At Casa Verde, the staff are very knowledgeable about the town, the surroundings, and all there is on offer to make your stay memorable. They will be delighted to help you choose a tour or decide where you might like to eat. They can tell you what live music is playing in town or where you can buy a sun hat (or a rain poncho). They know when the buses leave to take you up and down the coast or they can rent you a bike if you are feeling energetic. If they can help, they will, so please feel free to ask.
Playa Negra, situated at the entrance to the town of Puerto Viejo and extending for 10 kilometers, is an important surfing spot. Just before the bridge as you come in to the town, you can see the Lanchon, a semi-submerged iron vessel from where local children love to dive into the waves and tourists cannot resist taking photos.
There are several small beaches in the town of Puerto Viejo which are favorites with local families with small children. The waves are small and the water is crystal clear.
Playa Cocles, situated 3 kilometers outside of Puerto Viejo on the road to Manzanillo, is where the famous Beach Break Island can be seen. Here, the waves break on the beach making it another very popular surfing destination. The sand is white and even if you are not a surfer, this is a great beach to watch the sport while relaxing with a delicious cold "pipa", the local coconut water which is drunk straight from the fruit.
Further on from Playa Cocles at about 5 kilometers' distance from Puerto Viejo is the coral reef beach of Playa Chiquita. Here, the reefs protect the beach from heavy waves and form little pools of crystal clear water. This beach is absolutely idyllic, quiet and secluded with nature at its wildest all around. Here, you can lose yourself in a paradise desert island dream. To get to this beach, you have to leave your car on the main road and walk about 100 meters through the jungle.
Past Playa Cocles and at around 8 kilometers from Puerto Viejo lies one of the most beautiful beaches on the Caribbean Coast, Punta Uva, combining all the best of the other beaches, with long stretches of pure white sand, turquoise waters, calm seas, and coral reefs. This is a perfect choice for a family day out. If you are planning to spend the day here, you are recommended to bring a picnic and drinks as there are few restaurants in this area.
Manzanillo is a small town at the end of the road, past Punta Uva and about 12 kilometers from Puerto Viejo. This is a very popular destination for tourists and local families alike, especially at the weekend, as there are a variety of restaurants here serving excellent local dishes as well as several, extensive beaches.
Gandoca Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge is the nearest to Puerto Viejo, at about 12 kilometers from the center of town. You can get there by bike, by bus, or by car but inside the park itself is for walking / hiking only. This park is the perfect combination of jungle, beach, and sea. Its greatest attractions are the jungle paths which lead to a lagoon and to one of the most famous vista points on the Caribbean Coast, perfect for that memorable photo.
Cahuita National Park extends for 6 kilometers along the coast. You can get there by public bus or by car or you can arrange to go with a tour company. At the entrance in Cahuita, you will be asked to make a voluntary contribution towards the maintenance of the park and at the Puerto Vargas entrance, you will be charged 15 USD. Local buses stop at both entrances.
One of the great attractions of Cahuita National Park is its coral reef, home to more than 240 aquatic species, including 123 different species of fish and 35 different species of coral including red and black which are exclusive to this area. Snorkeling is understandably very popular here and you can easily arrange for supervised tours if you are a novice.
In both of these national parks, you can enjoy the beaches and the jungle walks. You can arrange tours to see dolphins, birds, monkeys, turtles, sloths, and other tropical wildlife typical in these surroundings.
The food in Costa Rica is great. Here in Puerto Viejo, there are such a wonderful variety of cuisines and styles of restaurant that you will be spoilt for choice.
In the small family-run "Sodas", you will find home-cooked, Caribbean style dishes including the famous rice and beans. These small cafes also serve fried chicken, local fish, salads, sandwiches, fresh fruit drinks, and the local breakfast specialty Gallo Pinto, a combination of rice and beans cooked together in a typical Costa Rican sauce.
There are many mid-range restaurants in and around the town offering fresh, local specialties plus pizza, pasta, burgers, Thai, kebabs, falafel, and sushi are all on offer.
Puerto Viejo also boasts some of the finest dining experiences in Costa Rica. For that special night out there is international cuisine at its best right in the town center or a short taxi ride away.
For nighttime entertainment, there is often live music playing in the bars on the beach and in town, there are salsa classes, tango shows, karaoke, and live DJs playing the latest sounds. There are also great cocktail bars serving fabulous inventions made from local fruits. For a change of beat, about 10 kilometers up the coast is the little town of Cahuita where Calypso music was born.
As well as those quiet moments swaying in your hammock, take advantage of other opportunities to relax at Casa Verde.
The beautiful, pure rainwater pool with its waterfall is open from 08:00 to 21:00. Top up your tan by day or discover this magical place on a starlit night, lie back, and gently float your cares away.
Relax with one of Cabinas Casa Verde's experienced massage therapists in their private, pool-side therapy room.
Casa Verde is home to a huge variety of extraordinary wildlife. Exotic, brightly colored birds feed on fruit a few feet from where you sit or play in the pool and the water pipes. Huge turquoise butterflies swoop across the gardens and bright blue land crabs scuttle into hiding at the sound of footsteps. Little red squirrels jump from tree to tree and after a shower, tiny red frogs, no bigger than a thumbnail, sing out loudly from the undergrowth.
Sometimes in the evening, the family of sloths can be seen making their ponderous, up-side-down journey from their home in the almond tree through the reception and across the street to delight the diners in the neighboring restaurant. All this wonderful, natural theatre is right here for you to experience, to photograph, and film, or just observe at your leisure.
Puerto Viejo has many exciting and very well-organized tours which offer visitors experiences they might be unable to organize independently. Tours offer the opportunity to learn from experienced and local guides, to visit local indigenous communities, to understand and appreciate the precious ecosystem, and also to have some real fun and wild adventures.
At Casa Verde, all the following activities can be organized: jungle canopy zip-lining, white-water rafting, horseback riding along the beach, trecking through the national parks, visiting local indigenous communities and learning about traditional medicines and pure chocolate making, tours of local wildlife refuges, giant turtle watching (in season), and yoga classes. Sunset cruises and dolphin watching can also be arranged.
All the following watersports can be arranged including paddleboard, surfing, snorkeling, scuba, waterfall abseiling, kayaking, and fishing. If you are a novice, instruction and equipment hire can be arranged.
