Puerto Viejo Beach, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca
(3.6/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We had limited time, so did not spend long on the beach and would have enjoyed snorkeling if Hurricane Otto had not stirred up the ocean 
  • Like all the people in Puerto Viejo, its beach is fabulous for everyone, including those who like surfing, recommended for the whole family. As the rest of the town of Puerto Viejo, the beach is great for everybody, even surfers, recommended for all the family.

  • After the Pacific coast of Costa Rica and the volcanoes I went on the Atlantic coast or if you prefer Caribbean, the place is nice and has nearby some parks and institutions for the protection of wildlife. If you like nature and fauna, besides the beach, not bad at all.
