Jaco Beach in Costa Rica is famous for three things – its proximity to great rainforests, the regular surf pounding the beach and its legal brothels. The brothels, which seem to render the most interest, are considered top range with very young girls according to seasoned regulars.
Some of the girls I saw on the street looked like 16 years old. The girls are black, white, mulato and everything between. Some girls have a very exotic Indian look about them and some look Nordic with pure blond hair and blue eyes. On this trip I spoke with a man named Glen from Canada who have visited both Panama and Nicaragua prior to Costa Rica. Glen has travelled to these countries for the last couple of years so I think he is an expert on the topic. He claims that the girls in Costa Rica are far better than any other country in Central America. When he said this he had a big grin on his face and nudged me twice. Maybe that is secret code for “the girls will do anything” or that they are “young and tight”. I did not ask any further.
The price for a session is apprx US 50 dollars and US 100 dollars if you want a longer session or two girls. Glen claims that on a “slow night” you can bargain the price to 40/80 dollars. As always agree on the price before you start your session. Most girls do not have a pimp, they work as freelancers, hence you can bargain with the girl until you reach a good deal for both.
The hotels in Jaco all know the prostitutes who have to register with the night guard on duty. This registration is not only for your protection but also for the girls. On one evening a girl was beaten by her John and this was dealt with swiftly by the night guard and his friends. According to Glen the man was not beaten but he was ‘deported’ from Jaco and adviced to never return. I guess they scared the shit out of him and he fled.
The number one hang out for prostitutes is the Beatle bar on the main strip. Its very hard to not to find this place. After drinks and meeting girls in Beatle bar everyone head for the nightclub/bar Monkey bar which is next door. There you can dance with the girls and drink some more. In Monkey Bar you will also find more girls if the ones at Beatle was not up to your standards. Outside of these bars are lots of Taxis to take you and your new friend back to your hotel. Always travel with meter when you take a Taxi.
Glen told me about a group of guys who hired a larger house on one of the hills around Jaco. Every night they would take several Taxis down to the Beatle bar and pick-up 10 or more prositutes for a private party. I am guessing they got some good rates after doing this for a whole week.
If you bring a girl to your room then its adviced to use the hotel safe for your valuables.
On the main strip there are 24 hour Chemists /Pharmacies that sell Viagra, Condoms and local enhancers.
A special note about the bar Los Amigos: If you do not keep on spending in the bar you will be kicked out. For this reason I think that bar is a real dive.
A special thanks to Glen for all the information and help to write this article.
Bikini Contest at Claritas Hotel 2010:
Note: These girls are not the best looking. It is just to give an example of what is going on at Jaco Beach.
Here is a video from Jaco Beach and Claritas Hotel. I speak in Swedish. First I show the beach and then I walk to Claritas bar and also show one of the rooms.
If you want to stay at Claritas then mention that Trailsurfers sent you. Of course there are many other good places to stay but in terms of convenience to the brothels then this is a good place. They are also very understanding.
