Let’s get started!

Date Jaco Beach girls during the day

Jaco is a fun beach town with a strong party vibe. It generally attracts a younger crowd and offers excellent surfing beaches, thriving nightlife, and numerous hiking opportunities deep into the jungle.

There are also many opportunities to naturally meet women in Jaco as they go about their day. However, I wouldn’t make it a top priority just to go out and pick up women.

Instead, since Jaco has lots of things to do for fun, my advice is to focus on enjoying yourself. Make fun activities and exploring the town your priority when you’re here, and trust me, you’ll inevitably find nice-looking ladies to approach in doing so.

There are four big things to do in Jaco during the day:

  1. Exploring the town
  2. Surfing on the beaches
  3. Adventures in the National Parks (such as the Carara National Park or Pura Vida park)
  4. Pool parties (remember, this is a party town)

You can also meet women doing any of these things!

There are lots of streets, cafes, and shops worth checking out in Jaco. Specifically, I’d recommend you explore:

  • Esterillos Town Center
  • El Jardin Plaza
  • Jaco Walk

 The two most popular beaches in town are Playa Hermosa and Jaco Beach. These are darker sand beaches that mainly attract surfers, and they get moderately crowded during the day (more so on the weekends).

National Parks such as Carara or Pura Vida are very close to Jaco, and in town, you can schedule tours for a variety of activities. These include four-wheeling, zip-lining, boat rides, or hiking trips. It’s very easy to meet people on these tours, and who knows…maybe you’ll find yourself with a group of hot girls.

Finally, if you’d like to go to a pool party during the day, check out the Jaco Blu. It’s a popular beach club that attracts a crowd and believe me; you’ll have no problem finding girls there!

Where to meet Jaco girls at night

As is the case with many small beach towns, most of the nightlife in Jaco is concentrated in a small area.

Specifically, most of the bars and clubs are located along Main Street (also known as Avenida Pastor Diaz).

If picking up girls is on your agenda, I’d stay in a hotel or hostel as close to Main Street as possible so you can easily walk there.

As a bonus, Main Street is located near the beach. If you’re like me, it’s a blast to take your date out to the bars for drinks and mingling with others, followed up with a quieter barefoot beach stroll one-on-one under the stars.

Anyway, at night I recommend you check out the following places on Main Street:

  • The Beer House
  • Black Marlin Beach Club
  • Le Loft
  • Los Amigos
  • Republik Lounge

Note that Main Street usually becomes frequented by prostitutes from other Latin American countries like the Dominican Republic or Columbia.

As a buddy of mine found out, they may not tell you their true profession at first either, only to ask for cash after you’ve done the deed. Always rely on your best instincts!

Dating Jaco Costa Rica Girls Online

Costa Rica is the best Central American country when it comes to online dating. Not only are there more girls to match with on the apps, they’re also more responsive (and that’s always a good thing).

My personal pick is AmoLatina, simply because it seems to have the most girls who are serious about meeting a foreign Western man. My second choice is Badoo, as it attracts many Costa Rican ladies from outside the capital city of San Jose.

Tinder is also always an option, but most of the Costa Rican girls here are from the capital.

When you find someone you like and who you’d like to pursue something more serious with instead of just a one-night fling, my personal favorites for date nights include:

As I mentioned previously, there is no shortage of romantic things to do in Jaco. Go dancing at a live music bar, party it up at one of the beach clubs, check out the shops and cafes in town, swim or relax on the beach, and embark on adventures out in the jungles.

Final Tips for Picking Up a Costa Rican Woman

Here are my final tips for getting it on with the Costa Rican ladies in Jaco:

Learn Some Spanish

Practice your Spanish and nail down the basics at least. Not only will it help you out with getting around the country, but the girls will also appreciate it!

If there’s a language barrier, treat it as an opportunity and not like an issue. It’s incredibly romantic to teach one another words in your respective tongues (and especially over dinner or a glass of wine).

Take Care of Yourself

Just because you’re a Western guy from Europe or the United States doesn’t automatically mean that all the girls you meet in Jaco will fall for you left and right.

Dress well (and not like a typical tourist), walk confidently and purposely, and take the initiative. When you see a girl you like, the burden of performance falls on you first.

Get Your Game On  

The moment you walk up to her and say ‘hello,’ she knows you’re hitting on her even if she doesn’t act like it.

Be direct and clear about your intentions and why you walked up. That doesn’t mean you should be overtly sexual, but you can give her a nice compliment, exchange the usual pleasantries, and ask her for her number or if she’s up to spending time with you later.
