Food Scene
Jaco Beach is blessed with amazing restaurants hosted by chefs from all over the world. I don't cook at all so I know the food scene here very well!
Quite possibly the #1 restaurant in Jaco. Great wine list and ever changing specials board. Try the coffee/cacao crusted filet mignon and tuna tartar tower. Only open for dinner and closed on Sunday.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and just steps from the Paradise condos. This bakery has great coffee, eggs made any way you choose, fresh bread, quiches, bagels and much more. I like to order eggs with sourdough slices or a bagel with lox. Closed Wednesdays.

Italian restaurant with outstanding pizza that is made in their brick oven and they also make their pastas from scratch. I like the “Mama Mia” pizza.

My favorite local restaurant. Hugely popular and a lot like Rustico but less greasy. I like to go here for breakfast where they will prepare eggs any way you want with sides of gallo pinto, homemade tortillas and salad for $3.50.

The Bohio Roasters has the best cup of coffee in Jaco hands down. I'm a coffee snob so I really know my coffee. Amazing lattes and cappuccinos and if you have a sweet tooth their frappes are ridiculous. Try their Nutella frappe. Located right on the main strip.

Fantastic breakfast, lunch and dinner but for me their breakfast is what shines. Do yourself a favor and try their huevos rancheros.

Sightseeing
Highly recommended and mandatory while in the Central Pacific. This is a hotel about 15 north of Jaco where you can go to watch the sunset and get a drink. They built an amphitheater into the side of a 1,000 foot cliff that overlooks all of the central pacific all the way to the Nicoya Peninsula. You are likely to see the most breathtaking sunset of your life and it’s free to visit. A taxi will run about $18 each way. www.villacaletas.com

Miro's mountain is a casual hike to two amazing lookout areas. The trailhead is across the street from the gas station on the south end of Jaco and follow the road to the top. As you get to the top, there is a fork in the road where you will want to go to the left. Then follow the concrete walkway to a very unique look out point. I see toucans and scarlet macaws almost every time I walk or ride my mountain bike up here. Sometimes you'll also see monkeys and huge blue morphos butterflies.
