Trip Planner: Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Limon / Puerto Viejo de Talamanca / Puerto Viejo Beach
Enjoy the unusually dark sand of Puerto Viejo Beach, favored for its proximity to the town, with plenty of action and activities to keep everyone satisfied. The Atlantic-facing beach provides rough conditions better suited to surfing than swimming, but if riding the waves doesn't tickle your fancy, you can simply stroll along the beach perusing the huts and bars. If you fancy relaxing away from the sun's rays, you can find plenty of shade beneath the lush palms.

Puerto Viejo Beach reviews
This beach is the closest to the beach house we stayed. Beautiful beach with some big waves! Loved it here!❤️ more »
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..... more »
I really liked spending my time at the beach where there are also locals chilling with some reggae music. The beach is quite small but long. There rocks and corrals so you can't really swim long distances.
Beach is pretty standard/good, but the town and the ambiance is the best! Friendly people everywhere. Lots of people speak English which is very convenient as well. Favorite place in Costa Rica by much! For beaches I would recommend Punta Uva over all, but also Manzanillo, Cahuita, Cocles and Puerto Vargas.
