The center of town (which we like to stay, to be in the middle of things) has many souvenir and surf shops, bars, restaurants, hotels and tour companies. True to its beach location and Caribbean ambiance, bikes and pedestrians dominate the road (see later about the road).
With its blend of Afro-Caribbean descendants, ex pat Europeans and indigenous Costa Ricans, Puerto Viejo has a unique mix of people and cultures
Darcy and I rented 2 bikes for what we were told was a 9 mile round trip ride to the next town of Manzanillo. We were also told that the road was not "to bad". Not far out of town it turned into a dirt road in very poor shape and full of potholes with many rocks. The distance 22 miles!
