Small towns dot the coast, each with it’s own vibe. The wide dark sands of Playa Negra, the lazy vibe and eccentric eateries of Puerto Viejo, the surfer scene of Playa Cocles, the bohemian culture of Playa Chiquita, exotic beaches of Punta Uva, the end of the road in Manzanillo and the long trek into Gandoca… the Caribe Sur where it all starts at the sea.
You’ll find miles of beaches, but not acres of beach lounges; you just grab your sarong, a water bottle, a book and spend the day sunning, bobbing in the waves or napping in the shade of the native almond or sea grape. Read a little about each area; what to look forward to, where to find it, and why you’d want to. This is a place of simple and timeless experiences.
