Exploring the Caribbean side of Costa Rica

Time November 13th, 2013 in College Study Abroad | No Comments by

The Caribbean side of Costa Rica is like a different country than the western half. More beaches, of course, but beautiful in a different way. The culture is spectacularly Rastafarian and carefree, and all of Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, where I stayed for a weekend, is filled with surfers and bikers.

I also made a trip to Bribri, an indigenous reserve that included waterfalls and an indigenous reserve.

Finally, I went snorkeling at Punta Uva (“Point Grape”) to explore some of the best coral reefs in Costa Rica.

Right before we left, a view of River Sixaola and, just beyond, Panama.
