The 9 Best Things to do Good for Adrenaline Seekers in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Province of Limon

May 21, 2022 Tambra Mccollister

Only real-deal surfers should brave the torrid waters of Puerta Viejo de Talamanca, known both for their beauty and for their dangerously strong riptides. Surf’s especially up at Salsa Brava and Playa Cocles. Not to fear—the rest of you water bugs can enjoy snorkeling, kayaking and diving in the calmer waters of Cahuita or Manzanillo. Rent a mountain bike to coast to Manzanillo for a full, fun experience.

Playa Chiquita Riding Adventures

Reviewed By AurizH

For me it's important that the horses I ride are being well kept, and after many years of experience with horses i know how a well kept and not so well kept horse looks like. With Annies horses there is no doubt. Healthy, happy, well trained and well kept horses with a owner who understands her animals. Aldo Annie is a super cool and easy going woman. We had a nice ride both in jungle and on the beach. Annie also showed us some wildlife we randomly came over, such as monkeys, butterflies and a sloth. Unfortunately there were too much waves and high tides for gallop in the sand, maybe something to consider if possible. Obviously this is out of Annies hands, and everything else was perfect :-)

Puerto Viejo Beach

This public beach is popular with surfers.

Reviewed By macmarill - Colorado Springs, United States

We were 200 meters from the playa niegra beach part of the Puerto Viejo beach and in early January they have some big waves. The sand where we were was black. The beach was clean except the part that is situated alongside the road. They need trash cans for people to leave their trash, otherwise the water is warm and clean.
