Puerto Viejo is a small town on Costa Rica’s southeastern coast with miles of jungle backed beach.  This week’s photo echoes traces of this once sleepy fishing village, which has transformed into a sought after destination for sun-seekers around the world.

There are endless activities in this tropical paradise to keep you occupied, no matter the weather, the surf, or the season. Adventurers can snorkel, mountain bike, and kayak. While swimming is not recommended as the currents are strong, surfing is perhaps the most popular pastime of both locals and visitors. Today Puerto Viejo is one of the world’s top rated surf destinations, featuring the renowned Salsa Brava wave.
