Playa Chiquita, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

Relax in seclusion at Playa Chiquita, a small, untouched beach nestled in the jungle. An abundance of palm trees line the beachfront, with white sand dipping into crystal blue water. Explore vibrant coral reefs while snorkeling, or test your surfing skills among the waves. Be sure to stay within the designated surf areas, as the waters can get rough with rips.
