Location and Directions
Las “Canciones del Mar” is located Ocean Front and centrally in the little former fishing village of Garabito or more commonly known as “Jacó Beach” or just simply Jacó (pronounced HA-co). A new highway will be built which will cut travel time to 45 minutes.
The 5.5 km long beach of fine volcanic sand is a safe for walking day or night. Jacó is becoming the surfing capital of Costa Rica especially in the months of July through September. The surf is not necessarily “High” but the waves are consistent. The weekends and school holidays bring the weary workers of San Josó and their families for sun and fun. Jacó is a town to satisfy the needs of all young and the more mature alike. Las Canciones del Mar is a few minutes walk up a rustic lane way to the many and varied shops and restaurants of Jacó, the restaurants offer local, American, and international cuisine in an informal and casual ambiance. Shorts and T-shirts will take you anywhere.
