The South Caribbean Coast
The South Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica impresses with a fascinating cultural mixture of Afro-Caribbean influence, indigenous people and foreigners who have settled here as well as with its natural treasures, its biodiversity and the variety of leisure activities.
This area attracts surfers and young people as well as visitors looking for a quiet vacation surrounded by exuberant nature:
The tiny coastal village of Puerto Viejo encompasses a laid-back atmosphere and provides shops, restaurants and bars inviting locals and tourists to enjoy local art, Caribbean flavors, such as coconut-based dishes, and tropical rhythms at night.
Those who prefer to relax and get in touch with nature will find an infinite number of picturesque, empty beaches, coral reefs and protected areas with small trails that lead you to the heart of the tropical rain forest. The area south of Puerto Viejo is a wonderful place to explore nature and observe wildlife, to snorkel, surf and enjoy the variety of activities or just to relax and soak up the cultural mix.
