In spite of the health risks, we did see people swimming and playing in Jaco Beach on the day we visited. As for us, we enjoyed the beach from the shore, soaking up some sunshine and taking in the ambience. Looking out towards the water was relaxing, and the view of the ocean and the surrounding headlands was nice. Looking back behind us, was not quite as appealing, mainly due to the garbage littering the area and the ugly painted cement wall-structures separating the buildings and hotels from the beach. However, if you can look past these things, you'll appreciate the view of the growing infrastructure and high rise developments along Jaco Beach, which indicate how much real estate sales and commerce seem to be booming here.
