My husband/ I are traveling to Puerto Viejo (CR)- staying for all March- Love ideas to to what to do/explore?

Appreciate all travel tips to plan for trip, and what to do while we are there.


Country: Costa Rica


Madame, there are 2 famous (touristy talking) Puerto Viejos in Costa Rica. One in a river that connects to Nicaragua and surrounding by exuberant flora (with plenty options to spot animals during a river safari), and another one on a beach famous for its waves, lush vegetation and Rastafarian atmosphere (including a cocktail of pot and reggae). Could you please specify which one is your husband destination, so I could more properly advice you?
Hola Amigos
We will be more than glad to help you!
please contact us:

You will find many fun and interesting sites near Puerto Viejo. Tell us more about your interests........wildlife, water sports, etc. and we can be more specific. One activity to consider since you are here for a month is to visit Panama's Bocas del Toro area and enjoy this beautiful archipelago.
Hello there,

Puerto Viejo is such a nice place for nature and surfing, but if you are into water sports like snorkeling or diving please consider March is part of the rainiest time at the Caribbean side, you can always check the aerial trams, Rain forest aerial tram or Veragua than is way closer, the Tortuguero canal from Moin is a blast, lots of sloths, herons, caimans, lizards, iguanas, kingfishers, and more in one hour ride.
Whitewater rafting at the Pacuare (class IV and V) really good, check also Turrialba, lots of nic coffee plantations and more.
Zip line (canopy) at Las brisas or crazy monkey are good.

I'm sure this website will help you
Or don't hesitate to contact us at

Warm regards

A few years ago I started a list of things to do in the Puerto Viejo area as well as direct contact info to hotels, etc. It's by no means up to date but it's at least 10 pages long. E- me if you want a copy of it (free of course. FYI - I have NOTHING to gain from sharing this list/no business interest in this area).
