Though Puerto Viejo is a popular place for wedding destinations, it still maintains it’s quaintness. Without chain restaurants or massive tourist operations here, the city tends to attract a more down to earth crowd.
Puerto Viejo is home to a variety of wedding options that can be tailored precisely to your needs. There are boutique, luxury hotels like ours, Le Cameleon, which oﬀer wedding packages that take the entire process oﬀ your hands. Place your faith in an experienced planner and watch the wedding of your dreams come to life.
And of course, if you prefer a more hands-on planning process, there are plenty of options to organize the venue and wedding team on your own. Whether it’s elegance and luxury you’re seeking or a simple barefoot beach wedding, Puerto Viejo is an ideal destination.
Now known as one of the best places to surf in the world, Puerto Viejo was once a simple fishing town. This impressive background has created a charming, laid-back vibe and a warm, welcoming atmosphere for tourists and locals alike. Much of the vibrancy of the city is due to its rich diversity, which includes indigenous tribes of Costa Rica, native Latino, Afro-Carribean and a large population of ex-pats. A day in Puerto Viejo life might consist of lively salsa and Reggaeton music, endless coconuts by the beach, authentic Caribbean cuisine and a hidden waterfall all in the same day.
There’s no lack of activity here! When you tire from beautiful beach days and snorkeling through vibrant coral reefs, take a day trip to Cahuita National Park or the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Sanctuary. For the thrill-seekers, there’s rainforest zip-lining, white water rafting, and of course surfing for any level!
