If shopping is your goal, then head into the beach town of Jaco and stroll along the main street which is filled with amazing souvenir stands, cute beachy boutiques, and great surf where you can watch surfers in action. Once you get hungry, ask your local guide to take you to their favorite place to eat. They will know where to find the best food in town.
