Why Owner chose Barrio Ricos y Famosos
After visiting Jaco Costa Rica during my holiday in Costa Rica, I found Jaco to be the perfect place for me. I always dreamed of living in a warm and tropical place. Close to the capital San Jose, Jaco is easy to get to and from the airport. There are two national parks close by, Manuel Antonio is just a 45 minutes drive and park Carara just 20 minutes from Jaco. The river Tarcoles has the most and the largest crocodiles gathering in Central america. My daughter and her family have been vacationing in this town for 19 years.I hope you will enjoy everything Costa Rica has to offer.
What makes this House unique
The beach is a short 10 minutes walk from the house.We enjoy our morning walks on the beach. An other walk we love to take is up the mountain, if we go early enough we often see the white face monkeys and the beautiful Morpho butterfly. The marina is just 10 minutes driving from Jaco in Herradura, there are several super market that offers all the products needed to prepare any gourmet meals. Every morning we take our coffee in the garden among the tropical plants, it is so peaceful and relaxing.

Picture perfect residence. We enjoyed the pool every day, even during the occasional rain shower. The rancho was a favorite gathering place with plenty of seating. The location is ideal, a quick walk to town. We would definitely recommend this beautiful home.
A wonderful property with amazing service
We had a great stay! We have rented villas and apartments in Florida for the last seven years and the standard of this villa was far superior to the standard of any property we have stayed at. Very well kept villa, extremely clean. Very well equipped kitchen and fantastic garden. The booking process with Danielle was very smooth and Rebeca was wonderful and incredibly helpful whenever we needed an information. This was definitely a memorable stay!
I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay.
All the best
Wonderful Stay in Jaco
We stayed at this property for a week in May. It was fantastic, and even better then the pictures! The house was equipped with everything we needed and the pool was great! We traveled with two small children, ages 1 & 3, and the gates on all doors made ya feel comfortable with the pool and their safety. There are cats on the property that will come in and out during the day, but are very friendly. The location was also very convenient to the town and beach. We would recommend this house and would stay again.
We just got home from our first trip to Costa Rica and it was amazing, we would go back tomorrow!! Danielle was great right from the start with suggestions for dining and things to do in Jaco. Everyday we hung out in the pool, I couldn’t imagine staying in Costa Rica without one. We have travelled to Mexico, Belize and Maui and nothing compares to the kind of heat in Costa Rica!! We didn’t leave the house except for dinner, we would walk to town a short 15 minute walk away and really enjoyed all the different restaurants in town and the food was amazing!! We did not rent a car while in Jaco, Cushi Tours were great and took us anywhere we wanted to go with pickup and drop off at the airport, next time we would rent bikes though, they have a rental shop located just around the corner from the house. We felt safe and comforatable in the area the locals are very friendly and all the restaurants we went too spoke English and also have the menu’s in Spanish and in English, Jaco reminds me of Mexico 20 years ago, you really get to enjoy the Costa Rica culture while staying at this house!! Loved it!!
I am glad you enjoyed your stay, you are welcome back anytime you are visiting Costa Rica.
All the best.
We enjoyed our stay in paradise. The property was gorgeous and cannot say anything other than PARADISE. We can’t wait to return.
All the comforts of home and more.
We felt right at home in this beautiful, three bedroom ranch, situated on a tropical tree covered lot backing onto the bank of a stream. The backyard was like being on the edge of the jungle, many beautiful birds and butterflies including a number of Macaws living in and around the Barrio. We were met by Rebecca who was caretaker of the residence and showed us all we needed to know about the house. She was available to us anytime during our five week stay including coming to clean once a week. The house is about a 10 minute walk into town but if you are from a Northern climate, best to save your walk for early morning or later afternoon because from 10-4 the suns UV is scorching. The backyard around the pool is well shaded with usually a nice breeze in the afternoon, to escape the worst of the sun’s wrath! But that’s why we escape the North in February, to get a respite from the cold and snow. Danielle, the owner who lives out of country, we only talked to on the phone or via email, but she went out of her way to accommodate us when needed. By and large, a wonderful property situated in a busy beach/surf town with plenty of restaurants and nightly entertainment if that is what you are looking for.
The kitchen is well supplied with all the items one would use at home and the bathrooms the same. We would definitely rent this property again if we decide to return to Jaco in the future.
I am so happy to hear you had a fabulous time during your holidays in Jaco. You are welcome back anytime and thank you for taking good care of my home.
