The southern coast image

Puerto Viejo is famous in surfing circles for the Salsa Brava, a hot, fast, explosive wave that breaks over the reef from December through April and again in June and July. It attracts surfers from all over the world. At other times of the year the sea is quiet, particularly inside the reef, and good for snorkeling. South of Puerto Limón the ocean is benign, with good surf, lovely sand and coral beaches, and a vibrant Afro-Caribbean culture.
