Puerto Viejo Information
The Caribbean side has more cultural diversity than the Pacific coast. The coast is 212km (131mi). It has been largely ignored by travelers, but is gaining in popularity at a rapid rate. And no wonder - there are so many things to see and do, all within a short distance from La Perla Negra Beach Resort.
Half of the Caribbean coastal area is protected by national parks and wildlife refuges, which has slowed development and the building of access roads, making it a very special place to get away from it all. Our hotel staff can make arrangements with tour companies in the area for 1/2 day and full-day tours. If you want to explore on your own, we'll be happy to point you in the right direction and get you started.
The beaches of the Caribbean are some of the most beautiful in all the world. While the morning greetings start with the beautiful sounds of the jungle, when the evening comes people listen to Reggae music, dance on the beach and, as the sunset rolls into night, the moon above the ocean is magical.
