Puerto Viejo Things to Do: 35 reviews and 67 photos

We were there during Semana Santa & on the evening before Good Friday the town's population easily tripled in size! Locals from all over head to the beaches to camp & celebrate the holiday,it was packed!The vehicles were bumper to bumper,each with their own beat booming from their speakers.No alcohol is sold from (I think) the Wed. evening to the Sat. evening during the long weekend but everyone stocks up.Take extra care if your riding a bike.The streets were full of excitement,children rockin' to the reggae rythym,lots of campfires-fun!Lots to watch!

Directions: Anywhere along the beach downtown

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
