Beautiful! miles and miles of beach to walk, closer to the village it is dirty in some places, other places, pristine. Watch your belongings as it is a town of many visitors, including monkeys. I have taken some amazing photographs and sat for hours too just watching the waves. My husband likes to snorkle there.

If you have a car, drive a few kilometers further south to enjoy a cleaner, calmer beach sheltered by the coral reefs - much safer and the beautiful Caribbean blue you imagine - Punta Uva. We went on a Sunday and it was full of local families - on Monday it was empty. This beach doesn't have the murky creek and river water dumping into it like the beach further to the north.

The beaches here are beautiful! Sand and sun for miles. The only downside....the undertow and currents are quite strong. Not for weak swimmers. For children, and weaker swimmers, I suggest looking for pools that are protected by the reef, as these are much calmer. Great for avid surfers!

The Beach at Puerto Viejo is excellent. The waves here are tiny due to the geography. The reef near shore is polished smooth and can be walked on barefoot to the swimming holes. Good snorkeling here. You can drive, or ride a bicycle up the coast to find many other smaller more secluded beach spots. Safe for night dip.

The beaches are very nice. Dark, soft sand. Great areas for walking along the beach (just watch out for crocodiles). The water is warm. The current can be strong. Be careful and have a great swim. Very beautiful!
