Puerto Viejo Beach, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

3.7
#1 of 7 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.

If you fancy relaxing away from the sun's rays, you can find plenty of shade beneath the lush palms.
