Playa Manzanillo in Costa Rica

Playa Manzanillo in Costa Rica, about 20 minutes south of
Puerto Viejo.

We had been trying to get to Puerto Viejo Costa Rica for the longest... HELLO, we've lived here 5 years and had never been to the Caribbean side of the country, what's up with THAT? We've always found ourselves on the
Pacific side-
Manuel Antonio, the Nicoya Peninsula, Tamarindo etc. Finally, we got a chance to take a Road trip to Puerto Viejo. About time.

Puerto Viejo is nice, great vibe, chillin parties, sweet reggae tunes and even if you never smoked pot in your life, Puerto Viejo just makes you want to buy a bong and light up, hell, they do in the restaurants and bars there.... and you know what they say, "when in Rome" at least that's my excuse. As far as beaches go, we prefer the beaches south of Puerto Viejo, like Playa Manzanillo, Cocles, Chiquita and Punta Uva, but at night, Puerto Viejo is the place to hang.

Most people think you have to stay IN Puerto Viejo, but there's nice hotels and B&B's along the road leading to Manzanillo and if you don't want to cook, you could hang out at Maxi's Restaurant, which pretty much makes up the entire town of Manzanillo.

Bottom line, if you're in Puerto Viejo, you need to check out the nicer beaches south, so here's a quick view of Playa Manzanillo and watch it to the end when D'Angelo gets attacked by killer ants...hehe.
