Go for a Pura Vida summer vacation in Costa Rica on the beach in Jaco at Hotel Amapola!
Are you ready for a Pura Vida summer vacation in Costa Rica?
The famous Costa Rican saying, Pura Vida, means “pure life” and that’s what it’s like here. Pure fun. Pure friendly people. Pure adventure. Pure nature full of life. And pure vacation paradise.
With almost 780 miles of coastline along just the Pacific Ocean – and another 132 miles on the Caribbean – safe to say that Costa Rica has a lot of beaches. While many beaches in Costa Rica can be very secluded and difficult to access, Jaco Beach on the Central Pacific Coast is custom-built for easy vacations.
To start, Jaco is a little over an hour from the San Jose International Airport. The fun-loving beach town is full of places to stay, excellent dining, nightlife, conveniences and services that make a great vacation. Not to mention the long, wide, curving beach where you can walk, jog, cycle on a beach cruiser, picnic, and soak up the sun.
Some of Costa Rica’s top professional surfers come from Jaco, and riding the waves is definitely one of the favorite pastimes here. Besides surfing or taking a surf lesson, right in the area you can go zip lining, hiking, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, sportfishing, golfing, waterfall swimming, horseback riding, mountain biking, and whitewater rafting. Two national parks – Carara and Manuel Antonio – are close by. And you can even go on a river cruise to see the famous giant crocodiles of Tarcoles River!
Jaco Beach is one of the most popular places to visit in Costa Rica, consistently winning TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Award for vacation destinations.
At Hotel Amapola, minutes from the sand in Jacó Beach, you have everything you could want on vacation in one place: comfortable rooms, full restaurant dining, a refreshing pool, relaxing spa, lush green areas, night life, casino, games room, gym, and tour reservations. And you get everything at the right price – vacations starting at $130 per night for 2 persons. Free Wi-Fi, parking, and breakfast are included in all reservations.
Costa Rica is one of the best vacation destinations in 2017, where sunshine, balmy weather, blue skies, epic surf and soft sand give you all the reasons to have a great time. Ready to go?
