I love the Caribbean beaches.

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 organic place.

A natural beach, great views
Apr 2021 • Couples
We’ve visited in the rain and in the glorious sunshine..... it has a natural feel rather than a man made/influenced feel and is all the better for it

Good snorkelling beach
Dec 2020 • Solo
This beach is good for snorkelling, so take your snorkel kit with, there is some slippery sections so best go with wet shoes

Covid town

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.

the water coming into the Puerto Viejo Beach seems more gentle than Cocles

Many people love the beach in Puerto Viejo, it's also a bustling centre with merchants, markets, music and produce. There is a night life, a variety of things to do and when you need a moment to sit down, the beach is Beautiful

Nice Local Beach
Mar 2020
Friendly people. Beach is a little small. Good photo ops. Worth a visit if you are in town. Lots of small restaurants and bars within easy walking distance.

Don't understand all the good reviews
Mar 2020
Of all the places we went in Costa Rica Puerto Viejo was the worst. We were surprised just how bad it was. The beach is disgusting and I would definitely not swim there. It's dirty, smelly and polluted. The town is the same and is also busy, very hot and constantly noisy with traffic and there is a lot of garbage lying around by the road and overflowing from bins. You can't walk anywhere without going past piles of foul-smelling trash which was horrible in the heat. The beaches improve further away from the town though. Cocles was better (but still an issue with garbage). The nicest beach we went to in the area was Punta Uva.

Beach fun

A day at the beach is always fun. This beach is very clean and not over crowded. Food around the beach area is good.
