Playa Jaco is the closest beach to San Jose, Costa Rica’s busy capital. Playa Hermosa is just south of Playa Jaco, and is one of the area’s top destinations for surfing. These beaches are also popular destinations for Olive Ridely sea turtles. Sea turtles nest on these beaches as often as 3 times per season, which runs from June to December. Besides the sea turtles that frequent the local beach, you can also see hummingbirds, scarlet macaws, and green iguanas.
