Puerto Viejo is a much cheaper Caribbean vacation alternative than any place I visited in all of the Caribbean side of Mexico. I made videos from Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Puerto Morelos, Akumal, Playa Del Carmen, Cozumel, Tulum and Mahahual which covered the whole Quintana Roo coast of Mexico and the Yucatan peninsula. I could not stay for as cheap in any of those locations compared to Puerto Viejo. I also traveled along the Oaxaca coast in Mexico and could not stay for as cheap there even in the famous place of Puerto Escondido and Huatulco. Puerto Viejo is a hidden paradise in my opinion.

The rest of Costa Rica had been expensive but the Carribean side was much cheaper than any place i visited in Costa Rica.

The guesthouse where I stayed was called Veronicas Place in Puerto Viejo. Also check for cheap flights.

Costa Rica is our first destination for our second year of full-time travel. We arrived in the middle of the rainy season. And for the first week we really thought we may have made a mistake choosing Costa Rica during the rainy season. We also didn't realize that we were going to be living at the foot of an ACTIVE volcano.

Which Month To Visit Costa Rica? | Weather in Costa Rica!

I hate it when I hear about the dry season rainy season concept in Costa Rica. Any month is a great month to visit. 70% of tourism is concentrated in the Christmas to Easter period, but Costa Rica is a year round destination. My observations are for the Guanacaste area, as you go South it gets wetter and wetter, but broadly the same pattern. Caribbean side is completely different
1. JanuaryFebruaryMarch
Perfect sunny weather every day, no rain, breeze from the Papagayo winds makes this idyllic 86F 30C every day. As you get toward Easter everything is very dry and the grass a bit brown.
2. April/May
The Papagayo winds die off, first week after Easter we start to get rain. The first time it rains after 4 months everyone comes out into the street to feel it. It is very special. The flora goes from brown/yellow to lush green after a couple of weeks. It becomes more humid. Typically sunny hot days, cloud/rain later afternoon
3. June/July/August
Costa Rica has its mini summer that the gringos don't know about. This is a great time to visit. The humidity is less, everything
is still very green because it is still raining some afternoons.
4. September/October
This is the rainy season. It tends to be humid, no breeze. We still get sunny mornings, but afternoons and evenings you can plan on hard rain. Rain like you have never seen before. Sometimes the roads flood, even to chest height sometimes, but then within an hour all the water dispurses. There will be tropical depressions where you don't see the sun for a week.
5. November
Sometimes the rains carry on into November, which is a transition month to summer. I love it at this time and the snow birds start to arrive and you definitely feel that summer is on the way
6. December
This is my favorite month, not many gringos this time of year, but weather is perfect, everything is lush. Ideal sunny dry weather

2021 costa rica ???????? #2 (puerto viejo de talamanca - san jose)


Costa Rica Caribbean Coast EXPOSED !! Untouched BEAUTY .

The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica is a beautiful region that is generally less developed and touristy than the Pacific side. The weather here is in stark contrast to the other side as the best weather is in September and October. The colorful Caribbean culture is also quite different as most locals are of Afro-Caribbean descent giving the area a reggae-Rasta vibe. Puerto Viejo, a surf oriented seaside village, is the most popular destination in this region and is located along the southern coast.
Until recently, Puerto Viejo has remained one of Costa Rica’s best kept secrets. This fun little Caribbean surf side pueblo is quickly becoming a popular destination for those seeking an alternative to the more touristy Pacific side. This area is definitely not for all, but perfect for some. The beaches here are stunningly beautiful and there are many restaurants, bars and shops to enjoy between excursions and beach time.

More about this video:

This area was a beautiful place and so very different from the rest of Costa Rica.
The Afro-Jamaican Vibe created a different culture, vibe, food...even the weather was different on this Caribbean side of Costa Rica.

While I do think everyone should visit the Caribbean side...because of the drugs and the crime rate...I MUST say, take plenty of precautions if you decide to live on the Caribbean side.
