Costa Rica has only recently started promoting Puerto Viejo, their Caribbean hotspot, located in the south of the province Limon.
This region carries one of the most distinct cultural shifts from the main Spanish feel throughout the rest of the country. Afro-Caribbean food, music, and laid-back culture dominates this surfers’ paradise. The lush wilderness and nature viewing opportunities abound just outside of town in protected Cahuita National Park, and other protected refuges and reservations. With a vibrant scene and plenty of natural activity around, here is another wonderful place to visit in a country that is full of them!
