Jaco Segway ToursFor pura vida purists and locals here in Jaco Costa Rica, seeing someone ride a wave using a stand up paddle board and then a Segway PT gliding along the beach, they must be thinking they are in another world.

Minister drops Jaco mayor’s wave during high tide Aug 12

Talk about dropping other surfers waves: the Costa Rica dropped on Mayor Marvin’s longest left in his life. He has been helping Jaco grow since 2006 and anyone who has visited here knows infrastructure keeps getting better and better. How can the Costa Rican government justify its actions when there are violent criminals on the streets in Jaco, Herradura and in their own backyard San Jose?

This is both a blessing and a curse for Jaco Costa Rica but that is for another posting, suffice to say that many nationals would not make the trip to Jaco if it was not as easy as it is now. more…

Jaco Beach Crime Tombstone Style Jan 26

Costa Rica Police StationSo much has been in the news about violence in Mexico tourist towns that there is a heightened awareness of Jaco Beach crime and violence taking place in all tourist locations.

It does not matter if the story is out of context or pigeonholing Jaco is the result. With all of the emails asking about the safety here in Jaco and what the murders in recent weeks have been about, we will try at least to lay it out what is known around town and not in the new media.
