Jacó Happenings

September 24, 2010

While September usually marks the beginning of low season, it doesn’t mean people stop heading to the Central Pacific. In fact, many visit the area knowing the beaches are less crowded now. Gabriela Arias, co-director of the Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce, says some great deals on hotel rooms, rentals, tours, shopping and restaurants can be found in the coming weeks.

The Garabito Municipality’s cultural commission is organizing its annual cantonato this weekend. The festivities run 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. through Sunday at the Multiuso, diagonal from the municipality’s office. Activities will include crafts, sports demonstrations, concerts and a Jacó Rays soccer game on Sunday.
