Trip Planner: Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Limon / Puerto Viejo de Talamanca / Puerto Viejo Beach
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.

Puerto Viejo Beach reviews
This beach is good for snorkelling, so take your snorkel kit with, there is some slippery sections so best go with wet shoes more »
Though I had a great time and the beaches are beautiful I believe the protocols to prevent covid-19 are not being followed by either locals or international tourists. 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.
