You’ll never run out of things to do in Puerto Viejo, you can keep your pace as fast or as slow as you’d like. Get up at the crack of dawn and hit the ground running, or lounge around in one of our hammocks until noon. It’s up to you, no judgments here! Below you will find some suggestions to keep you busy throughout your stay. The list is endless so feel free to ask for more!
*Swim in Playa Negra, our beautiful black sand beach.
*Visit Cahuita National Park, where you can see capuchin and howler monkeys, you can also go snorkeling and explore the reef at Punta Cahuita.
*Book a fishing expedition with one of our local fishing guides.
*Go ziplining through the rainforest, go on a river rafting adventure, or kayak down one of the many rivers winding through the jungle.
*Explore the restaurants, bars, and shops of downtown Puerto Viejo, just minutes down the road. Don’t miss The Point PV!!
*Rent a bike and ride to Manzanillo. Make a day of it, stopping to swim at the beaches you will find peeking through the jungle. Have some lunch along the way, maybe a margarita or two. Pura vida!
*Volunteer at a soup kitchen serving our indigenous Bribri community.
*Stop in one of the many animal and bird rescue centers in our area. We have several we would love to recommend to you! Enjoy getting up close and personal with the fascinating creatures who share our home!
*Drink chili guaro shots, best taken with a view of the beach. Figure out which bar in town has your favorite recipe. Ask me who makes my favorite, maybe we’ll go have a round together!
As I said, the list is endless. You won’t be bored around here. Whether it’s waking up with the sun to practice yoga on the beach or sleeping at sunrise after dancing until dawn, Puerto Viejo has what you’re looking for. If you have the time, I’d love to take you to a chocolate making class with me!
