Your friend should be able to help. What is your budget? That time a year is more expensive.

Cocal maybe a good suggestion depending on what kind of trip u r looking for. Cocal is known for a lot of the negative issues Jaco is known for. It isn't crazy and you can ignore it, but it does not represent what Jaco has to offer.

yes, Cocal is currently prime location for the sex trade in Jaco.

If it were me, I'd recommend Club del Mar for the high end. And perhaps Canciones del Mar or South Beach for a bit less money. Mar de Luz is a great value, as well. Perico Azul seems to be one of the best budget spots these days...
