LOCATION & GETTING HERE
PUERTO VIEJO Surf Lodge accomodation is located in Playa Cocles that lies just 1,5km from Puerto Viejo de Talamanca,
PUERTO VIEJO DE TALAMANCA
Puerto Viejo is the complete package. If you’re ready for some excitement you can partake in a variety of water sports, hike up some intense trails, or research Puerto Viejo’s bumping night life. However, if you’d rather leave the adventure looking for other visitors, you’ll be just as welcomed by museums, galleries, and other forms of subdued entertainment. As the most popular town in the southeast, you’re bound to find yourself foot tapping to the reggae and calypso beats—absorbing that laid-back feeling the Caribbean is famous for. Puerto Viejo’s Caribbean shore is a great alternative to the more built up and faster-paced Pacific Coast. The surf here is renowned as it’s said to have the heaviest wave in Costa Rica named Salsa Brava (brave sauce), for reasons only true surfers know.
This region, that embrasses the Caribbean and Northern slopes, presents temperatures according to the altitude. The whole region is directly exposed to the north easterly trade winds, which are fully loaded with the humidity of the Caribbean Ocean. Part of this humidity precipitates in the coasts and plains, but the major rainfall occurs in the slopes of the range of mountains due to the topographic effect.
