Playa Chiquita, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

4.6
#4 of 8 in Parks in 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. To reach the beach, take one of the trails connecting from the main road. When exploring the habitat, look out for monkeys, toucans, and sloths.

  • So far the most beautiful beach we’ve been to in Costa Rica. Good for swimming relaxing and taking really neat pictures. If you walk 10-15 minutes from the parking lot you’ll pretty much have your own private beach. Good for families with little ones. There are some pools that are calm due to coral calming the waves in certain parts which make it good for 4-8 year olds who might not prefer the waves. Our family with little boys enjoyed jumping waves as they came in lots of places where it’s 3ft deep for about 40ft from the edge of the beach.
  • The place is beautiful and Heavenly but so lonely is the perfect place for the theft. Stole the backpack with photographic material to us, we were watching and took minimal carelessness to rob us. Care! The experience was disastrous because the police nor helped us.

  • In old port is the ideal beach to enjoy a calm sea and take a swim... The beach in the Centre of old port, as well as to Cocles Beach are more than nothing to surf. Therefore, playa Chiquita becomes an ideal place for those seeking a sea calm to swim. It is about an hour from the center of Puerto Viejo, and hike worth much because the road is really beautiful! You can also rent a bike in Puerto Viejo 5 USD and go cycling.

  • Cristobal Colón was wrong when he saw this area and called it Costa Rica, because these beaches are million-dollar costs for its beauty and exuberance!
