Sunset over the Pacific in Jaco
In 2007 when we have been in the area first time, simply driving around and exploring, Jaco was our turn around point. I remember we stopped at this (or another close to this) lookout and saw a few scarlet macaws flying across the road. The birds are gorgeous. Now macaws are rare in Jaco and if you want to see them in their natural habitat, go much further to the South. Osa Peninsula, Puerto Jimenez and Corcovado National Park is still their domain, but things change very quickly.
