Recommendations for solo male traveler

I'll be in Jaco in mid February and am looking for a cool place to stay. Hotel Cocal was the obvious first choice but they are fully booked. Price isn't an issue for me, just wanted something preferably on the beach with an ocean view that is guest friendly. Claritas looks like a good spot, just not sure if this is too far from the action or not. Figured there would be some other guys out there with advice, so any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks

You're correct in the location of Claritas as it's at the northern end of Jaco. However, taxis are so popular you can grab one anywhere and it's inexpensive. If you're looking for a fun beach bar at your accommodations, Claritas would be it. Balcon de Mar is on the beach (actually there is a small road in front but basically beach view), no happening bar on site but it's a good central location on Bohio. Flamboyant is also beachfront and just a bit north of Bohio. There is not a Days Inn in Jaco. Maybe roadadvisor was thinking of Best Western. It's beach front but all inclusive. I wouldn't go the all inclusive route or you'll miss out on great restaurants. If they offer an option of not all inclusive, it would be something to consider although their location is only slightly south of Claritas. Hotel Oz is pretty popular, not on the beach and their reviews are not great but it's a quick walk to the beach and central location too.

Gallina E Palo

On the beach, some of the best sunset views, basically next door to where you wanted to stay and the owner Brett is very down to earth. He just recently opened his hotel on the property, check it out. Pura Vida
