Puerto Viejo Beach, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

(950+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
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. The Atlantic-facing beach provides rough conditions better suited to surfing than swimming, but if riding the waves doesn't tickle your fancy, you can simply stroll along the beach perusing the huts and bars. If you fancy relaxing away from the sun's rays, you can find plenty of shade beneath the lush palms. See Puerto Viejo Beach and all Puerto Viejo de Talamanca has to offer by arranging your trip with our Puerto Viejo de Talamanca vacation planner.

  • A lovely beach (not a lot of sand, though) directly opposite the town. There's some wonderful views to the north and out to sea and the water looked inviting. It's noisy here, but colorful and vibrant...  more »
