From daytime beachfront venue performances to late night shows, music will fill the town beginning on Thursday March 9, as the festival kicks off with an intimate artist showcase and traditional Costa Rican barbeque for VIP ticket holders. Main-stage performances run Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The one-of-a-kind music and camping festival is set to take place in the heart of downtown Jaco, the popular Costa Rican surf town.   “Jungle Jam has a lot more going for it than your everyday music festival,” said festival producer Eric Freitas.  “Picture gorgeous sun-drenched beaches, stunning sunrises and sunsets.  Add in lush jungles filled with a colorful variety of wildlife, from capuchin monkeys to scarlet macaws. Jungle Jam operates on the guiding principles of ‘Pura Vida,’ that life is damn good, so let's get out there and enjoy all that it has to offer!”

Each day at Jungle Jam starts with live music yoga on the beach.  Then, attendees are encouraged to engage in one of the spectacular eco tours, sport adventures and excursions available, from zip line adventures across the rain forest to a boat cruises to see crocodiles.  Attendees can take surfing lessons or a trip to Manuel Antonio National Park. There is simply no better way to experience Costa Rica up close, often with the festival performers right next to you.
