Jaco is located southwest of San José on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. Book a flight to Juan Santamaría International Airport in San José, and from there you can take an airport shuttle to the festival. You can also hire a Red Airport Taxi or rent a car, but these can get expensive. Check here for more information on getting to Jaco.
If you’re coming from outside the country, make sure you have a passport that is valid for the length of your stay. There may be other documentation needed to travel to Costa Rica depending on where you’re coming from, so do your research beforehand.
Camping onsite at Bamboo Bass offers the most authentic festival experience, but if nature isn’t your thing, there are plenty of great options. Jaco has affordable hostels, a wide range of hotels and online vacation house rentals. It all comes down to how much money you’re willing to spend. Also, staying in a hostel is an exciting way to meet people from all over the world. Go here to purchase camping passes or to find other suitable accommodations easily.
You won’t be tied down to the beach or the jungle while you’re here, although you’ll definitely find it hard to leave either of them. Check out Jaco’s vibrant nightlife, its delicious restaurants and all of its stunning outdoor activities.
