The Top 10 Reasons we LOVE Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica - Black in Costa Rica

In my book there is no COOLER, more laid back, funkier little town than Puerto Viejo!!

Puerto Viejo de Talamanca gets my vote for the absolute "best damn place" we visited on our recent trip. It is like no other. I also now understand why so many people who show up there with round trip tickets, never use the return ticket. We were tempted, I just gotta say!

The tiny town of Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is situated on the Caribbean, right smack dab in the middle of a lush tropical rain forest.  Beautiful beaches abound.

Every plant, bird, bug and animal you can think of is represented.

Puerto Viejo has a diverse international expat presence and a multi cultural vibe which consists of local Afro Caribbeans, Indigenous Bri Bri and Ticos.  

Puerto Viejo is off the beaten path, an authentic destination and the local community wants to keep it that way! They see no need for big resort hotels or golf courses. In my opinion this place is Costa Rica's best kept secret.

No judgement for what you do for a living, just a respect for who you are as a human being
and that respect for all living things extends to the animals and the environment. 

You gotta love this place!
