Puerto Viejo : Costa Rica

Puerto Viejo : Costa Rica

Today we caught the bus to Puerto Viejo, which is about twenty minutes south of Cahuita. The bus station, situated in the centre of town is just as we expected. A ramshackle place with one ticket both and about five bays for the buses to pull in. Consisting of a large dusty dirt area with great big potholes. The fare for the trip one way was 1060 crc or £1.23 for both of us.

The town is a lot busier than Cahuita, however it did say in the guide book that it was a party town. We had a good wander around, in which we both decided that we were glad we had opted to stay in Cahuita and not here. The town is a hub for backpackers who want a lively place to stay. We walked past many bars which were closed during the day but must come alive at night. We ventured to the Bread and Chocolate cafe, which was recommended in the Lonely Planet guide book and had a lovely brunch. I can highly recommend the food here and the prices are very reasonable

Before we left we set ourselves down in a nice beach side bar and had a couple of cold beers, watching children and adults alike jumping of a boat moored just off the beach. It looked great fun. We had our beers and set off back.
