Puerto Viejo Attractions

A ribbon of white sand beaches curls around the Puerto Viejo coastline. In turns sun-bleached and shaded underneath coastal almonds and palm trees, the beaches are the primary habitats for guests seeking the tranquility and beauty of the southern Caribbean. Swim off-shore among the reefs for a respite from the sun and a look into a world beneath the waves; a vibrant and colorful world of tropical fish, sponges and coral. Immerse yourself in the rainforest among the Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge , the Kekoldi and BriBri reservations and the Hitoy Cerere Biological Reserve or meet the Puerto Viejo's wildlife at the Jaguar Rescue Center then explore a cacao forest along one of Puerto Viejo's chocolate tours.
