Tours and Activities
ECLECTIC CARIBBEAN COMMUNITIES
Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is the principal town of the region. Its main activity is tourism and the hustle and bustle of the town is unknown further south. You can find several supermarkets, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, doctors, pharmacies, post office and banks. Renowned by surfers across the country, Salsa Brava is the famous surf break with Central America’s most powerful wave when the swell is up. A vibrant organic market is open every Saturday morning, from 6:00 a.m., just behind the Casa de la Cultura. Its products are excellent and inexpensive.
Cocles is the next neighborhood after Puerto Viejo. Its beach is the only one in the area that is protected by a lifeguard and is a great place for surfers. A short distance from the shore, a small rocky island covered with vegetation adds to the already superb view. A small road of about 6 km (Margarita road), leaves from Cocles and crosses the hills to reach the road that goes from Bribri to Sixaola, near the Panamanian border. The road is in poor condition and it is recommended to use it only with a 4-wheel drive vehicle.
