Puerto Viejo Beach, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

3.7
#1 of 8 in Parks in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca
Enjoy the unusually dark sand of Puerto Viejo Beach, favored for its proximity to the town, with plenty of action and activities to keep everyone satisfied. The Atlantic-facing beach provides rough conditions better suited to surfing than swimming, but if riding the waves doesn't tickle your fancy, you can simply stroll along the beach perusing the huts and bars. If you fancy relaxing away from the sun's rays, you can find plenty of shade beneath the lush palms.

  • Full of charm and friendly people, especially mid-week when it is less busy. You can easily get around without a car-good bus system and cheap bicycle rentals!  more »
  • The beaches of Puerto Viejo are not the best to go to the baths (only if we bear in mind that over there we have the beaches of Chiquita and Punta Uva) but give great pictures

  • A distant place in the Caribbean, but worth a visit, the beach is beautiful its Sunrise is beautiful, the road is super to arrive at Puerto Viejo.
