Something not right?

Description

Nice flat area in front of the beach. The sand is soft in some places but avoidable. Was assured by 2 locals that it is okay to camp here.
A bit of garbage but I'll pick up what I can ... hopefully none for the next person! There is a bar/restaurant a couple hundred meters in either direction.

Drive down this beach and you have endless choices of beautiful spots right on the beach, but still in the shade. We stayed two nights just totally peaceful alternating between swimming, reading and napping. A little piece of heaven. Saw a sloth and a dart frog and had great Claro signal. Recommend this free gem!

We parked at the end of the parking lot in the sand near the sea, just to have a little sun. Ok for one night, it's pretty quiet. However at night a homeless man came to ask us for money, it is never pleasant as a situation ... Try to favor spots before or after the city of Puerto Viejo which is a little too touristy.

Seemed to us significantly better than the spots along the road for obvious noise reasons. Super spot, but lots of mosquitoes ..

Really good spot - we stayed for three nights. In night nobody is around, locals are very kind. Easy to level and to find shady spot.
Beach is clean and good to swim, dark sand.

We recommend this site 👍

Un joli spot en plein front de mer! Nous avons eu la chance de voir un paresseux et une grenouille (vert fluo avec des tâches noires). Pas de commodités. Nous nous sommes sentis en sécurité tout le temps.

A beautiful spot near the ocean. We had luck to see a sloth and a frog ( fluorescent green with black donts). Without amenities . We felt safe everytime.

Nice and quiet place. We slept here one night. Be careful with all the ant roads. There are quite a lot of them.

Camped here with another van for two nights. We loved this spot! Locals came around all day to chat, offer water, bathrooms and showers. One neighbor even gave us some homemade chocolate.

We really liked this wild camping spot! Secluded, covered by trees, access to the long stretch of beach at LTE signal. We ended up staying here 3 nights, and met other overlanders :)

Note: Enjoyed working at the nearby Azul Banana Beach Club, they have good wifi and plenty of tables. Just a 5min walk down the road from camp. Nice vibe. They also offer a soup/salad bar for $7.50 which was surprisingly satisfying. We used their restrooms and outdoor showers with no problem.

Spent one night here and one night a little further down the track right on the beach. We liked the spot further down the road, not as much space but a lot less people around during there day. This was a perfect get away for Friday Saturday night in Puerto when everyone comes down from San Jose and parties for 48 hours straight haha.
