“Many diferent pristine beaches”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

In the town of Puerto Viejo the beaches can be rather crowded on weekends but if you go more in the direction of Manzanillo you will encounter beaches with hardly anyone. Cocles is a surfbeach, beautiful but with quit some people just walk or bike in direction of Manzanillo along the beach and you will find a beautifull private beach. Most beatifull beach is Punta Uva beach (second entrance).

“Beach”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

The beach is a fun scene and okay for swimming in some spots. The surf and rip tides are pretty powerful so definitely be careful. The only place that is good for children in the small little 'pond' area in town. If you rent a bicycle and Cycle towards Manzanillo the beaches are nicer and less crowded, but still the surf and undertows are very strong. Also, always watch your stuff because otherwise it will get stolen...Rotate with someone else and keep guard. Theft is endemic.

“pristine beaches”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Cocles beach is a meeting point for surfers and young people, very colorful, our favourite one. Punta Uva is ideal for snorkeling and diving when the weather permits. Cahuita National Park has beautiful beaches and we went horsebackriding.
