Well you could anyway, they are wild of course so it's up to them to visit! Video from Annanci Village.
The remains of the boat that has come ashore on Playa Grande near Manzanillo turns out to be older than previously thought, it is now thought to be from the 17th or 18th century. The national museum has decided to return it to the sea as they don't have the resources to preserve it so see it now or get on your diving gear!
... and you're planning a trip to Puerto Viejo then there's no better time than during the annual Festival ArteViva which will be April 13-15. Art, music, workshops and so much more! Most of the line-up/details are coming but if you follow their page you can see the info as it's announced!
The Daisy Gray had been bound to Cuba from Honduras.
Our own Gilbert Brown is a 3 time national champion.
And don't miss the Circuito Nacional de surf kölbi which is coming to Puerto Viejo on Feb 24/25
At beach break. They were working on it already but be prepared for some delays. Photos by Informate Caribe and Hershel Lewis
This will supply a number of local communities including Cocles so hopefully the water problems/shortages that occasionally happen there will be a thing of the past
...but sometimes a nice pool sure doesn't hurt! These are some of the nicest around here. Order is random. What are your favorites?
¡El sol y el calor han vuelto! ¡Disfrutar!
They had already pulled out of serving the Caribbean be ceding the San Jose to Limon route to Sansa but this nevertheless will cause difficulties for visitors to Costa Rica. And they were the only ones flying to Bocas from San Jose.
I'd have trouble narrowing it down to just 14! So many great options!
See all the choices on the Restaurants and Bars page
Celebrating Caribe Shuttle's 10 year anniversary, hot off the presses!! It has lots of great information on Puerto Viejo and the other destinations served by Caribe Shuttle
Remember that children are on vacation and please drive with extra care! Thanks to CicloVida for the reminder and photo!

1. I will stop and smell the orchids. Slow down and appreciate the wonderful place we live in. Choose to walk or bike instead of drive. If you do drive give priority to the wildlife, pedestrians and bicycles! More at sustainable Puerto Viejo
2. I will shop locally and support local artisans and merchants. Puerto Viejo doesn’t have big box stores and we can keep it that way by supporting local artisans, local products and merchants. Chocolate made here supports the rainforest and local jobs and doesn’t have the carbon footprint of something shipped across the world. See all the local shopping options here
3. I will eat a mostly plant based diet. Keeping meat and animal based products to a minimum will keep our planet and bodies healthier. See our vegetarian and vegan page for lots of great places to eat and buy yummy vegetarian and vegan food.
4. I will give back to my community. Much of whats makes this a wonderful place is the efforts of people in the community and visitors to make it that way by volunteering their time or donating to local causes.
5. I’ll use less stuff and recycle what I do use. Maybe start with quitting plastic water bottles; our tap water is safe to drink here so bring your reusable water bottle and fill it up. I can recycle plastic, cans, glass, and tetrabrik.
So there's now a page where you can see the best vegetarian and vegan options in town! What are your favorites? What have we missed?
¡Puerto Viejo es una paraíso para vegetarianos! Ya hay una página donde podría ver los mejores opciones vegetariano y vegano en el Caribe Sur. ¿Cuál son sus favoritos? ¿Qué nos hemos perdido?
It will probably be a new landmark as it's sure not going anywhere. Just hope it isn't leaking anything. Don't think that's what we wanted for Christmas but Manuel Pinto's photograph makes it look pretty nonetheless! Feliz Navidad a todos!
I am a tourist in the South Caribbean. The CicloVida group has prepared a lovely poster promoting principles to travel by when you come visit us in the Caribe Sur! You can read it here or download the poster to print and post. Or check out their facebook page for more info on how to get involved.
Meet at 9am. Thanks for helping keep Puerto beautiful and safe for wildlife and kids!
Buena video para ver Parque Nacional Cahuita

La reapertura de KOKi Beach esta noche luego de sus vacaciones! Happy Hour 5 pm #PuertoViejoTopPick
Sad to hear this; be careful with the wind and the sea until this clears up!
This blog post is a couple years old but what's really interesting is the tales of shopping here in the 90s before PV had been discovered by the outside world. It's a far cry from the farmer's market full of fresh organic produce and the international restaurants from all over the world we have now!
Here's a rare animal who's been newly verified in the Talamanca mountains. Let us know if you see one!
Very interesting new option to see parts of Costa Rica hardly anyone ever sees! El Camino de Costa Rica is a 2 week hike across the country. This would not only be an incredible personal achievement to walk from Atlantic to Pacific but would develop rural tourism in Costa Rica and share the benefits of tourism with different communities. Lots more info at www.caminodecostarica.org in English and Spanish.
It is fairly early days for this project so would recommend doing this in a group with a local expert. If you need help, Gecko Trail Costa Rica could help you organize transport to/from the starting/ending points and other details.
so it's easy to find a tan coloured gato (either the pastry or the cat) / Pulpería Punta Uva se organiza sus productos en orden de color y tipo. Entonces es fácil para encontrar un gato de color marrón (el pastel o el animal)
5k, 11k and 21k routes starting at 7am, 7:30am and 8am. So keep your eyes open for runners tomorrow! Proceeds partially benefit the local soccer school for talented youth
This is right now at Playa Chiquita. Wind and surf are strong though so keep safe if you go in the water.
So there will be some road delays.
But the good news is that Sansa will increase their schedule of flights from San José to Limon to 3 times a day starting Dec 15. There's more info on flying on the transport page and you can book a shuttle to/from the Limón Airport to your hotel there too.
