The 2.5-mile strip of Playa de Jacó is a lively beach great for playing in the surf and enjoying a glowing sunset. In addition to Jacó, beaches lie a short distance to the north and south, including Playa Hermosa, a beautiful black sand beach that annually hosts the International Quicksilver Surfing Championships. Surfing and deep sea fishing are among the area’s most popular activities, and beach-goers can easily catch sight of colorful Scarlet Macaws flying high among the area’s mangrove trees. For those who wish to explore Costa Rica’s magnificent wildlife, adventure excursions can be made to nearby nature reserves and parks.
The two-story Hotel Mar de Luz sits on a quiet street just a short walking distance from the center of Playa de Jacó. While it is centrally located next to the town’s bustling shops, bars, and restaurants, the tucked away hotel achieves an atmosphere of remarkable tranquility and restfulness.
Each of the hotel’s accommodations opens to a small porch or balcony over-looking the intimate hotel grounds, which feature lush tropical gardening and two neighboring pools. Breakfast is included in the hotel stay, and rooms include a basic kitchenette and mini-refrigerator suitable for preparing snacks and small meals.
This hotel is a little gem in the heart of Jaco. Only a few minutes walk to beach and restaurants and yet you felt like you were private. The grounds and pool were lovely. A great play area for children. Breakfast was good and the hotel felt very safe.
