Puerto Viejo

Costa Rica

Puerto Viejo is a place full of easy charm. Here, jungle meets the ocean in perfect harmony. Chill, party, surf, repeat: Puerto Viejo is infused with some serious reggae vibes. Enjoy sampling Caribbean stew, touring cacao farms, sighting exotic birds, and falling asleep to the rhythm of croaking frogs. Live right on the edge of sandy beaches and venture off the beaten path into the rugged jungle. This is Costa Rican Caribbean.
