If Flamingo Beach is tired of hosting a big New Year’s party, why go where you are unwanted? Jacó Beach is more than capable of hosting the biggest party this country can throw. We have excellent infrastructure with a 25-meter wide paved main street and five paved access roads off the Costanera, many good restaurants and lots of hotels in all quality and price ranges. Be forewarned, the prices here are higher than San José and rooms fill up fast so you will need reservations.
Last year I spent my first New Year’s Eve in Jacó after 20 years alternating between San José and Guanacaste’s beaches. Except for the spectacular 2000 New Year’s firework show and concert on Avenida Secunda in San José, I have never seen such a good firework show as in Jacó. Every single beachfront hotel and condominium had its own firework display. So at midnight, the beach was full of revilers who were treated to a spectacular two-kilometer-long show. The hooligans and come huevos should note however that our efficient and effective police force has been doubled in numbers and will be augmented by reinforcements for the holidays so malcriados will be put down quickly.
