Puerto Viejo de Limón: What Do You Like To Do?

We are heading to Puerto Viejo de Limón next week. This part of Costa Rica, located on the Caribbean coast just north of Panama, is almost like an entirely different country. In addition to Costa Rica’s unique brand of Spanish, you’ll hear Caribbean-accented English, Mekatelyu (a local Creole dialect), Bribri (spoken by the Bribri people, an indigenous group in Costa Rica and Panama), as well as dozens of European languages. It’s a true polyglot corner in Costa Rica, with all of this country’s magnificent beaches, wildlife, rainforests, and history to boot. It’s magic.

What Are Your Puerto Viejo Travel Recommendations?

Of course we’ll do some beachcombing, eat rice and beans, and soak in the laid-back vibe that has made this such a great place for travelers. That much is standard for anyone in the Southern Caribbean.

But we’d also like your advice. What are your favorite activities in this region? Do you have hidden gems to recommend us? Can’t-miss sights? Let us know in the comments.

    Visit the Cahuita National Park! No trip to the south Caribbean is complete without walking through the jungle trails to explore the diverse fauna and flora, and if that’s not enough snorkel to see the protected reefs and sealife. After all that action, choose a deserted stretch of beach to relax.
