Pic of the Day: The golden hour in Puerto Viejo
Click on the image above for a full-size view.
Because of Costa Rica’s 800 miles of coastline, many communities throughout the country were shaped by the sea.
Among them is Puerto Viejo, which The Tico Times editorial team visited recently as part of our “Deep Dive” series.
During a Deep Dive, The Tico Times highlights a region’s top attractions, but we also focus on issues locals feel have been underreported.
Our Puerto Viejo Deep Dive stories (so far):
- Off the eaten path: Lidia’s Place
- Developing safety: The dangers and benefits of road modernization
- Beginners beware: Surfing Puerto Viejo’s fast waves
- A town divided: Necessary development or whitewashing for tourist dollars
- Purging plastic: Costa Rica libre de plastico
This story was made possible thanks to The Tico Times 5 % Club. If only 5 percent our readers donated at least $2 a month, we’d have our operating costs covered and could focus on bringing you more original reporting from around Costa Rica. We work hard to keep our reporting independent and groundbreaking, but we can only do it with your help. Join The Tico Times 5% Club and help make stories like this one possible.
