Puerto Viejo Beach, Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

3.7
#2 of 8 in Beaches in Province of Limon
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.

  • The waves were great and the sea water was awesome. The beach was white, sandy and clean. The sun was hot and shiny. Time for sunblock for sure.  more »
  • We’d hoped to do some snorkelling but sadly the sea was too rough to swim in. There are rip currents.  more »
