Puerto Viejo Beach, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

(3.6/5 based on 900+ 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. 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.

  • Old port beach is a beautiful beach with good waves, but densely populated, costa rica offers landscapes much more cute than this one, but it is worth visiting this place, nor to invest much time, about have very nice beaches, eg: punta uva

  • It is the typical Spa PURA VIDA, its people, (nice), the relaxed atmosphere, and the diversity of people, plants and animals. A Caribbean "unlabeled"

  • Spectacular beaches, a must see! We were in Puerto Viejo to April 2017, unfortunately we had some rain, but despite that ... heavenly!
