One of the most prestigious honors in all of Costa Rica is receiving an Ecological Blue Flag award.
Waving the Blue Flag
Beginning in 1996 (only ten beaches qualified then), the Ecological Blue Flag program rates beaches and communities by criteria that include the quality of the ocean water, quality of drinking water in the community, waste disposal, availability of sanitary facilities, the existence of signs with safety instructions as well as the involvement of the community in keeping the beach clean and educating the local residents about the importance of maintaining their beach in order.
Jaco recently received the Blue Flag award for the second consecutive year. Neighboring Hermosa Beach, the site of the Billabong ISA 2009 World Surfing Games also received the honor.
All of us in the Jaco community, including local businesses, city council and volunteers have all worked together to improve and make a better Jaco. Visitors who may not have visited Jaco for a while may be surprised with the improvements.
The mayor of Garabito, Mr. Marvin Elizondo said “We received the news with great satisfaction reinforcing the hard work that has been going on in Jaco in preparation for the World Surfing Games.
Improving beaches and infrastructure, highway to San Jose complete in the next year, sounds like now is a good time to be purchasing in the Central Pacific.
We have done our best to keep buyers updated on the best opportunities in the Jaco market, so I thought I’d breakdown those opportunities a bit more. Below are outstanding properties at very competitive prices.
But what is very exciting is that these are all asking prices and these sellers are all open to offers. Now that does not mean the will give away their properties and are entertaining insulting offers of 40% under, but a respectable offer of 5-10% means an even better deal for you.
It may also be important for you to note that the properties marked in bold come completely turn-key furnished, most of them are beachfront and $224 per sq ft for furnished beachfront luxury is indeed a great price.
