Puerto Viejo de Limon
The village of Puerto Viejo de Limon is to the Caribbean what Montezuma is to the Pacific side. Laid back, it has its own slow and sultry beat. The village is a mecca for surfers; it is also home to ATEC, the Talamanca Association for Ecotourism and Conservation, an orgzanization that works from Cahuita south to Gandoca. Puerto Viejo is about five hours from San Jose, 40 miles (65 km) southeast of Limon.
The Salsa Brava wave breaking on the reef at Puerto Viejo's bay entrance is
the big attraction for surfers. Waves are challenging there, even for experts.
The peak seasons are December through April and June-July. The sea is calmer
in September and October when the rest of Costa Rica has its rainiest season
and possibly the "temporal", a rain that lasts for days.
