Playa Chiquita, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

4.6
#3 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.

  • Playa Chiquita is one of the beautiful beaches that abound in this beautiful part of the Costa Rican South Caribbean, and include Cahuita and Puerto Vargas, Puerto Viejo, Cocles, the spectacular Park, Gandoca-Manzanillo. Located in the middle of one of the most emblematic areas of Afro-Costa Rican, with its incredible gastronomy culture, its music, its language (Creole English), their culture and their contagious joie de vivre, one of the purest forms of tica philosophy of the Pura Vida!

  • 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!
