I really enjoyed Jaco's visit! Jessica is amazing! She knows the city like the back of her hand! She gave me lots of practical information: the best place to see the sunset on the beach, the best place to have lunch quickly and cheaply, the best place to have a coffee, and on the contrary the places to avoid because they are too touristic, etc... She also has a lot of knowledge about the country, its history and its gastronomic specialities. I was able to ask her all the questions I had! So she told me about coffee production in Costa Rica, the different kinds of bananas and how to taste them... She knows the trees and plants very well: we saw a tree on which the avocado grow (I would never have thought it was such a big tree!), a mango tree, a papaya tree, a cashew nut tree, different coconut trees, etc.. I didn't expect to see so many animals in town, I thought you had to go to a park for that, Costa Rica is really incredible! It's true that without a guide, I would probably have missed them ... Jessica showed me 2 different kinds of iguanas, full of birds (including scarlet macaws, I learned that they lived in couples all their lives, it's so cute!). On the banks of the river we saw a crane bird, a kingfisher, a hummingbird, a basil... Not to mention the "leaf-cutting ants" and the guide told me what leaves were used for, it's really interesting! Well, I recommend this experience! It's an original and very amazing visit, like a friend who welcome you in his own city and tell you every things you have to know. I'm going to spend a week in Jaco, I now have lots of information to make my holidays a success!
