“Paradise isnt lost”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

What to say, just paradise. I went there when sun raise. I was there alone and I had fall in love to this piece of sand. Beach si realy clean, sea is warm. Coconut trees above your head. Also I have visited this beach during the night and made a fire. Excelent place to stay and relax!

“Is That A Beach?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

If you are a Surfer - Great.. U will love it, but to sit (where) on a Dirty Ant Infested It's not groomed like a beach. The Sand is not Pretty and up towards the Volcano the Sand was Black. Maybe I'm spoiled living in Florida.

“Go South of Puerto Viejo, out of the city for the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

The beaches were gorgeous. Water was crystal blue, with excellent visibility. That's for chilling. For the Surf break, it's just on the edge of the south side of town. Right across from The Lotus Garden.

“Fantastic beaches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

It is the nearest by the village. People play football in the streets and drinking beer in the pubs (Stamford, I think it was called). Good polace for having fun and a rest. Yopu can also try surfing because local people give surf lessons to tourists!

“The BEST place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Puerto Viejo is the most amazing beach in Costa Rica, the environment is the best, the people is amazing, and the beach is WONDERFUL, if you come to Costa Rica you really need to meet this spectacular place, and eat the rice and beans and pati which are the tipical food from this area of the country.
