What people are saying about Jaco

An incredible afternoon with a knowledge guide and driver to Londres, a country farm located about 35 minutes from Manuel Antonio. There were some farm animals there as well as an organic garden. We picked some vegetables from the garden before making our meal together. As I do not eat chicken, which is the planned main course, they easily substituted with fish. The meal was delicious and the company wonderful. We are so happy to have had this experience. A highlight of our trip. Recommend.

The team were friendly, entertaining and gave us a really fantastic experience. the tasting was very educational for all. Our kids loved it!
