I'm a single lady who came down to Jaco with my single male friend. We knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into. Rooms are clean(as far as the eye can tell) and nice. After a long trip, a hot shower and a/c and a beach view was much needed. But while my friend went and had a nap I...

This place is both awesome and not awesome at the same time. We were just looking for a place on the beach and found this spot. Turns out it is Disney land for dudes. Which, I don't mind because I never complain about lots of woman. Problem is, they seem sketchy and I wouldn't risk it. The hotel itself is...

This is shame of a casino. There are a handful at best of tables. If you are in Jaco - visit Crocs, as it is very clean and new. Cocal is a place for all 'working girls'. Large outdoor bar but TONS of ladies. If you go, just be prepared. This is located right on the beach in the middle...
