Options to cycle along the coast, relax on the beach or hike in Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge.
A short hour-long bus ride takes us to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca where we can enjoy our last couple of days on the beach. The picturesque village’s white and black sand beaches are surrounded by exotic tropical vegetation. Options include renting a bike or hiking through Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge. Try snorkelling or take it easy and explore La Isla Botanical Gardens. Rent a boogie board or surfboard if the waves are calling, dance the night away to reggae and calypso, taste flavourful Afro-Caribbean cuisine, and succumb to the natural beauty of this tropical paradise. This area of Costa Rica was quite isolated until a road was built a only a couple of decades ago, and it still hasn’t lost its charm.
