Description

located almost as far west as you can go on Jaco beach inbetween the hotel and the beach under almond & palm trees for plenty of shade. Next to a small playground on beach. Safe, hotel security out at night. Quiet all night, few people out at night but was a beautiful calm quiet evening. Room for big rigs. 2 buisness up there is a formal fenced in campground lot, blue wall, tons of shade- named Mango Grove I believe, they have baños and duchas for rent 500/1000. Tiki bar and rest close by, but quiet or to far to hear. Did I mention Free :-) and open free Wifi.

We stayed here for 3 weeks since we had an issue with one our dogs. Great and quiet place at night. A bit loud on the weekends but good overall. Police patrols every night. Felt safe

Arrivals at the roundabout at the beach level can not be larger on the left but on the right. No problem with a 24 feet. We just went for the day while waiting for our linen to be ready but we could have done so much night.

Good place and quiet, next to the beach, under construction now to make it accessible with wheelchair but even the workers quiet at night. Open wifi at the corner of the road and can fill water tank at the petrol station nearby on the road. Totally recommend stayed one week.

Très beau spot pour dormir un peu à l’écart de Jaco centre, mais à 15 minutes à pied par la plage. Tranquille et tu plus belle plage de sable qu’à Jaco centre. Juste à côté d’un Surf lesson et d’un petit parc pour enfant. Nous y avons passé quelques heures seulement avant de poursuivre vers le sud, mais suffisamment longtemps pour s’y sentir en sécurité pour un camping gratuit.

great surfing spot. toilets and showers nearby for 500 / 1000 colones. saw some Aras. wifi from tiki bar still works. stayed 10 days, then we were already 4 vans and police said we have to move on because somebody complained. usually police patrols the spot very regularly and often. we chatted with them and they were friendly. they might ask you for your ID and write it down. told us its ok to stay for 2-3 days when keeping low profile.
one night one patrol woke us up and checked ID in the night and they were quite rude. they also checked one other van and were asking for guns, drugs and ID. so be aware, if you stay longer you might have to deal with police in some way. could be just positive but we usually dont have luck with that

One of the more beautiful beach of Costa Rica, is perfect for learn to surf, we spend here 2 weeks, you can use the toilet from “Jacó Walk” (15 min walking), and the water from the gasoline station. We meet with other travelers here, finally we were 4 cars jaja, was very good days.
Caution: the guys from Surf school don’t like the travelers, definitive are not people friendly, all the time using bad words to us, but you can parking to the other corner ;)
WiFi is working with the same pass.

We spent 3 nights here, sort of we were down the end of the parking lot next to the tiki bar because the wifi from there reached the van and it was nice to be connected for a few days and catch up. It was super chill a few people in the morning and afternoon but it was quiet all night.
The network for the tiki bar is Laguna guest and you need to type Jacolaguna for access. I've worded it this way because passwords are not allowed haha.
Toilets in the tiki bar also and probably water if you ask but we were only there for three days so didn't run out.

Très bon endroit pour se baigner et pour passer une ou plusieurs nuits en véhicule. A l’ombre, à 5 mètres de l’océan. Le wifi est très puissant, le mot de passe dans le commentaire précédent fonctionne toujours.
L’endroit est calme jour et nuit, aucun problème de sécurité.

WiFi password: [Password removed by Moderator.] (Until they change it) reachable from the beach, it is a strong signal.

Definitively a beautiful place to spend a few days!

During all the days that we park here we use all the facilities, exterior showers and restrooms (and the swimming pool) ;)

Really cool place to spend few days. We spent 2 nights in our tent and felt very secure. Juste in front of the beach and you can get the wifi from Riki bar.

Stopped for lunch. Nice spot. Lots of people around. The tiki restaurant is pricey... cheapest lunch is a $6 grilled cheese sandwich. Cooked my own lunch instead while parked. Other restaurants are a bit of a hike away

Après 5 nuits passées ici, tout est parfait, très sécurisé,la police passe très régulièrement. le wifi du tiki bar est gratuit et puissant. C'est un paradis pour surfer débutant. le week-end les ticos viennent assez nombreux.
