Since we will depart from San José to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca at 11:00AM, we will have an early start in order to explore a little bit Costa Rica’s capital. We will take a walk down the San José streets so as to experience the first Latin American vibes.
Our hotel is located at about 10 minutes walking distance to some of the city's main attractions such as:
Parque Morazán, the single largest park in San José which hosts the Temple of Music;
Plaza de la Cultura, where we can admire the wide gamut of San José street life with juggling clowns, itinerant vendors and cruising teenagers and where we can do some shopping;
Museo Nacional de Costa Rica, where the museum lovers can do a quick survey of the Costa Rican history;
Barrio Amón, one of the oldest neighborhoods in San José, rich in architectural buildings.
At about 4:00PM we will arrive at Puerto Viejo de Talamanca and we will check in at a beautiful Lodge.We will go out to have dinner together during which we will get to know one another and, afterwards, we will get a taste of Puerto Viejo’s nightlife.
Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is a small coastal town on the Caribbean sea surrounded by the lush tropical rainforest, gorgeous white sand beaches and a huge array of different wildlife. We will experience a diverse and multicultural vibe since Puerto Viejo has a mixture of Afro Caribbean, Bri Bri Indigenous, Ticos, Americans, and Europeans alike. Famous for its ‘Go Slow’ attitude, there is no other town more laidback in Costa Rica. Puerto Viejo is not for everyone, it is more suited for the down-to-earth traveler looking for an authentic experience. Puerto Viejo is still considered an isolated place, where the local community wishes to keep maintaining its roots and beautiful environment.
