The coastline that lies between the Caribbean Sea and Costa Rica is one of the most breath-taking in the whole of Latin America. The beaches and villages that lie along the country’s length act as a thin partition between its abundant land and marine wildlife, making them excellent pit stops for anyone looking to explore. However, there is more to the beaches of Costa Rica than the wildlife that surrounds them. The town of Puerto Viejo, for example, is a well-known surfing hot spot, perfect for anyone with a love of water sports.
Perhaps the finest beach in Costa Rica is found south of Puerto Viejo, near the sleepy fishing village of Manzanillo in the Limon province. Manzanillo beach boasts azure blue waters and soft white sands. Its shore is lined with leaning palm trees, broad leaves swaying lazily in the warm breeze. Manzanillo is a quiet village with little in the way of tourism, making it an excellent place for a stress-free getaway. The village has a number of local markets and restaurants, making it one of the best places in the country to sample seafood delicacies.
