a dedicated party room, the main living room area is the perfect option as well.

When you arrive to Costa Rica

The best place to arrive is Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO). After going through immigration and picking up your luggage there will be someone outside the airport after you exit the airport waiting for you — They will have the name of your group leader on a sign who you will find easily. He will call your recent model van or minibus for your group and they will arrive in minutes. Once on your transfer you will head to Jaco Beach which is about 1 hour and 20 minutes away with normal traffic. On the way you will make a quick stop at Crocodile Bridge (if daylight) to see a lot of Crocodiles both big and small and if lucky you will see some up to 20 feet. If arriving at night tell your concierge you want to stop at Crocodile Bridge on your way back to the airport as who doesn’t want to see a lot of crocodiles?

Jaco Day and Night

Jaco Nightlife

Party like a Rockstar at best and nicest disco in Jaco by a very large margin is the Republik Lounge and Disco which is less than a minute walk from the Cocal Casino on the same small street. It has great a/c, super nice VIP Tables around the dance floor, as well as a ton of bathrooms so you don’t have to wait like in most other clubs. Republik Disco offers you VIP Bottle and Table Service as well as the best DJ’s that Costa Rica has to offer. Dj’s play from hip-hip to reggaeton and the vibe in the club will make you want to party all night. This is a “must-go” at least one time during your vacation to see how the locals party which is a sight to see. Another good disco is Orange Pub which is around a 5 minute walk away.

The Jaco Part Zone (aka JPZ)

The most popular bar, disco and restaurant are on the same small street in the middle of Jaco known as the JPZ.   On this tiny street that goes from the main street to the ocean you will find everything you need to party from happy hour until late into the night.  Eat, drink, watch sports, gamble or to even just people watching this street has it all and is an amazing place to enjoy your evening.  Note we offer 3 private resort-style places in the JPZ but they are for the party people only as it is loud until the clubs close but if coming to Jaco to party stay in the JPZ!

Best Bars in Jaco

Jaco is famous for the most popular party bar in all Costa Rica. Its the Cocal Bar in the Hotel Cocal and Casino. You will find plenty of girls to party with starting around happy hour until around 11pm when people start leaving to go to all the disco’ s in Jaco. At the Cocal the most popular bar is outside next to the swimming pools and Cocal Casino. The food is good and there is good music playing over the speakers and many nights they will have a DJ too. There is also another bar and restaurant that is beachfront too which is great to enjoy the sunset and people watch at the same time. This is a “must-go” at least one time during your vacation if not more. And yes there is a small casino onsite too with card and dice options if you want to partake in some gambling and chance.

There are 2 good beach bars that have good bar food and our favorite being The Point. Having a nice drink and watching the sunset is never a bad way to spend your afternoon. If looking for Craft Beer and a great locals spot than the Jaco Bar is a good option. It is located on the 2nd floor in the middle of town with a outside patio facing the main street. The bar starts getting lively starting at happy hour and the food is good too. Live bands and Dj’s also play most evenings.

Jaco Restaurants

Your best option for meals is with a private chef without fail. However if you want to explore the Jaco Restaurant scene let your concierge know and they will assist on the best choices for your groups depending on what you want to eat and your budget. Most nice sit-down restaurants are fairly expensive but there are a ton of restaurant choices in Jaco including Steak, Chicken, Sushi, Thai, Seafood, Italian, among others. Our favorite high-end restaurant is Lemon Zest which is a little pricey but has a great menu and the service is excellent.

Costa Rican Restaurants (called Sodas) are best for lunch and usually are buffet style. There are a couple of good ones in Jaco and our favorite being Soda Garabito. You can eat for less than $10 per person including a drink too. A normal meal at a Soda is a protein (usually fish or chicken) with rice, beans, and a small pasta salad.

There are also a ton of casual restaurants as well serving hamburgers, sandwiches, fried chicken, to pizza so whatever you are in the mood for just let your concierge know and they will lead you in the right direction. There are not many USA fast food franchises in Jaco but there are a few including Pizza Hut, Subway and KFC.

Jaco Coffee and Ice Cream Shops

As expected you can drink some of the best coffee in Central or South America in Jaco. Opening early in mornings until early evenings there are coffee shops all over Jaco. The best 3 coffee shops are The French Bakery on the north side of Jaco on the main street, El Bohio on the main street in the middle of town and Cafetero’s (Colombian owned) in Jaco Walk Shopping Center off the main street on the south side of town. In Jaco Walk Shopping Center you will also find a ton of restaurants for lunch and dinner as well as ice cream kiosks, and is a popular hang out for Americans. Note the French Bakery has a better pastry selection (and they serve breakfast) than the other 2 but the coffee is equally good at all 3 places. Our favorite place is Cafetero’s which also serves great Colombian empanadas and the owners are awesome!

Believe it or not Jaco has great places for both ice cream and gelato. For the best gelato go to El Barco (Italian owned) in the middle of town on the main street where it’s also a great place to sit on the patio and people watch. For ice cream we recommend Pop’s Ice Cream Shop also in the middle town (close to El Barco) where you can get tons of flavors along with sundae’s and banana splits. Pop’s also has air conditioning and it is a great place to go and escape the heat.
