Fodor's Review

Nothing against Puerto Viejo, but the farther you get from town, the quieter things get. (Quite frankly, the "riff-raff" factor thins out out here.) The downside is that you'll find fewer visitors congregating on dark-sand Chiquita and isolated stretches of beach can spell trouble. Stay only if you see a lot of other people around. The undertow is still a problem out here. Swim only at your risk, and don't venture out too far. Amenities: none. Best for: surfing;

walking.
