The town of Puerto Viejo is rustic and charming. The only paved road is the main highway which runs along the coast from Limon to Manzanillo. The rest of the streets are dirt-paved, lined with hotels, restaurants, shops, and Caribbean style dwellings. The people of Puerto Viejo are open and friendly to tourists, and know how to show visitors a good time.
Most of the people in Puerto Viejo speak at least some English, as well as spanish and often Patois (the local Caribbean dialect), so if you are an English-speaking tourist you should have an easy time communicating. Tourists come here from all over the world, and Puerto Viejo is a great place to meet international travelers from many exotic countries.
Despite the recent rise in the tourist trade, Puerto Viejo has managed to maintain its small-town atmosphere and rustic local appeal.
