Puerto Viejo is a great place to come and experience another way of living and enjoying life. With 5 different beaches within biking distance, you can rent a bike and take a surf lesson, or just relax on the friendly beaches here in Puerto Viejo. Walking down the street, you can drink fresh coconut water straight from the tree, eat some local, fresh baked banana bread or yucca pudding, and buy some hand-crafted souvenirs made from coconuts, cacao shells, sea shells, one of the many brightly-colored seeds found locally, and other different local fabrics. You can finish the day watching some live music near the beach or watching a futbol game in a local bar. You can really live the Pura Vida.
Puerto Viejo is walking, bike, and car friendly. It is a small enough town that you won't need a car to get around, but if you do have one there are spaces to park near the cabinas. There are also buses to take you to Limon, Cahuita, Bribri, Playa Chiquita, Punta Uva, Manzanillo, and Sixaola.
From San Jose, you will need to take a taxi to the bus stop San Carlos, and from there you can take the bus directly to Puerto Viejo De Limon, with a stop in Limon.
If you prefer, we can also help you arrange a private or shared shuttle from the airport or your hotel in San Jose directly to our cabinas here in Puerto Viejo.
Once you arrive in Puerto Viejo, you can use this map to help you get around. (URL HIDDEN)
