Trip Planner: Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Limon / Puerto Viejo de Talamanca / Playa Puerto Viejo
Enjoy the unusually dark sand of Playa Puerto Viejo, 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.

Playa Puerto Viejo reviews
All propaganda most likely posted by those pesky Canadian business owners! I surf, the waves were total bunk and the rips are DEADLY! There was no suitable water with any visibility for snorkeling... more »
Puerto Viejo has many food options, it has a very lay back relax vibe. Is more for chill and relax, enjoy nature and the cristal waters. Don't come here if you expect big hotels, this is a very local.... more »
I really liked spending my time at the beach where there are also locals chilling with some reggae music. The beach is quite small but long. There rocks and corrals so you can't really swim long distances.
Beach is pretty standard/good, but the town and the ambiance is the best! Friendly people everywhere. Lots of people speak English which is very convenient as well. Favorite place in Costa Rica by much! For beaches I would recommend Punta Uva over all, but also Manzanillo, Cahuita, Cocles and Puerto Vargas.
