Food scene
I highly recommend Jerah...this is my favorite restaurant, I eat dinner here multiple times on every trip to Jaco. The owners, Christian and Uticha, have a gem here that I'm sure you will love, if you like Thai Food of course. Christian is a Master Chef, arguable the best Chef in town and Uticha will cater to your every need to ensure a 5 star dinning experience.

A great inexpensive place for lunch ($6)...authentic Costa Rican food. "Soda" is what Ticos call their local restaurants. This is very popular with the locals...Tip, go early or late for lunch...Rustico gets busy during prim-time.

Closest restaurant for breakfast to my condo...and very good for lunch and dinner too. My favorite lunch here is the chicken bowl!! NOTE: The location is way off on the map...Zona K is across the street from the street named Tropical, across the street from the Cadillac Rock Beach Hotel.

HIDDEN GEM. Hole in the wall with meals worth well beyond the 3,000 Colones ($6) that they charge. This is a hot spot for locals. This is a very small restaurant, open for breakfast and lunch only.

If you are an early riser and looking for breakfast, Sunrise opens the earliest in town, 6AM. Breakfast is their focus, however, from 6:30PM to 6AM you can get pizza, Jumbo hot dogs, hamburgs or BBQ pork strips...perfect for after the bar/club if you are a night owl.

Entertainment, Food and Drinks
Karaoke, bands, major sporting events on TVs, food and drinks. This is a close, fun place to hangout...they have good food and various entertainment most evenings. NOTE: The location is way off on the map...Las Olas is across the street from the street named Tropical, almost right next to Café Del Mar.

This is a fun popular little bar...great bar food (I love the chicken fingers and fries). You can play giant Jenga, sometimes there is live music and major sporting events on the TVs. I go here often. The bar is on the 2nd floor with a very small outside porch where you can people watch.

This is a popular beach front bar/restaurant on the north end of Jaco Beach. I would recommend a nice pre-breakfast, lunch or dinner walk on the beach north to Clarita's (about 15/20 minutes). They have satellite TVs, you can shoot pool, throw darts or just let the music and views sooth your soul. Weekends there is live music.

I recommend taking a taxi ($20 each way) or driving to Villa Caletas. An amphitheater was built into the side of a 1,000 foot cliff that overlooks the jungle down to the ocean. You are most likely going to see a breathtaking sunset!! After the sunset you can have a nice upscale dinner if you so choose.

Fun surf competition on Saturday afternoons, around 4:30pm. A good mix of locals and tourists enjoying some incredible surfers!! Hermosa is the next town south of Jaco…about a 10/15 minute drive (Taxi $15). The Backyard is a beach bar that has indoor and outdoor seating with great views of the beach…good bar food and drink!! Also, an excellent place to catch a spectacular sunset!!

Casino
If you like to gamble, this is the only casino I would recommend. There are other casinos in town but you will encounter many aggressive working girls in the other casinos. This casino is walk-able from my condo but you can get there via a taxi for $2.
