Things to do in Jaco, Costa Rica

Your trip to Costa Rica means you will be traveling to a destination known as an endless summer.
Put your light pants and do not forget your slippers. There is enough time to visit Jaco, Costa Rica. If you decide to go in the rainy season (September, October, November), then you can enjoy the mild temperatures. Sunlight in the morning with the possibility of rain. Some serious in the evening. Save money by taking advantage of low-cost accommodation during low season. If you come in the summer, starting in December, you can enjoy a wide-ranging party experience with two very beautiful sun-drenched squares. When visiting Costa Rica, “pura vida” You will hear today, and the words that describe the senses in Jaco perfectly. I would recommend spending 4 days or more in the area. There are tons to see and do in Jaco, Costa Rica. Let’s take a look at the top five.

One of the best attractions in Jaco is the Mount Mirador. The word mirador translates to see the spot or the watch and what is the amazing view. The view is just one part of what makes this evening a hike. At the top of the mountain are abandoned boutique hotels. Construction was completed only halfway when the license was pulled and the owner died shortly thereafter. Since then, the streets have been open to the public and enjoy the scenery. Graffiti artists have handled their buildings and their art is breathtaking. You can easily walk from downtown Jaco or even drive if you have a wheelchair.

Get there: To head south on Jaco on Costanera Hwy, a little Jaco Ropes, you will see a gas station. Head to the opposite side of the gas station, have two roads, take the other side to the south, or the right if you are looking for a gas station. At its peak you will see Trillos Colorada hiking trails and mountains with wonderful views.

2. Go surfing!
Jaco is a great place to learn how to play. You can rent a board priced at $ 15 to $ 25 a day and have plenty of places to study. If surfing is not your thing, you can try surfing or boating. The south end of the beach is ideal for beginners and the northern end is a wave with steep and fast closing speeds. If you are an expert then you should head south for a distance of 7.5 km to Playa Hermosa. It means “Beautiful Beach”, a beautiful black sand beach and a world-famous place for big waves. This is where great surfing tournaments take place in Costa Rica and there are local tournaments that take out the advantages every Saturday afternoon.

Manuel Antonio is less than an hour south of where you can relax on a white sand beach with monkeys and dolphins. You can also go kayaking in the bay or the sea and fishing is amazing for those who want to catch dinner.

The city also has great options for backpackers, so there are crowds who come to join the party in small towns so you can walk around and find the right environment for you.

Fun: Local people come out Friday and Saturday from San Jose to a night party.

Top Five

EL CHALTEN ARGENTINA: ARGENTINAS HIKING Scholarship

Previously, I had a 5 day hike through Torres del Paine, followed by hiking for a few days around Tierra del Fuego. Needless to say, my shoes and toes were slightly worn out when it reached El Chalten in Argentina. Out of the bus station, I looked up and saw that this small village was separated by two huge stone walls. I know rightly that my feet are in a little more violent. Signs that. The ‘Capital of the Climbers of Argentina’ also helps.

In the afternoon I came to unfavorable weather. Most of the rainforests and hills are covered by hiking, so I spend the day preparing for hiking the next day, eating pizza and gathering a few hikers. (Not difficult because it is the only thing to do in El Chalten)

Wilderness walk in Los Alamos National Park

The sun is shining the next morning. The first trip of the El Chalten adventure I was filming was the famous ‘Laguna de los Tres’ and beautiful views of Mount Fitz Roy, instead of walking back and forth from El Chalten itself. We live in Los Glaciares National Park. We choose to transfer to another route and walk up to 25 km from point A to B through Laguna de los Tres mirador.

Glacier National Park Trail of Los Angeles

The beginning of hiking is pretty easy, pretty flat and has shades of gray and gives a panoramic view of Mount Fitz Roy in the background.

Walk for a few hours, so take some photos and enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the campgrounds. No hiking completed without my salami sandwich lunch. After lunch we headed up and headed out the camp toward the mirador. This involved an hour-long rise. This part of the hike was open to the elements and involves crossing a few river flows with delicious drinking water.

Cross the glacier in El Chalten National Park.

Up to the steep mirador, but not too difficult and full of people. It’s like a highway through marked mountains, and with people heading in both directions. We walked slowly and steadily with very little time. When we arrived at ‘Laguna de los Tres’, we were greeted with one of the most beautiful views of Patagonia.

Route to tres lagunas el chalten

Then we enjoy hiking around mirador and Tres Lagunas. There are colorful lakes, hanging glaciers and beautiful mountains. Fitzpatrick is not going to be a better day.

When we consider our time in mirador We headed back down the mountain through the camp and went to ‘Laguna Capri’. This part of the walk was there for us to cross through a flat, open area to the hot sun with Fitz Roy still. In the background

Laguna Capri is a breathtaking mountain lake where many hikers have taken a break for a quick snack break and perhaps a brave swim.

After a short break, it’s time to head home and head down the path to El Chalten. The end of the route is easy, without chaos and downhill. As we saw the small town of El Chalten creeping up in the distance, with the sun slowly setting my feet cheering, we almost went home.

Good Argentina steak dinner later. I go to bed at 7:00 am will arrive early and another 21 km. The trek is completed.

Grand Glacier El Chalet Argetina

Laguna Torre, Grande Glacier and Cerro Torre are next to my Trekkers. I think this is a long day. We left at 7:30 in the morning heading up our first mirador. The first stage of hiking is probably the most difficult part, mostly hilly and with uneven trails. The first hour makes us sweat overflow. We stop at the beautiful mirador which gives a wide view of the Cerro Torre for splitting water and snacks.

Hiking in Argentina’s Los Lodge National Park

The path that grew up was a little easier after that my close friend. (I got up the day before) and I talked injustice for two hours as we walked on a gentle slope up through the forest and open space.

A few hours later, we can see. The glacier is in sight. We ate our lunch just beside the lake, fed from Glacier Grande. Enjoy the beautiful view. After lunch, we started climbing to the highest point and also the closest point to the glacier.
