My favorite place in Jaco Beach to have a beer for Sunset. The food is awesome, the beers are cold and the staff is amazing. Bring a pair of shorts so you can learn how to surf or even play volleyball on the beach for sunset. I highly recommend Selina

I just spent a week here primarily to surf using the associated Tortuga Surf School. I stated in the micro cylinder which is perfect for one , potentially cramped for two but the bed and AC were perfect. Great bar and pool area and friendly vibes from all the staff. Tortuga surf school is the place to come if you want a fun, safe, professional place to learn or improve your surfing at any level. Mike is the owner and under his keen eye has built a team of really lovely instructors, these guys are the bomb !! Julian from Venezuela is the best instructor I’ve had and there was a huge improvement in my surfing over a block of five lessons. He has masses of experience as a teacher and is infectiously passionate about surfing passing on practical and theory whilst you wait for your next wave on the back line ( Pura Vida Julian ) !! If you haven’t surfed before they will get you up and riding a wave within a two hour lesson. There are options for video review to help you improve or capture some great action shots out on the water. I can’t recommend these bunch of legends enough.

Super experience both times I have stayed at Selina, Jaco. Great service and friendly staff. Also a super clean and tidy hostel with a great vibe. AND then it's located on the beach, so you can sit by the pool and watch the phenomenal sunset.

We initially booked a week here to enjoy the beach and learn to surf. As soon as we took a few lessons with the surf instructors, we were hooked and extended our stay at Selina for another week to continue surfing. The location/shared kitchen/pool/bar are really nice here, but the main reason we had such an amazing time in Jaco was the surf instructors! Mike and his team make you feel so confident in the water and really want to see you succeed. It’s not just a job for them, it’s their passion. They are known in Jaco as the absolute best for surfing and all of our friends took lessons and agree. Thank you for an amazing time Selina and Tortuga Surf Camp instructors!

This location is great, but in all honesty I doubled the length of my initial stay because of the surf instructors. They were AWESOME, I went from 0 surf experience to being able to surf confidently by myself. The best part is (Mike, our instructor) and the team actually cares a lot about you, they want to see you succeed and they want you to have a great time in Jaco. Aside from the surf instructors, which was the best part of my stay, the Selina is nice. Small co-working space, but regularly stocked with Teas and Coffee, and a small private meeting room that you can book. We stayed in a private room, which was nice, and really reasonably priced. The staff was great in Jaco. They helped us plan some transportation, and we’re always very quick and accommodating if we needed anything (coffee filters, extra towels, laundry service etc.)
