Puerto Viejo

Where do bare feet, eco-friendliness, good surf breaks, kids, reggae, exotic jewelry, wild horses, ethnic restaurants, and pure tranquility co-exist in perfect harmony? Puerto Viejo, the cultural hub of the South Caribbean.

It's great to intermingle with the residents of Puerto Viejo. You’ll find that all points of view are welcome amongst the eclectic mix here of Afro-Caribbean cultures, Europeans, indigenous Costa Ricans and many other nationalities.

It’s all good in this town of Pura Vida!
