Costa Rica: go somewhere else - T. Date of travel: Mar 2010
I am very well-traveled (around 50 countries), and Jaco, Costa Rica was probably the worst place I've been. There are very few places to go at night where the prostitutes are not swarming you, the town is dirty, and the prices are outrageous for the third world. The surf is good, but that's about the only positive thing I have to say about Jaco. If you have the option of going to Des Moines or going to Jaco, I say have fun in Iowa. P.S. Avoid a company called "Green Tours" (Sportfishing, ATVs, Canopy, etc) as they will rip you off and take your money.

Jaco, Costa Rica
Spent a week in Jaco, Costa Rica. I met many nice friendly people in Jaco. The locals are great. I don't think you should judge the town from the experiences of a few. We always hear the bad quicker than the good. I walked the streets and the beach without an incident.
