Jacó Happenings

September 17, 2010

Lots of low-season promotions make this a great time to visit the Central Pacific. Here are just a few to check out: Canciones del Mar (2643-3273) has two-for-one happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m.; Jaco Taco (2643-1313) is offering $1 breakfast, lunch and dinner specials throughout the week; Hotel Poseidon (2643-1642) on Calle Bohío has dinner specials for two people for $25, including one appetizer and two entrées; Poseidon, Claritas and Los Amigos are just a few of the establishments offering promotions on cervezas for NFL season; and great discounts and sales are going on in shops like Chuck’s Wow Surf, Billy’s B&B and Souvenir Centro, to name just a few.

Another reason to stop by Jacó this weekend is the Morgan’s Cove Invitational Surf Contest, with more than $3,000 in prize money. This is the second date of the Triple Corona being held in conjunction with the Surf Federation of Costa Rica. For more information, call 2235-6400 or visit www.surfingcr.net. Also, check out the Innersection surf video contest in which members rate and vote for the best videos. There is some great Hermosa surfing footage of Gilbert Brown by Saúl García and of Evan Miller and Brandon Roberts by Gary and Daniel Lynn. Cast your vote at www.innersection.tv/contest.
