Forest and beaches
This is a coast where the evergreen mountains of the deep forest line the long stretches of quiet, pristine sandy beaches. Year-round, these long stretches of white or black sand beaches are ideal for leisure activities. In addition, the area offers horseback riding, sunbathing, hiking, or snorkeling among the colorful coral reefs.
Home to an infinite variety of underwater sea life, Tucuxi dolphins have been swimming along these shores for as long as locals can remember. While there were no records of this species in this area, it has just recently been acknowledged to have immigrated from South America. Furthermore, four species of sea turtles are yearly visitors to the Gandoca Manzanillo Refuge, nesting between the months of March and July on the Gandoca beach within its reserve.

Playa Chiquita, located just three miles south of Puerto Viejo, is among the best beaches for snorkeling, with a small reef on its north side. With a larger reef and long beach, Punta Uva is a pleasant alternative also providing terrific swimming possibilities. Finally, Manzanillo, the last town south of Puerto Viejo, has the biggest reef and is also better equipped for those interested in snorkeling.
From this area, you can rent professional equipment and venture on your own. Or you can find a personal guide to bring you to specific locations. Also, perhaps, take part in the special “Dolphins Watch Tour” which is a real treat!!! Hiking to Monkey Point is another attraction, where you will find another good spot for snorkeling.
Salsa Brava and Punta Cocles beaches are the main attraction for international surfers. Most often between the months of September and December. And then again during the months of April, June, and July. The Salsa Brava swell is world-famous for its reef, side shore power wave. High-core professional surfers prefer the Salsa Brava.
There are other beaches that are ideal for surfing. Like Cahuita’s Black Beach, in addition to several points along the 10-kilometer coastline all the way to Manzanillo. Punta Uva and also Playa Chiquita have rideable but dangerous reef breaks. Although at times some of these waves are ideal for beginners. Several of these beaches host numerous International surf competitions held throughout the year.
The Indian reserve in Bribri or the Kekoldi Indian Reservation is the home of highly organized indigenous groups. We have the Bribri, Kekoldi, and the Cabecar Indians. Therefore, when you visit places like the Parque de la Amistad in Alta Talamanca and you will encounter a hidden ancient world of strong spirits that fight hard to hold on to traditions and costumes practiced by their ancestors over 1000 years ago. Because many generations were able to survive in the deep, dense Caribbean jungle.
Several tribes possess countless medicinal secrets. Also, cancer patients from all over the world visit their Shamans, or bush doctors, in their search for the cure.
The climate in the Caribbean
The local temperature is a stable 28º Celcius year-round, with a very low ocean tide of approximately 25 cm (one foot). This is what attracts most buyers of Costa Rica Caribbean beach real estate. Locals often call the climate a ” micro-climate”. This implies that the variable factors affecting this region are independent of the rest of the neighboring areas.
This region shares very little in common with the rest of the country’s weather cycles and prognostication. We are usually blessed during the rainy season with several weeks of dry, hot sunny days. Also, Residents can experience weeks of unstoppable tropical rains during the summer season. The best, driest and most stable months of the year are September/October and February through April.

- The beat of the Afro-Caribbean drums to the rhythms of reggae and Calypso
