There is no place in the world more flavorful than the southern Caribbean area of Costa Rica.
Puerto Viejo is a laid back village that moves to a reggae beat. Shirts and shoes are optional at many restaurants. Our beaches are never crowded and offer lots of activities including surfing, snorkeling, biking, hiking, gourmet restaurants, wildlife, and friendly people, all of which will make this your favorite vacation spot (people often return once they have visited Puerto Viejo).
Puerto Viejo is a fun, inexpensive place to spend a weekend, week, or month! Rent a bicycle and see it all. You can also take a bus or hire a guide for great day trips.
HURRICANE FREE ZONE!
The Southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is a hurricane free zone! We sit 9 degrees north of the equator, below the northern reaches of Columbia and Venezuela, where hurricanes cannot go. When Atlantic hurricanes spiral, the sun shines here
