At the beach at Jaco, you'll usually find a friendly mix of local ticos and tourists whose mission it is to enjoy the friendly surf and sun as much as they can! Like most beaches in Costa Rica, the surface can change from the seasonal weather patterns and tides. In the high season from December to April, it is usually all sandy, and during the rest of the year, it can have smooth pebbles mixed on the surface, but the bottom is always basically sandy. Unlike other beaches, like nearby Hermosa, under "normal" conditions of light waves, there are usually no dangerous currents. However, when the surf is up, you could get caught in a riptide or undertow, so be cautious. Don't panic; swim on a diagonal back to shore. There are a few lifeguard towers, but they are usually not manned except in the high season.

Still small town enough to find the occasional horseback rider on the roads or on the beach, Jaco is an interesting blend of the old and the new.
