What your missing in the Central Pacifics/Jaco Beach areas
By Brad Butler
This is truly an amazing place in which to live as it has all the advantages of living by the Ocean, a wonderful climate of warmth and sunshine plus all the conveniences of many wonderful little shops and great supermarkets.
The traveling distance to the International Airport of San Jose, Juan Santa Maria, is only 90 minutes, most of which is over really good roads even if some parts are a little slow, but this is made up for by the scenic side of the journey which one never tires of.
If a day is required for fun shopping then San Jose or Escazu are equally easily reached in around a couple of hours at an easy pace and this makes for a pleasant day out.
Up and down this Pacific Coast there are some wonderful beaches to visit and enjoy, as well as Carara National Park and many mountain trips into the hills behind the Costa Nera which is how the coast road is named.
You also have the wonderful and famous National Park of Manuel Antonio which is only some hour or so to the South of Jaco, and is surrounded by some really fine scenery.
For those into game fishing, this area is really the centre with boats leaving from Los Suenos, at present the finest Marina of Costa Rica, and Quepos, famous for its game fishing.
Life here is what you make it. It can be quiet and peaceful or full of much ado with always so many activities to choose from.
For those of you wishing to build investments for the future in Costa Rica this is such a fast growing area that this is where to place your monies.
For those of you wishing a delightful home/house or condo there is fantastic choice and the prices although a little higher than the Central Valley in general, are still within your grasp with great financing help available if required.
