The southern end of Jaco Beach is a great place to learn how to surf because the area is shielded from the full force of the swells reaching the bay of Jaco.
Jaco is known for its nightlife, more than for surfing, and anything goes in town. This makes it a great destination for traveling surfers looking to party hard at the end of the day.
