  • If you are in Puerto Viejo you have to go to Gandoca, either by bike or by car. The Park is beautiful full of vegetation and animals, especially crabs, and the beach, the best I've seen in the area.

  • Costa Rica wildlife refuges or parks is more beautiful, it has a viewpoint where you can get the best photos of your life, it is a compulsory visit to puerto viejo and Manzanillo.

  • I stayed in a hostel on these beaches they are beautiful and the local people are very attentive. We rented a truck because it is easier to go to the other beaches from this point, and also to give a return to Puerto Viejo. I met people who arrived by bus, are five hours from San José, but if you have the time, worth. My friend and I just had the weekend to take advantage of, then rent the truck was the best option.
