Beachside Getaway

Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica.

Leave your phone, laptop, stress, long pants, grocery list and shoes all at home. You won’t need any of them in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Costa Rica. Every Caribbean dream comes blissfully to life in this beachside town. From the slight rustle you hear when the salt-tinged air caresses the palm trees to the lulling sound of waves spreading over the golden sand, a warm tropical dream awaits. And if you feel saucy and energetic, the surfing and diving are off the hook.
