There’s a lot to be said about Jacó, some of it is rad, but some of it is quite grungy, even for a surf bum. For years, this beach town has been getting mixed reviews from all sorts of surfers, travelers, and vacationers, so we’re here to set the record straight.
Playa Grande has a ton to offer any type of surfer and there’s a ton of wildlife surrounding the entire town. After reading this guide, you should be comfortable enough with the town of Grande that you can find a place to stay, eat, and surf without having to deal with Gringo prices.
Easter Island holds a truly extraordinary place in the entire world. The island has a unique archaeological history.
