It features local businesses, things to do and classifieds. To place an ad, visit www.jacoguide.net or contact Nuria Ferrero at 2643-1285 or jacoguide@jacoguide.net. The new pocket-size tourist information guide Info Jacó is produced trimonthly and also features key information for tourists visiting the area.

Both are great tools for visitors and business owners in the Central Pacific and can be found at the Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce office in the Pacific Center in downtown Jacó.
