Our grand daughters took surfing lessons at the North end of the beach near an old barge. The beach is not very pretty, but the waves were perfect for a beginner. There are many beautiful beaches nearby going south.

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).

Its beautiful, but not a great swimming beach. Go further down towards Playa Cocles, Punta Uva, Playa Manzanillo

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.
