Enjoy a stay at a place where time and structure are alien concepts, and where community means more than the individual. Selina Jacó is a community within a community and offers everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. However, don't limit yourself to the hotel – explore Jacó and all that it has to offer.

When you step onto the property of Selina Jacó, you will be immediately transported to a place where time is a foreign entity and where structure is an alien concept. Located in the middle of Jacó—one of Costa Rica's most bustling beach cities—Selina is close to all modern conveniences. However, when you step within the confines of the hotel, you wouldn't think it. Selina was founded on the basis of community, a model that is apparent in everything from its fully-equipped kitchen to its Co-Working Space. When at Selina's, you feel as if you are the community.

The property of Selina is a view in and of itself. With colorful umbrellas, plush, vibrant furnishings and an expansive view of the ocean, the property was designed to please the eye. When you walk out of your room, you have the choice between heading toward the beach and its cool, ocean waters or wading in the large, crystal pool with its poolside loungers and lush, surrounding foliage.

If you want to get your adrenaline pumping, Jacó is the place to do it. Jacó beach is renowned for its outstanding surf, a recognition of which many local surf gurus take advantage. Snag some lessons while you're in town or, if you already know how to surf, rent a board from a local rental shop.

Once you've had enough of the wind and surf, cruise over to one of the local tour companies. Take a crocodile river tour on the Tarcoles, or hike to five of the locale's waterfalls in a three-hour timespan. If you're feeling brave, climb the waterfalls instead of hiking to them, or go skydiving to catch a view—and an experience—you're not likely to forget.

Take a break for a day with one of Selina's on-site wellness classes in which you can recharge your battery and restore your mind, body and soul. Afterward, drop in on a yoga class to learn the spiritual practices and disciplines of ancient India. Once you're done stimulating your mind and body for the day, sign up for a massage to enrich your spirit with balance, serenity and harmony.

Outside the walls of Selina, you will find dozens of restaurants with cuisine from across the globe. However, if you want to stay in for the night, Selina has an onsite restaurant where you can grab a bite to eat or just a drink or two before turning in for the night.

Selina is committed to preserving the integrity of Jacó. Every Saturday, the team heads out to Jacó beach to clean up trash. The community also offers a course on recycling in which it teaches visitors and local residents alike the importance of recycling and how they can reduce their carbon footprints. Finally, Selina is dedicated to reforestation and re-growing areas that have suffered a substantial impact.
