In Puerto Viejo and the surrounding area the most popular way to get around is by bicycle. It is generally safe to bike around town and the surrounding area. We just advise you to be cautious at night time. Using the reflective gear provided and biking together with someone else is a good option.
The climate remains relatively consistent all year round hovering around 30°C (86°F) during the day and drops to around 21°C (70°F) at night. Its a rainforest, so expect some rain! But like any tropical climate the sun can come out around 10 mins after a heavy downpour.
Dry Season is usually from February – May and again from September – November. However, it’s not a given. Some years rain more than others. 2020 has been a dry year so far!
We highly recommend Puerto Pirata at sunset for a 2×1 cocktail or artisanal beers and some some tiki tacos with a beautiful scenic view of the bay.
Another favorite of ours is Salsa Brava, where you can drink some natural teas, or cocktail fusions, watch the surfers surf the famous Salsa Brava wave all the while enjoying some reggae roots music and a beautiful view of the bay.
Koki Beach is a nice nighttime dinner spot, it has a lovely ambience and great service to match their delicious menu.
For Caribbean food, we recommend Soda Lidia’s Place, hidden in the back of town on Avenida 67. Gindra’s Spot on weekends at Chaman Mercadito. Take it Easy food truck in Cocles only on weekends, Rasta Cris cooks delicious Caribbean food.
You can visit the Botanical Garden in Playa Negra to see all the tropical flora and fauna the area has to offer. They also offer chocolate tours.
We highly recommend Finca Two Waters, it’s a scenic lookout point where you can see the ocean from Cahuita to Manzanillo. You are so high up that you see Toucans flying at eye level, spot monkeys in the trees. You can also go from the lookout point on a mini jungle hike to the waterfall and take a cool dip.
A day trip to Cahuita is a must, you visit the Cahuita National Park, take a walk through it and you will see a lot of nature and animals in their natural habitat. Stop into town and go to Delrita Patty, they serve traditional Caribbean pies with meat and sweet plantain or pineapple options. Ask for their famous Hiel drink also.
Puerto Viejo and the surrounding area offers a variety of accommodation options to suit every budget. From 5 star hotels and Villas, to nice and comfortable 3 star hotels cabinas and fancy hostels.
For fully equipped, large spacious houses, we recommend Brisas del Caribe which is located in Playa Negra.
If you are planning a special event in the area and need a photographer to document it. We reccommend Elena De Luca. Check out her folio, and contact her for a quote. She specializes in portrait sessions and art direction if you’d like to do an artistic portrait rather than a traditional one.
