Playa Chiquita, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

4.5
#4 of 8 in Beaches in Province of Limon
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 very beautiful. You can go Swimming here, take a Walk or just relax. He's not overcrowded and that's very pleasant.

  • On Saturday October 13 at 10:40 AM we were robbed on Chiquita Beach by two masked and armed men. One pointed a gun at us, the other carried a machete. They took all of our belongings. The police were able to capture one of the thieves with some of my belongings in his pocket. They know the second person as well. But... the man they apprehended had been in prison on three previous occasions for robbery. Some of my belongings were recovered by the police and returned to me. I am still trying to located my camera and my necklace. Be aware when walking this area of the beach. Avoid if possible. Hopefully the property owners next to the beach make it less easy for thieves to use the jungle as a cover for robbery and terrorizing tourists. If anyone is able to locate and return my camera (or the disk from the camera that has 1000 photos of my trip to Costa Rica) and my necklace, I'll pay a reward. See the photo of both items.
  • Beautiful quiet and clean beach
